Kabat-Zinn, founder of the Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, is perhaps the best-known proponent of using meditation to help patients deal with illness. (The somewhat confusing title is from a line in Zorba the Greek in which the title character refers to the ups and downs of family life as "the full catastrophe.") But this book is also a terrific introduction for anyone who has considered meditating but was afraid it would be too difficult or would include religious practices they found foreign. Kabat-Zinn focuses on "mindfulness," a concept that involves living in the moment, paying attention, and simply "being" rather than "doing." While you can practice anything "mindfully," from taking a walk to cleaning your house, Kabat-Zinn presents several meditation techniques that focus the attention most clearly, whether it's on a simple phrase, your breathing, or various parts of your body. The book goes into detail about how hospital patients have either improved their health or simply come to feel better despite their illness by using these techniques, but these meditations can help anyone deal with stress and gain a calmer outlook on life. "When we use the word healing to describe the experiences of people in the stress clinic, what we mean above all is that they are undergoing a profound transformation of view," Kabat-Zinn writes. "Out of this shift in perspective comes an ability to act with greater balance and inner security in the world." --Ben Kallen -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.

Grounded in scientific research, Jon Kabat-Zinn explores the connections between mind and body to the point where there is no longer any obvious division between the two. This book offers the reader access to a new way of living that is rooted in mindfulness. The instructions offered are easy to understand. This book is primarily intended for those facing chronic or terminal illness or emotional pain, but it can really benefit a far more general audience - those who want to live their lives more fully.
If you have a problem, may it be of physical or psychological nature, pain, illnes, stress, whatever - read this book. It certainly won't cure your problem, but it surely will teach you how to cope with it. Using regularly the simple excercises, whatching your reactions, thoughts, will gradually change the way you see yourself and your life - with all the good and bad that goes with it.
Written by a medical doctor, this book is based on firm scientifical evidences, if you are after new age esotheric miracles, you will have to look elsewhere.
The most important I have learned from it is: how you cope with your problems, depends basically on the way you percieve them. This book shows you how you can change the way you see your problems, and how you can work with them. Needless to say, problem solving is your job, but you are given powerful tools to use, you do not feel helpless anymore.
You can order a four CD set, that pases perfectly to the book. The CDs contain each a 45 minutes guided meditation, yoga excercises, sitting meditation and body scan meditation. They proved very useful to me.
