Publisher's Summary

Pain, suffering, and stress can be intolerable, but it doesn't have to be this way. You Are Not Your Pain reveals a simple set of mindfulness-based practices that you can incorporate into your daily life to relieve chronic pain and the suffering and stress of illness. Clinical trials show that mindfulness meditation can be as effective as prescription painkillers and can enhance the body's natural healing systems, while also significantly reducing anxiety, depression, irritability, exhaustion, and insomnia - all symptoms that can arise from chronic pain and illness.

Developed by two authors who themselves have struggled with severe pain due to serious injuries, this accessible book reveals the eight-week program that will quickly melt away your suffering and help you cope with your pain. Taking up just 10-20 minutes per day, this is a simple yet effective way to soothe some of the common causes of pain like back problems, arthritis, migraine, and diabetes, but can also be effective for people undergoing chemotherapy, people with heart disease, fibromyalgia, celiac disease, and much more. Listeners will be able to identify and focus on secondary suffering which is brought about when the mind becomes fixated on the anxiety of pain, and begins to anticipate it, thereby making suffering worse. Using the meditations and techniques within the book, listeners will learn to breathe in to their pain and dissolve suffering by soothing the brain's pain networks and leaving you able to live life fully again.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "really helpful book"

    I highly recommend this book for those with chronic pain. The narrator is excellent, I love how soothing her voice is. I use the bodyscan and the breathing anchor meditations all the time, and they have really helped me to become more mindful. this audiobook has also helped me to become more self aware, especially when it comes to negative emotions. I even sleep better at night now that my mind has learned to be calmer.
