I very much like this program but it would be helpful to have a pdf of the outline of the contents - the audio download gives a lot of numbered files which makes it difficult to find particular sections referred to by the speakers.

It's good. And the meditations are simple, short and convenient to fit in a busy day.

This is an excellent presentation, covering more than depression.
The content is valuable, and the speaker's voice is very pleasant. Thank you for this very nice CD set.

This is a great CD. A thorough discussion of the causes of depression, followed by some introductory meditations, led by Dr. Kabat-Zinn. A wonderful introduction to meditation in addition to the discussion of depression.

This program is excellent in explaining Vipassana and Buddhist practices to people, without mentioning either vipassana or buddhism which does turn some people off. It puts forward these principles in more "scientific" terms which I feel will be more acceptable to a lot of people. The explanations are very good and I will be recommending this program to many friends and family.

I listen to these CD's several times a week and the information I have learned has really helped me with my depression. I am making some small changes everyday and its really working. I would highly recommend it.

For anyone suffering depression or anxiety, this program is a god send. It shows how mindfulness practices can help you emerge from the darkness and rediscover your healthier, truer self. What I really like is the way it creates a conceptual context within which to understand how mindfulness can transform mental afflictions. This is a brilliant program.

Have been on vacation and also had grandchildren here for a week so haven't truly undertaken the program but have listened to the first CD and am re-listening to it. Have started the second, also, and have taken the body scan (amazing!) and the first standing yoga one. I am impressed so far but need to have more time with it. My therapist (who recommended the CD series) is also helping me with using the techniques in my particular circumstances. I am hoping this will truly teach me how to live with my brain. I've learned so much already from listening to the first CD's.

I am a Vietnam combat infantry veteran (draftee). I'm diagnosed by VA with PTSD. Shortly after VA psychological malpractice triggered a suicide attempt, I found this in book format. This book literally kept me alive & started me on the path of practicing mindfulness meditation that has made miraculous changes in my life. Indespensable for those suffering from depression. I know of nothing better out there.

Kabat-Zinn's guided meditations here are highly apropos and very useful. They are the best part of
this course of self-treatment; that is
my attitude and approach. The intellectual stuff, the narration tracks, have provided numerous insights and realizations for me, but I don't listen to them over and over, as I do with practicing of the meditations. fwiw, I am sleeping a tad better these days.
Too early to tell if my blood pressure will come down from the lofty heights. The course has
been helpful to me. Your mileage may vary.

What do you say about a book that has, simply put, changed my life? If you don't understand depression, buy this book. if you're a prisoner of depression, buy this book. if you love someone that is depressed, buy this book. just buy it and read/listen to it. in the first hour of the audiobook, you will learn 10 things that will make a difference in your day to day struggles with depression. too many great things to list them all.

I have found Happiness.
However the book mentions a "Practice Guided Section" I have not found yet,Can anyone tell me how to find it.

There have been spots on this DVD where there appears to be a defect as the sound gets choppy for a bit and then it gets ok again while someone is talking.

The material is this program is not new for anyone who has learned about mindfulness before, but the authors do a good job of presenting mindful practice in the context of depression. Sometimes seemed a bit wordy and repetitive and I found it hard to keep focused, but the speaker is empathetic and gentle in guiding the listener. This may not be a complete 'solution' to serious ('clinical') depression, but overall I found it very useful and well done.

Was VERY skeptical at the beginning since I did not know prsenters. Thought the First sections on Anatomy of Depression and cultiving mindfulness are GREAT. have not tried the guided meditation techniques yet.
Will write a second review once I try that part. The comments about Self Critical Commentary is EXCELLENT.

The title of this book clearly states who should select this book, folks who consider themselves depressed; preferably ones similar to who the authors studied (at least three clinical depression episodes under their belts according to the introduction). Even though a dysthymia (i.e. chronic low-grade depression) patient was one of the two examples of depressed people in the introduction, I felt that the authors were focused on communicating with people who had spent years trying every other option and, now that they were desperate, were looking into mindfulness. This is too bad because I agree with the authors that their work of applying mindfulness would be fruitful for folks with less depressive history.

I too could not find the mindful guided meditations. Is that something that needs to be purchased separately?
