"In his follow-up to Full Catastrophe Living--a book in which he presented basic meditation techniques as a way of reducing stress and healing from illness--here Jon Kabat-Zinn goes much more deeply into the practice of meditation for its own sake."--Amazon.com. "In this book, Jon Kabat-Zinn maps out a simple path for cultivating mindfulness in one's own life. It speaks to both those coming to meditation for the first time and to longtime practitioners, anyone who cares deeply about reclaiming the richness of his or her moments."--Publisher's description.
