Mindfulness can transform pain. Jon Kabat-Zinn,the man who brought mindfulness meditation into mainstream medicine, presents his original practices for using conscious awareness to free us from physical and emotional suffering.
In Session 1, Jon shares seven fundamental attitudes we can deploy to cultivate mindfulness in relationship to chronic pain. In Session 2, he leads us in 6 guided meditations drawn from his pioneering Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction methodology, including:
- Mindfulness of breathing - how to "put out the welcome mat" for whatever we experience
- What to do about pain - how to relate to intense and unwanted sensations
- Mindfulness in everyday life - allowing the nitty gritty of life to be both the ultimate meditation teacher and practice
Through the systematic cultivation of mindfulness, we can reclaim the entire spectrum of our experience and thrive in the face of the "full catastrophe" of the human condition.
