"Rarely does a book speak so eloquently to those of us who struggle with illness in our own lives, as well as to those who join with us in the project of healing. In sharing his involvement in the lives of patients and his own personal journey of mindfulness, Saki Santorelli gives us startling insights into what it means to heal and be healed. This book is a gift that will change your life."
-- S. Kay Toombs, Ph.D., author of The Meaning of Illness
"Saki evokes for us the mutuality of the healing relationship and reclaims for medicine and all who work within it the wisdom and power of its lineage."
-- Rachel Naomi Remen, M.D."
From the Inside Flap
Today we are experiencing extraordinary technological advances in the diagnosis and treatment of illness while at the same time learning to take more responsibility for our own health and well-being. In this book, Saki Santorelli, director of the nationally acclaimed Stress Reduction Clinic, explores the ancient roots of medicine, and shows us how to introduce mindfulness into the crucible of the healing relationship. His approach revolutionizes the dynamics between the patient and the practitioner. In describing the classes at the clinic and the transformation that takes place in this alchemical process, he offers insights and effective methods for cultivating mindfulness in our everyday lives. As he reveals the inner landscape of his own life as a health care professional and we join him and those with whom he works on this journey of human suffering and courage, we become aware of and honor what is darkest and brightest within each one of us.See all Product Description

He weaves in his own mindfulness experiences as they play out in his own life, specifically around his relationships with participants in the eight week mindfulness programme, and this is the fundamental message of his book: there is no difference between doctor and patient, teacher and student, we all learn and develop in that healing relationship when we commit to honesty and deep exploration.
At its core is the gentle acceptance of all that arises for all members of the programme, for the entire human experience, all of us moving between strength and vulnerability, ignorance and wisdom, struggle and grace. We "meet" many participants on the programme, those that leave, those with addictions, illnesses, pain and share with them painful, stuck places and moments of clarity and healing.
It is really a narrative of mindfulness in action and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Very good and engaging book.
A little bit of an alternative medicine jargon used, which should be evident from the title. Read more
