Guided Mindfulness Meditation Series 1: A Complete Guided Mindfulness Meditation Program from Jon Kabat-Zinn

Perhaps no other person has done more to bring mindfulness meditation into the contemporary landscape of America than Jon Kabat-Zinn. Through a number of research studies, and through Kabat-Zinn's pioneering work at the University of Massachusetts Medical School where he is founder of its world-renowned Stress Reduction Clinic, mindfulness is finally being recognized as a highly effective tool for dealing with stress, chronic pain, and other illnesses.

Now with this four-part home training course, Jon Kabat-Zinn offers listeners the definitive mindfulness meditation practice on CD. We are not trying to actively achieve a state of deep relaxation—or any other state for that matter—while practicing mindfulness, he teaches. But interestingly, by opening to an awareness of how things actually are in the present moment, we often taste very deep states of relaxation and well-being of both body and mind.

Join the bestselling author of Coming to Our Senses (Hyperion, 2005) and Wherever You Go, There You Are (Hyperion 1995) to develop and deepen your personal mindfulness practice, and to taste the universal aspects of stillness, clarity, wisdom, compassion, and well-being that Guided Mindfulness Meditation offers.

Course objectives:

  • Utilize body and mind meditations in daily practice
  • Practice mindful yoga with clear, safe and simple instructions
  • Describe the basic state of being which is present awareness
  • Compare the results of unmoving, sitting meditation to a movement meditation such as mindful yoga

Guided Mindfulness Meditation Series 2

Guided Mindfulness Meditation Series 2 was designed by Jon Kabat–Zinn as a core training tool to begin and deepen a daily meditation practice, and to bring mindfulness into every aspect of life. Intended to be used in conjunction with his book Wherever You Go, There You Are, these four CD–length programs are a valuable resource that meditators at all experience levels can adapt to their specific needs. They include:

  • Guided sitting meditations—the basics of mindfulness meditation
  • Mindfulness while lying down—guided sessions for learning how to "fall awake" rather than fall asleep, which, teaches Kabat–Zinn, is what mindfulness is all about
  • The Mountain Meditation and Lake Meditation—evokes two powerful images to deepen concentration and expand one's feeling for the inward gesture involved in mindfulness practice
  • Silence, with bells to mark the passage of time—5–, 10–, 15–, 20–, and 30–minute timed sessions

Mindfulness is moment–to–moment non–judgmental awareness, a way to connect with a deep sense of comfort, balance, insight, and freedom within our own lives, both physically and emotionally. It is a way to embody sanity, clarity, and harmony, even in challenging circumstances. And it's a way to heal ourselves and our relationships with others. But it does require cultivation. These guided meditations provide an essential set of tools to help support that process.
