About Mindfulness for Beginners CD by Jon Kabat-Zinn
Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn is an internationally recognised scientist, author and teacher of mindfulness, who created mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR). Mindfulness for Beginners is an audio CD exploring five guided meditations to help you with MBSR. MBSR is an 8 week programme used in a multitude of hospitals to help you with coping and is recommended by many including Cancer Research UK.
Kabat-Zinn's calm, kind presence guides you gently into meditation, starting with the body, and moving through more subtle levels such as feelings, breath, sounds and thoughts. It is the best guide to meditation I have come across, written or CD, and I think it is suitable for anyone at any level. It is especially good for the busy Western mind, as it grounds awareness first in the body, creating a solid base and then working up to thoughts. I am using it to aid recovery from chronic fatigue, and within days of practising am finding myself calmer and more grounded. This man knows what he is doing!
