Full Catastrophe Living: Using the Wisdom of Your Body and Mind


Product Description

Published USA, 2013 (revised & updated edition)
Jon Kabat-Zinn conducts the Stress Reduction and Relaxation Program at the University of Massachusetts Medical Centre. This book is designed to give the reader full access to the training program patients undergo in the stress clinic - from how to undertake a breathing-attentive `sitting` meditation to how to apply insights gained to the obvious stresses of physical and emotional pain, as well as the more subtle stresses of work, other people, time pressure, etc. An impressive middle section, entitled `The Paradigm`, marshalls scientific and anecdotal evidence relating state of mind to state of health.

The Practice of Mindfulness: Paying Attention
The Paradigm: A New Way of Thinking About Health and Illness
The Applications: Taking on the Full Catastrophe
The Way of Awareness
