Guided Mindfulness Meditation Series 1: A Complete Guided Mindfulness Meditation Program from Jon Kabat-Zinn by Jon Kabat-ZinnPerhaps no other person has done more to bring mindfulness meditation into the contemporary landscape of America than Jon Kabat-Zinn. Through a number of research studies, and through Kabat-Zinns pioneering work at the University of Massachusetts Medical School where he is founder of its world-renowned Stress Reduction Clinic, mindfulness is finally being recognized as a highly effective tool for dealing with stress, chronic pain, and other illnesses.
Now with this four-part home training course, Jon Kabat-Zinn offers listeners the definitive mindfulness meditation practice on CD. We are not trying to actively achieve a state of deep relaxation—or any other state for that matter—while practicing mindfulness, he teaches. But interestingly, by opening to an awareness of how things actually are in the present moment, we often taste very deep states of relaxation and well-being of both body and mind.
Join the bestselling author of Coming to Our Senses (Hyperion, 2005) and Wherever You Go, There You Are (Hyperion 1995) to develop and deepen your personal mindfulness practice, and to taste the universal aspects of stillness, clarity, wisdom, compassion, and well-being that Guided Mindfulness Meditation offers.

This form of medicine is focused on the clinical, social, and human performance effects of mindfulness meditation training in various populations. Over the past 20 years, Kabat-Zinn has become internationally known for his tireless effort in trying to bring mindfulness into the mainstream of medicine and society. He has found a lot of sucess: thousands of people all over the world have begun incorporating his teachings due to the fact that his books are not only spiritually compelling, but relevant to every day life as well.
The man now considered the godfather of modern mindfulness was a graduate student from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology MIT and an anti-Vietnam-war protester, agitating alongside the Black Panthers and the French playwright Jean Genet. But they certainly left a lot of marks on my face. They pulled me into the back of the police station and beat the shit out of me. He sits beneath the statue of Mahatma Gandhi on Parliament Square in London taking a breather after going straight from an overnight flight out of Boston into a minute talk to a gathering of international parliamentarians about how he thinks mindfulness could — to put it bluntly — change the world. With others, he pioneered an eight-week mindfulness-based stress-reduction course at the University of Massachusetts Medical School for patients with chronic pain, harnessing the fundamentals of mindfulness meditation as taught by the Buddha, but with the Buddhism taken out. Kabat-Zinn had been meditating since , but had no compunction in playing the Buddhism right down. The UMass Stress Reduction Clinic opened its doors in and taught people with chronic back pain, victims of industrial accidents, cancer patients and sometimes paraplegics.
