Three main meditations used in MBSR courses are on this CD: body scan, mindful yoga and sitting meditation.
They provide an opportunity to focus on the present moment, and are delivered in a wonderful style by Jon Kabat-Zinn.
An introduction to mindfulness by the originator of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, Jon Kabat-Zinn.
Known for his warmth and open-hearted approach to making mindfulness-based approaches accessible to everyone, this is his most recent book, and while it may be for beginners it contains the wealth of Jon’s 40+ years of study, training and care.
Two audios are included, which guide you through various mindfulness meditations, so you’re never on your own in this practice.
Outlining the whole 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction course, and its underlying principles, this book provides a wonderful next step for you if you’ve taken any mindfulness-based courses.
Complete with stories from other mindfulness authors, this small book conveys Jon’s profound humility which underlies his approach to this work. This relatively small book is a useful addition to other books on mindfulness and will help generate some deep thinning about the way you’re living life.
The foundational text for the Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy work done by Oxford University. It gives the background to the bringing-together of the original mainstream mindfulness course (MBSR) and CBT.
You can take yourself through the 8-week programme outlined in the book, using the guided meditations on the included CD, or work with a mindfulness teacher trained to deliver this programme.
