Explore the Power of Mindfulness in Your Everyday Life
This is Jon Kabat-Zinn's most comprehensive audio program on mindfulness. It combines gentle guidance with conversational narratives weaving together science, poetry, and the art of living?all in the service of deepening your appreciation of the "workability" of the present moment, no matter how hard or challenging your circumstances.
This moment, when held in awareness with gentleness and self-compassion, has the potential for catalyzing, healing, and transforming your life. Mindfulness meditation is both a discipline and an adventure. This program accompanies you on that adventure as you become your own most trusted friend and guide. With a spirit of humor and exploration, Jon Kabat-Zinn invites us to learn and cultivate various applications of mindfulness in everyday living, just as you might cultivate a garden. These include:
Making use of your senses to amplify perceptual awareness, embodied presence, mental clarity, and contentment in the timeless present we call now
Recognizing emotional patterns that trigger suffering and learning ways to restore emotional balance
Realizing how each moment can be a ?branch point??a portal into a new way of being that invites you to enter
Practical ways for bringing greater mindfulness and heartfulness into your relationships, work, and parenting
Step-by-step guidance through basic mindfulness practices including mindfulness of breathing and body sensations, mindful eating, gentle yoga, and lovingkindness
Adventures in Mindfulness will teach you how to befriend yourself as you are in this moment, in your fullness, and rediscover your intrinsic beauty and wholeness.
