What if you could profoundly change your life just by becoming more mindful of your breathing? According to Jon Kabat-Zinn, you can. What if "paying attention on purpose and non-judgmentally" could improve your health? Again, according to Dr. Kabat-Zinn—it can. On Mindfulness for Beginners, this internationally known scientist, best-selling author, and teacher who brought mindfulness meditation into the mainstream of medicine and society gives you immediate access to a practice that can potentially add years to your life, and will certainly enhance the quality of your moments and your years. Join Dr. Kabat-Zinn to:

  • Explore five guided meditations that lead you breath by breath into the essence of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), a program offered in medical clinics and hospitals around the world
  • Cultivate the Seven Key Attitudinal Factors of MBSR—qualities of heart and mind that lay the foundation for mindfulness practice and for seeing and accepting things as they are as a first step to working wisely and compassionately with stress, pain, illness, and sorrow as well as life's joys and pleasures—Zorba's "full catastrophe"
  • Free yourself from limiting perspectives, and become more intimate with your own boundless awareness
"You're already in the perfect moment for inhabiting this liberating awareness, which is always available," teaches Jon Kabat-Zinn. With Mindfulness for Beginners, he invites you to cultivate mindfulness as if your life depended on it, which it surely does, and experience the magnitude and beauty of who you already are.

Another great audio program for those interested in learning how to meditate and connect to their "higher selves". John Kabat-Zinn teaches Mindful Based Stress Reduction and guides you through several exercises to make you "aware" and put you in the right mindset for meditation. John teaches meditation to adults and children of all ages and sizes. In fact, an article just ran on John and a group of middle school children that he began working with to help them learn mindful meditation. They remarked on how much at peace they felt and how much more love they had for each other before they started learning to meditate. This is a great series that will leave you wanting more.
