Mindfulness is recognized as a highly effective tool for dealing with stress, chronic pain, and other illnesses.
Today, with a 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.'
