Lesson 8 from Jon Kabat-Zinn's "Letting Everything Become Your Teacher"

Cover-JKZ-LettingEverythingBeYourTeacherWe are delighted to share the brief yet profound lessons from Jon Kabat-Zinn's delightful book Letting Everything Become Your Teacher: 100 Lessons in Mindfulness.  Today's lesson is on "whole being".

LESSON 8  - Whole Being

To cultivate the healing power of mindfulness requires much more than mechanically following a recipe or a set of  instructions. No real process of learning is like that. It is only when the mind is open and receptive that learning and seeing and change can occur. In practicing mindfulness you will have to bring your whole being to the process.
