Book Description

Jan. 1 2006
Perhaps no other person in America has done more to bring mindfulness meditation into the mainstream than Jon Kabat-Zinn. Through many research studies and his pioneering work at the University of Massachusetts where he is founder of its world renowned Stress Reduction Clinic, Kabat-Zinn has served as a recognized bridge between science and meditation. With Mindfulness for Beginners, he offers the definitive course designed specifically to introduce new students to the proven benefits of mindfulness practice, including: stress reduction, alleviation of depression, chronic pain relief, and more.

On CD 1, Kabat-Zinn presents "Mindfulness 101"—an accessible, comprehensive tutorial that addresses the basics of mindfulness meditation and explores the spacious, luminous, and mysterious qualities of awareness itself. CD 2 guides listeners through a series of five meditations meant to be used at home, at work, or while traveling. Includes Eating Meditation, Mindfulness of Breathing, and Mindfulness of the Body. Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way—on purpose, in the present moment, and without judgment. This special kind of attention nurtures greater awareness, and is a simple yet powerful route for getting ourselves back in touch with our own wisdom and vitality. Now, Jon Kabat-Zinn brings the practice of meditation to the widest possible audience with Mindfulness for Beginners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes for a good start Dec 17 2008
By Amy VG TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I've really enjoyed this 2-disc CD set. With-in the first CD Jon defines mindfulness and its benefits (living moment to moment, awareness as a sixth sense, non-judging, non-striving, letting go, etc), while the second CD consists of six fairly short (10-18min) guided meditations.

There's a certain style of how Jon speaks (and writes, as I'm currently reading his book called Everyday Blessings)...he has these run-on sentences that work for him, as each sentence has such wonderful prose and clarity. And he's personable, and humorous, and thought-provoking. There's a lot of talk during the guided meditations, which can slightly distract the mediator, but for beginners I think this "chatting" may be beneficial to help focus the mind to stay present.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mindfulness for Beginner Kabat-Zinn May 12 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A good introduction to mindfulness. Some great ideas not only about meditation but also about general stress, physical and emotional. The tone of this CD is not as easy as the audio book by the same author called Full Catastrophe Living.

3.0 out of 5 stars a book may be more beneficial... July 4 2011
By Kim TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I didn't know what to expect from this because nobody really reviewed the content... I think the first CD is good but he packs a great deal of information into each piece and he speaks quite quickly so it is difficult for me to process much... I always feel I'm behind and trying to understand the first piece but he's already many steps ahead... Since I didn't really understand the background, I feel like the meditations are lost on me... I like the item but I think I would have been better off buying a book and, once I had become comfortable with the material, moving to the meditations.
