by: Jon Kabat-Zinn

Full Catastrophe Living is based on Jon Kabat-Zinn's highly acclaimed stress reduction programme at the University of Massachusetts Medical Centre, where he uses mindfulness, a form of meditation, to help thousands of people cope with stress, anxiety, pain and illness. This book will do far more than just enable you to handle stress and pain, though. It provides easy-to-follow meditation techniques, a detailed eight-week practice schedule, dozens of success stories, plus the latest research findings that will enable you to end your slavery to the thinking mind, and find a way of living that is more conscious, more spacious and more present, in every moment of the day. That way, what ever your problems, be they medical symptoms, physical or emotional pain, time pressures, or relationships, you will gain access to a space where peace and freedom are always there for you.
