Jon Kabat Zinn's teaching of mindfulness in this long yet simply helpful book is at the heart of my own healing and continuing recovery from the dysfunctional penchant for scapegoating inherent in totalist thinking, of the left or the right.
"It is in our very nature as a species to learn and grow and heal and move toward greater wisdom in our ways of seeing and in our actions, and toward greater compassion for ourselves and others," writes Kabat-Zinn.
That potential, its realization here and now in my own life, and in the lives of others is the ground for healing distraction and for cultivating wisdom.
