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.


We may long for wholeness, suggests Jon Kabat-Zinn, but the truth is that it is already here and already ours. The practice of mindfulness holds the possibility of not just a fleeting sense of contentment, but a true embracing of a deeper unity that envelops and permeates our lives. With Mindfulness for Beginners you are invited to learn how to transform your relationship to the way you think, feel, love, work, and play—and thereby awaken to and embody more completely who you really are.

Here, the teacher, scientist, and clinician who first demonstrated the benefits of mindfulness within mainstream Western medicine offers a book that you can use in three unique ways: as a collection of reflections and practices to be opened and explored at random; as an illuminating and engaging start-to-finish read; or as an unfolding “lesson- a-day” primer on mindfulness practice.

Beginning and advanced meditators alike will discover in these pages a valuable distillation of the key attitudes and essential practices that Jon Kabat-Zinn has found most useful with his students, including:

* Why heartfulness is synonymous with true mindfulness

* The value of coming back to our bodies and to our senses over and over again

* How our thoughts “self-liberate” when touched by awareness

* Moving beyond our “story” into direct experience

* Stabilizing our attention and presence amidst daily activities

* The three poisons that cause suffering—and their antidotes

* How mindfulness heals, even after the fact

*Reclaiming our wholeness, and more

The prescription for living a more mindful life seems simple enough: return your awareness again and again to whatever is going on. But if you’ve tried it, you know that here is where all the questions and challenges really begin. Mindfulness for Beginners provides welcome answers, insights, and instruction to help us make that shift, moment by moment, into a more spacious, clear, reliable, and loving connection with ourselves and the world.


Mehr über den Autor

Wer oder was ist MBSR? Die Buchstabenfolge steht für "Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction" (Stressbewältigung durch die Praxis der Achtsamkeit), 1979 begründet von Jon Kabat-Zinn, emeritiertem Professor für Medizin an der Universität von Massachusetts. Der 1944 in New York geborene Wissenschaftler lehrt die Achtsamkeit uns selbst und anderen gegenüber und plädiert für die Annäherung von Wissenschaft und Meditation. In seinen Büchern und Vorträgen spricht der Autor über die "Stressbewältigung durch Achtsamkeit" oder darüber, wie Menschen "Zur Besinnung kommen". Mit seiner Frau Myla schrieb er auch über den Alltag mit mehreren Kindern: "Mit Kindern wachsen - Die Praxis der Achtsamkeit in der Familie". Von Massachusetts aus hat sich MBSR weltweit verbreitet und findet auch in Deutschland immer mehr Anhänger.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A very good introduction to mindfulness 1. September 2009
Format:Audio CD
Jon Kabat-Zinn really knows his stuff. He is one of the founding authors of mindfulness based therapy and you can hear it in every word he says. He has a calm, soothing and non-intrusive voice. I could listen to him again and again. CD 1 gives you a general idea on mindfulness, what it is about, how it was first used in his clinic and how you can learn it yourself. CD 2 gives you some lessons to practice mindfulness with. I really enjoyed the one with the raisins. For reading I recommend "Full Catastrophe Living" from J. Kabat-Zinn

Format:Kindle Edition
Ich gehe jetzt vom Hörbuch aus, dieses ist gut gesprochen, teilweise etwas salbungsvoll, aber sehr informativ zum Thema. Der Begriff 'Achtsamkeit' wird leider inflationär verwendet und es gibt viele Esoterik-Autoren, die ihn für ihre Zwecke missbrauchen. Kabat-Zinn zählt jedoch zu denen, die sich ernsthaft und rational mit dem Thema auseinander setzen. Man ist mit seinen Büchern neben denen von Gunaratana und Goenka gut beraten.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Foundation and Practice - the basics for Westerners 23. April 2007
Von Patrick D. Goonan - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Audio CD|Verifizierter Kauf
This CD is an introduction to mindfulness that is aimed at an audience of Westerners who are not familiar with Eastern philosophy. This audio provides the foundational concepts necessary to have a meditation practice and gives a taste of several different types of practice.

The first CD covers concepts such as the present moment, the definition of mindfulness at attending to what is arising in the moment, awareness, the relationship between mind and heart, etc. It also covers the importance of openness and curiosity vs. judgment and identification with what is going on. That is to say, it distinguishes between a witness of what is arising and the phenomena in question. In other words, it makes the point that there is something standing behind the mind, emotions, sensations, etc. and that this something is a type of consciousness called witness consciousness. This CD also goes into the important of allowing (non-striving) vs. a desire that pushes toward acheiving something. In the last section of CD Zinn contrasts awareness which is passive and accepting with thinking which arises out of desire.

The second CD provides an introduction to some minfulness practices such as mindful eating, breath meditation, mindfulness of the body as a whole, mindfulness of objects such as sounds, thoughts and emotions. It also introduces the notion of meditation as pure awareness without judgment. One might compare this to pure experience without desire or aversion. Although one is given a taste of each of these practices, none of them are comprehensively covered and the guided meditations are not long enough for practice purposes except for a complete beginner.

In general, meditative practices are divided into concentration practices (narrowing the attention) and mindfulness practices (awareness is expanded in a detached way). On the this CD, all of the practices are termed mindfulness practices, but the CD actually contains both types which in essence are about attending to different aspects of reality in different ways.

As someone who teaches meditation to Westerners myself, I find this an excellent, gentle and easily accessible introduction. It achieves what it sets out to do, which is to provide a philosophical framework for a meditation practice and the very basics of starting one.

