This mp3 collection of programs from Jon Kabat-Zinn is comprised of a complete set of his seminal works that constitute the core practice curriculum of mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) in the Stress Reduction Clinic.
Bundled together for the first time, you can now purchase Series I, II and III at a great value.
In addition, this bundle includes, as a bonus, unlimited access to the audio and video version of the program Stress Reduction.
They are meant to be used in conjunction with Dr. Kabat-Zinn's book, Full Catastrophe Living: Using the Wisdom of Your Body and Mind to Face Stress, Pain and Illness. You will find extensive descriptions of these practices in this book, as well as pictures of the mindful hatha yoga sequences. Thousands of people have used these programs either alone or in conjunction with the book to develop and sustain a meditation practice based on mindfulness, and to benefit from its stress reducing, healing, and transformational potential when practiced regularly.
The Body Scan meditation alone was worth the price. I've used the MP3s every morning and every night. I am very happy I bought the tapes while reading Full Catastrophe Living and I recommend to anyone thinking about purchasing the tapes to go ahead and buy them. I'd also say to do as the book suggests and use them while reading the book and commit to it for at least 8 weeks. If you don't want to pay for the complete set then for sure buy Series 1. Twenty dollars is more than worth it for that Body Scan technique. To anyone reading this I hope you have a wonderful day and thank you for taking the time to read my review, good luck on your mindfulness journey!
I teach mindfulness meditation and often use JKZ meditations with my classes as well as using them in my own practice.
Can’t recommend these recordings enough. John Kabat-Zinn does a tremendous job with guided meditation, and these accompany his enlightening books beautifully.
