Jon Kabat-Zinn, author of the widely praised Wherever You Go, There You Are shows how the power of mindfulness can bring profound changes to your personal life. As stress continues to exact a toll on everyday life, we are increasingly turning to ancient, meditative methods, which have been tested by science, to reduce stress and become more focused and healthy in our everyday lives. Jon Kabat-Zinn has been for decades at the forefront of the mind/body movement and the subsequent revolution in medicine and health care, both demystifying it and bringing it into the mainstream. In Coming To Our Senses, he shares his belief that every human has the capacity to mobilize deep, innate resources for continual learning, growing, healing and transformation through mindfulness. Woven into eight parts, Coming To Our Senses: Uses anecdotes and stories from Kabat-Zinn's own life experiences and work to illustrate the realm of healing possibilities: Offers a remarkable insight into how to use the five senses - touch, hearing, sight, taste, and smell - as a path to a healthier, saner, and more meaningful life.--This text refers to the Paperback edition.
