December 2013: Book of the Month

Jon Kabatzinn

No doubt, "Mindfulness" is everywhere today... but does it still elude you?

 

If so, we suggest you begin by reading Jon Kabat Zinn's Mindfulness for Beginners, our first ever Book of the Month featured on Imagine Reads.  

 

 A summary of the book reads:

 "We may long for wholeness, suggests Jon Kabat-Zinn, but the truth is that it is already here and already ours. The practice of mindfulness holds the possibility of not just a fleeting sense of contentment, but a true embracing of a deeper unity that envelops and permeates our lives. With Mindfulness for Beginners you are invited to learn how to transform your relationship to the way you think, feel, love, work, and play—and so awaken to and embody more completely who you really are." 

 

The prescription for living a more mindful life seems simple enough: return your awareness again and again to whatever is going on. 

 

Mindfulness for Beginners provides welcome answers, insights, and instruction to help us make that shift, moment by moment, into a more spacious, clear, reliable, and loving connection with ourselves and the world.

 

We love this book because we can begin to use these tools right here and right now in our daily lives!

 

For your convenience, Mindfulness for Beginners is available at SHOP PRACTICE.
