An inspiring and practical guide to meditation
A simple and straightforward introduction to Buddhist meditation practice from one of the country’s leading authorities on stress-reduction techniques, Wherever You Go, There You Are has as its goal a personal transformation of the listener.
Dr. Kabat-Zinn has taught this two-thousand-year-old Buddhist method of relaxation to thousands of patients in his Stress Reduction Program at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center. Through mindfulness, one makes every moment count. By “capturing” the present and living fully within each moment as it happens, one can reduce anxiety, achieve inner peace, and enrich the quality of life.
With warmth and humor, Wherever You Go, There You Are blends stories, anecdotes, poems, images, and scientific observations with easily followed instructions. The result is a unique audio program that is part inspiration and part study guide to a revolutionary new way of being, seeing, and living.
In his follow-up to Full Catastrophe Living--a book in which he presented basic meditation techniques as a way of reducing stress and healing from illness--here Jon Kabat-Zinn goes much more deeply into the practice of meditation for its own sake. To Kabat-Zinn, meditation is important because it brings about a state of "mindfulness," a condition of "being" rather than "doing" during which you pay attention to the moment rather than the past, the future, or the multitudinous distractions of modern life. In brief, rather poetic chapters, he describes different meditative practices and what they can do for the practitioner. The idea that meditation is "spiritual" is often confusing to people, Kabat-Zinn writes; he prefers to think of it as what you might call a workout for your consciousness. This book makes learning meditation remarkably easy (although practicing it is not). But it also makes it seem infinitely appealing. --Ben KallenAbout the Author:
