Perhaps 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-Zinn's 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.
Utilize body and mind meditations in daily practicePractice mindful yoga with clear, safe and simple instructionsDescribe the basic state of being which is present awarenessCompare the results of unmoving, sitting meditation to a movement meditation such as mindful yoga

Distracted by lip smacking

This is an ok guided meditation. I had been doing free youtube meditations for months and thought I might check out an “official” one such as this one performed by a decorated meditation researcher. After listening to this meditation I realized that the free youtube ones are just as valid. In addition, Dr. Kabat-Zinn doesn’t necessarily have the best voice for meditation. The recording is also of cheaper quality. I could hear his movements and lip smacking which actually distracted me from the meditation. I would recommend that you pass this by and instead search for Michael Seeley or Jason Stephenson on youtube, both of whom have many great guided mindfullness meditations, some the exact same format as this CD.

What I like the best about this CD series is the peacefulness and better health that I now have. My sister is a clinical psychologist and told me that this Mindfulness CD from the Univ. of Mass. Stress Clinic is excellent for those who need to de-stress, to be much healthier, to be more flexible emotionally and physically, to be stronger, to learn to calm oneself, to breathe to relax and much more. It is the best thing I have EVER done for myself. I do it 6 days a week (at home) now. I went through the whole suggested program. My fav is CD 2 which is 40 mins of yoga. Therapeutic yoga. And I also do the breathing exercises. The body scan is really good, too! I had become allergic to all blood pressure meds this past year, so I needed a way to be able to tone things down so my bp would not rise. This has really helped. Be sure to get a “thick” mat even if you are doing the yoga on a rug. I have half inch mat which I got from Amazon, too. I also have the accompanying book on catastrophic living… it goes with the Cds… If you do this, you will be doing yourself a wonderful favor. I am no spring chicken… if I can do it and benefit from it the way I have, so can you. All the best to you!
I would recommend purchasing the book by Jon Kabat Zin

I suffer from chronic back pain and this meditation series was a turning point for me in dealing with my pain. After 10 weeks of practicing these meditations my pain has changed from about a pain level 7 to a pain level 2 on most days. I would recommend purchasing the book by Jon Kabat Zin, Full Catastrophe Living, and his meditations CD’s on Chronic pain to accompany these meditations. The book more full explains the meditations and chronic pain and how to live life fully despite having pain issues. As a Christian, I was reluctant to meditation that might be Buddhist in nature, however, these meditations are completely universal and neutral with no intention of trying to convert anyone to Buddhism. These meditations have been used successfully at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center for years with patients that suffer from pain and other health issues. I highly recommend this CD.
Dr. Kabat-Zinn is one of the top experts in teaching Mindfulness. These cd’s are one example of his great skill.

I listen to these cd’s frequently to help reduce stress, relax myself and help me fall asleep. With Mindfulness practice a person is supposed to listen fully and participate with the entire exercise, but Dr. Kabat-Zinn is so effective I’ve had difficulty staying awake when I am needing restfulness in addition to stress relief.
Great stress reliever, alternative to anxiety meds

I purchased this CD set along with the terribly titled but fascinating and inspiring book “Full Catastrophe Living”, which details his stress reduction program and its benefits and applications. The meditations on this CD make better sense to me after having read the book, but you might still get a lot out of them on their own. I’ve tried meditating in the past, but Jon Kabat-Zinn explains it in such a positive, approachable, non-threatening manner that I finally feel as if I CAN meditate, WANT TO meditate, and WILL meditate as a life-long stress management tool. This is not an easy process, but it is attainable. Bottom line: I definitely feel the difference in my mind and body after I do one of the sessions on these CDs. I am less tense, my mind feels less “noisy”, and I sleep better. If you suffer from stress, anxiety, depression, or physical problems – give this a try. If you believe in it and work the program, it really can help. (And consider getting the book “Full Catastrophe Living”, too.

I guess I didn’t read the description because I thought I could listen to these in my car ride home to chill me out but it is for yoga- so If someone knows a good meditation cd for a car ride- please recommend

Mindful Meditation Tapes Really Help

While some people have commented on Jon’s voice either being too slow or irritating the point of mindful meditation is to quiet the mind – not listen to someone chatter a lot. The discs have proven to be very helpful for me in learning to be more mindful and calmer.
