Book Description

Yes, there actually is a way to let everything become your teacher, to let life itself, and everything that unfolds within it, the “full catastrophe” of the human condition in the words of Zorba the Greek, shape your ongoing development and maturation. Millions have followed this path to greater sanity, balance, and well-being, often in the face of huge stress, pain, uncertainty, sorrow, and illness.

In his landmark book, Full Catastrophe Living, Jon Kabat-Zinn shared this innovative approach, known as mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), with the world. Now, in this companion volume, 100 pointers from that groundbreaking work have been carefully selected to inspire you to embrace what is deepest and best and most beautiful in yourself.

Whether you are trying to learn patience, cope with pain, deal with the enormous stress and challenges of the age we live in, improve your relationships, or free yourself from destructive emotions, thoughts, and behaviors, these deceptively simple meditations will remind you that you have deep inner resources to draw upon, the most important of which is the present moment itself. Regardless of your age or whether you are familiar with the healing power of mindfulness, this insightful, inspirational guide will help you to honor, embrace, learn from, and grow into each moment of your life.


From the Trade Paperback edition.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just Read Author's Books September 13, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found this to be rather mediocre set of confirmations, I think picking up the Author's book, "Whereever you go, there you are" and reading a few sentences to be be a better short, pick me up.

This book helped me a lot. I read one or two chapters each morning, and sometimes went back and read them again. I am learning to quieten my mind and feel at one with the universe.

A condensed, helpful way I use as a daily reminder to stay in the moment. Very helpful advice in assisting our daily journey while letting our thoughts be recognized without taking us off the track of mindfulness living.

By Karen
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a nice reference book that derives it's content from the book Full Catastrophe Living. I keep this version at my desk and will read a quote from it when I just need that extra reminder to be mindful.
