I always enjoy listening to Dr. Kabat-Zinn. This CD presents a a very good reason to try mindful meditation. Kabat-Zinn has a very pleasing voice with easy concepts to relate to. If you are looking for actual meditations this is not the CD for you, but he definitely gives you a good place to start the practice of meditation with the breath. Highly recommend.

I've purchased a few meditation recordings over the years. This one is by far the most helpful. I've used it for myself and in groups. It is excellent.

I have stubborn chronic insomnia, often waking in the middle of the night. I have used Jon Kabat-Zinn's audio cassette (Series 1, Guided Body Scan, side 1) for years most often to help me to get back to sleep from the middle of the night moving forward. Recently, the tape finally wore out and I unsuccessfully tried another author's CD which prompted me to offer a recommendation for this tape. I appreciate that this Guided Scan is only spoken word which I find helps quiet my mind chatter as a music-only CD is unable to do. I find Kabat-Zinn's voice soothing and at a properly slowed pace (but not too slow)...think of when you read a child a bedtime story. The meditation is 45 minutes long talking you through relaxing your body and breathing step by step from your toes to the top of your head. Often you fall asleep before it finishes. Unfortunately, Kabat-Zinn only sells this Guided Body Scan as a pair of tapes/CDs combined with other yoga tracks which I have no interest in. I also had tried reading one of his earlier books, "Full Catastrophe Living" a few years ago but found that less helpful. Stick with the Guided Scan instead.

Very good stuff. It reminds all of us how important it is to stay centered and balanced. It's helped me to begin embracing the moments of change in my own life rather than fighting against them.

This is a wonderful two disc set for someone who wants a brief, but pretty complete, guide to meditation, and the potential benefits it can have in your life. The program lays out several of the exercises that are part of the Stress Reduction Program as Massachusetts General Hospital. They are easy on the ears and pack quite a lot of profound wisdom into those two little CD's. I've been listening to it for years, and still get a lot out of it. FYI, it's not religious in the least.
NOTE: This is not the old program (with the same cover) that used to take up 10 cassette tapes.

I received the CD within a couple of days from the date I ordered it. I would recommend this CD to anyone trying to navigate through a stressful situation in their life or just wanting to quiet their mind. Jon Kabat--Zinn has a soothing voice and offers meditation segments in the CDs. The CD focuses on living in the moment and letting go of all things out of our control. I highly recommend it!