If you enjoy this tape and you want to take things deeper, then Guided Mindfulness Meditation (Guided Mindfulness) by the same author would be a logical continuation. The book Breath by Breath: The Liberating Practice of Insight Meditation would also be a great next step. Something complimentary that build on it, but is a bit more heart-centered would be Meditation for Beginners. There is also a listmania list on my profile for meditation that has other recommendations.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Philosophy & Practice for Improved Health 17. August 2006
Von Rebecca of Amazon - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Audio CD
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is a program used in hospitals and medical clinics around the world. Jon Kabat-Zinn teaches a foundation for mindfulness that encourages healing. He is the founding director for the Stress Reduction Clinic and Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center.

The first CD explores the philosophy and practice of mindfulness. It is entertaining and I love Jon Kabat-Zinn's sense of humor. This is the section where you learn about positive qualities you can cultivate to enhance your life and negative aspects that can be poision to the body and heart.

The second CD then explores an actual practice session where you experience keeping your attention on the moment. Paying attention on purpose can be enlightening all on its own as you awaken to a more compassionate moment and unveil inner wisdom.

Meditation is a universal practice and you don't need to belong to any specific religion to experience the benefits of exploring moments of relaxing peace.

Jon Kabat-Zinn's calming voice is wonderful to listen to and his guided meditation sections explore a variety of essential principles needed to enjoy a meditation session. Eventually you start to breathe more deeply, relax into not thinking and happiness rises from within. It is truly a beautiful way to reconnect with who you truly are and while you may assume sitting quietly is hardly doing anything at all, it is amazing what can be accomplished in silence.

Meditation strengthens you so you walk through the earth with a different focus, more awareness and even more confidence. This CD does focus on the basics of meditation and therefore is perfect for anyone who wants to heal the mind, body and spirit.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Mindfulness for Intermediates? 5. März 2012
Von Bee - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
Unlike many who reviewed this book, I have no experience with meditation, so Mindfulness for Beginners promised to be a great introduction, particularly given the stellar reputation of the author. Now that I've read it, however, I don't think it is the optimal book for those with no knowledge of or experience with meditation. I found the book to be a scattered collection of somewhat random reflections on mindfulness that seem more appropriate for those who have already started a meditation practice. Even though the author writes "we will be exploring together the subject of mindfulness as if you'd never heard about it and had no idea what it is or, for that matter, why it might be worth integrating into your life," the book lacked the structure and organization to meet that goal. The author points out that everything is explained in much greater detail in some of his previous books, and I am thinking about turning to them in search of a more coherent presentation.

Although the entire book can be read in an hour (most chapters are only one or two pages), I don't think there would be much benefit from reading it in one sitting. The book seems designed to be read a brief chapter or two at a time, followed by reflection. From my perspective, the chapters do not always seem sequentially or logically linked. They are more like mindfulness devotionals. I found some of the chapters thought-provoking, but not consistently so. I would have preferred a more organized book that started by laying out a foundation for how and why meditation is helpful, followed by instruction for getting started.

The enclosed CD is a very nice bonus. I used it to guide my first-ever attempt at meditation, and I felt very good about the process and the outcome. If I continue to meditate, I may refer to various chapters in this book for inspiration, but I am more likely to use the recommended reading list to find books that help make meditation more accessible to a true beginner.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Life changing 11. August 2007
Von Jill - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Audio CD
I have been lucky enough to take two Mindfulness courses and they have changed my life. Both were run by excellent course leaders but nothing compares with hearing Mindfulness founder Jon Kabat Zinn discuss the philosophy and methodology behind it. His wit, compassion and way with words themselves make CD1 compulsive listening as well as explaining the reasons for CD2 which are the practices themselves. I cannot recommend this highly enough to anybody who wants to learn about themselves and especially those seeking release from troubled mind states such as anxiety and depression. Buy it- Mindfulness practitioners will tell you honestly that they make no promises to 'fix things' but it might change your life too...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Not Just for Beginners 9. Januar 2012
Von Bill Gallagher - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
In the introduction to Mindfulness for Beginners (p.4) Jon Kabat-Zinn tells us he has covered material on mindfulness in greater detail in other books such as Full Catastrophe Living. But as anyone who has read FCL knows, that's a big thick book which was published enough years ago that a fair bit of it had to focus on justifying meditation and mindfulness as a worthwhile endeavor. In Mindfulness for Beginners, JKZ assumes you know the value of bringing greater awareness into your life, allowing him to focus on inspiration and instructions.

The book is not presented like a conventional "Intro to Meditation" with a first you do step A and then B. Rather, there are many short entries, that introduce one to mindfulness in a gradual way with the understanding you will use the enclosed guided meditation CD. While initially slightly disoriented by this, when you think about it, this is a more real-life way to learn mindfulness techniques as life doesn't usually work in a Step A-Step B way--especially for something as encompassing as greater awareness (JKZ wisely emphasizes the importance of not restricting increased awareness to the meditation bench or cushion).

The greatest strength of the book is Jon Kabat-Zinn himself. I once had the great pleasure to talk to him one-on-one. Within a very short time he made me feel very comfortable and as though he had all the time in the world for me. Despite his renown as a meditation teacher and author, he was very down-to-earth. There was nothing of the aloof meditation teacher about him. That warm and realness comes through in this book. He never puts ideology ahead of effectiveness. This is why he is such a great teacher. Almost all of us can benefit from what he has to offer.
