Full Catastrophe Living: Using the Wisdom of Your Body and Mind to Face Stress, Pain, and Illness

Kabat-Zinn, Jon (1990). Full Catastrophe Living: Using the Wisdom of Your Body and Mind to Face Stress, Pain, and Illness. Dell.

This book is considered true breakthrough in the area of mindfulness meditation as a psychological intervention that has proven over the years as an effective method to enhance wellbeing – both physical and psychological, and reduce distress and pain. Over the years, the book has established itself as a beginner’s guide to meditation and as the bible for a mind/body movement that has transformed Western medicine,by coverging it with Buddhist thinking. This step-by-step  guide to mindfulness meditation is based on a eight-week theraputic programme for stress reduction developed by the author  (MBSR),  at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, Boston.

 Enjoy!
