Mindfulness for Beginners (With CD)
Includes a CD with five guided mindfulness meditations by Jon Kabat-Zinn, selected from the audio program that inspired this book.
Reclaiming the Present Moment — and Your Life
We may long for wholeness, but the truth is that it is already here and already ours.
Mindfulness for Beginners invites you to transform your relationship to the way you think, feel, love, work and play, and thereby awaken to and embody who you really are.
This book can be used in three unique ways to implement the benefits of mindfulness in your day-to-day life:
• As a collection of reflections and practices to be opened and explored at random,
• As an illuminating and engaging start-to-finish read, or
• As an unfolding ‘lesson-a-day’ primer on mindfulness practice.
Anyone who reads this brilliant book will discover in these pages a valuable distillation of the key attitudes and essential practices. Remember, any change that comes about in your life is primarily because of your own efforts.
