I have been mindlessly listening to this book about mindfulness. Now I will listen again, hopefully with new insight and focus. There are simple meditations to try out. I feel very inspired to be more present in my day. The narrators voice is very soft and calming just in it selv.
I love this book! I read it about 8 years ago but Jon really makes it come alive when he narrates it Very powerful in it's simplicity.
I really enjoyed this book but the music track made it hard to listen to at times.
Narrated by the author. Soft voice. Good book. Clear concepts. Sometimes the author emphasizes more the difficulties than benefits but I think he succeed in presenting Mindfulness with important discussions.
A very gentle and forgiving approach to mediation, very helpful for the western mindset. I especially liked that he doesn't stress that all mediation has to be done while sitting or for long periods of time.
Yes. Kabat-Zinn is the grandfather of the mindfulness movement. While this is a little heavy on theory and light on practice, I still found it helpful to know more about mindfulness.
The fact that he basically started the mindfulness movement in the West.
A couple of meditation practices.
Some reviewers have commented on the music. Annoying? Yes. 30 years ago? Yes. But I didn't find that it detracted from the message or book significantly. It did get a little loud between chapters, and lasted a little too long (though quieter), but I could always understand him.
And I disagree that a narrator should have been hired. Kabat-Zinn has a soft, quiet voice, but I found that it added sincerity to the message considering his pedigree with the movement.
