I have listened to some of Jon's work in the past, this is an excellent addition to those prior teachings.
I appreciate his keep-it-simple approach, down-to-earth honesty, his gentle humor and tone of voice, getting to hear the raisin meditation and also the walking meditations were both new to me.
I love that he is balanced in his approach, he focuses on paying attention and that there is nothing particularly mystical or magical in that. Paying attention on purpose, voluntarily attending to the present moment and doing so non-judgmentally really spoke to me.
I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and the question/answer session at the end. I knew Jon does work in hospitals but did not know about his work in prisons. I was delightfully inspired learning about Jon's past too as an added bonus. It's neat to hear a spiritual teacher talking about their upbringing.
I highly recommend this set and appreciate learning how to handle the storms as well as reach deep relaxation. Namaste.
Worth listening to as Jon Kabat-Zinn is an excellent, engaging speaker! I like his positive energy, his passion for meditation and the ease in which he puts this across. It feels like this audio book is in ‘real time’ as it’s a live recording. You can meditate with him as he takes you through actual meditation sessions. Whether you’re a beginner or more advanced in meditation (I have been practising on/off for almost 20 years), I think you’ll find something positive to take away from this programme. Jon successfully highlights things like the importance of meditation being a personal process although you can also choose to meditate in the same space as others. Through his talk, I was reminded to feel my experiences and pay attention on purpose in the present moment without judgement (being mindful). I like that he explains different practices of meditation. There is real depth to this programme; you’re going to want to listen to it more than once!
Very clear recording, though i couldn't follow the practice instructions in the beginning. One clear distinction I got is healing and curing. There's a difference and Jon Kabat Zinn explain it well. I like his clarity and authencity in answering the questions. Thank you.
good quality tapes, good Jon Kabat Zinn, thank you.
so far it's good.....he's a bright man, a good presenter.
