    It is everywhere around us. Even worse, it gets inside us - sapping our energy, undermining our health, and making us more vulnerable to anxiety, depression, and disease. Now, based on Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn's renowned mindfulness-based stress-reduction program, this groundbreaking audiobook shows you how to use natural, medically proven methods to soothe and heal your body, mind, and spirit.

    Overall

    This book explains the need for and benefits of mindfulness and outlines the sorts of activities Kabat-Zinn recommends to cultivate mindfulness clearly and compassionately. I was disappointed, however, to discover that it does not include the specific meditations or yoga practices he recommends; it describes them, but does not walk you through them in detail. If you want to listen to recordings that tell you what to concentrate on when doing a body scan or what yoga moves to do, you must buy additional tapes or CDs. I assumed that an audiobook read by the author recommending yoga and meditation practices would include the instructions needed to carry out those practices, but I was wrong.
