Course objectives:

  • Apply an understanding of the concept of mindfulness
  • Utilize simple guided meditations led by Kabat-Zinn
  • List the ethical and attitudinal foundations necessary to cultivating mindfulness
  • Assess how we can choose where to focus our awareness
  • Plan to use mindfulness to help us develop compassion and insight into our true nature

What if you could profoundly change your life just by becoming more mindful of your breathing? According to Jon Kabat-Zinn, you can. What if paying attention on purpose (and nonjudgmentally) could improve your health? Again, according to Dr. Kabat-Zinn—it can.

On Mindfulness for Beginners, this internationally known scientist, bestselling author, and teacher who brought mindfulness meditation into the mainstream of medicine and society gives you immediate access to a practice that can potentially add years to your life, and will certainly enhance the quality of your moments and your years.

Join Dr. Kabat-Zinn to:

  • Explore five guided meditations that lead you breath-by-breath into the essence of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), a program offered in medical clinics and hospitals around the world
  • Cultivate the Seven Key Attitudinal Factors of MBSR—qualities of heart and mind that lay the foundation for mindfulness practice and for seeing and accepting things as they are as a first step to working wisely and compassionately with stress, pain, illness, and sorrow as well as life's joys and pleasures
  • Free yourself from limiting perspectives, and become more intimate with your own boundless awareness

You're already in the perfect moment for inhabiting this liberating awareness, which is always available, teaches Jon Kabat-Zinn. With Mindfulness for Beginners, he invites you to cultivate mindfulness as if your life depended on it, which it surely does, and experience the magnitude and beauty of who you already are.

Jon Kabat-Zinn was the first author I listened to to learn mindful meditation. I find his voice soothing. I have purchased many copies to hand out to friends and students who need to learn this healthy skill.

Fantastic stuff, really! Having gone back to it after a year or two though, it would be really handy if the tracks had meaningful titles... "Mindfulness for Beginners - 02pt2" doesn't help when I'm looking for that particular meditation. This comment applies to all the downloads from soundstrue - meaningful track names, PLEASE!

Do yourself a favor and get this! Start Here! Especially if you battle depression/fear/anxiety...
Just the first Chapter/Introduction feels like somebody has handed you the right compass pointing in the right direction! It just rings true and makes sense, we sabotage ourselves most of the time and don't even realize it. Wish I had found this gem a long time ago. Felt inspired to get up and get back into Living - even before any of the meditations! Would love to have this playing on repeat in my head all of the time!

It has been a monumental, life-changing exploration of mindfulness practise that began two years ago with this, articulately written and spoken word by Jon Kabat-Zinn. His grasp of the subject is truly incredible because he lives and breathes mindfulness every moment of his life and it shows. Thank you Jon for setting me on a path to a much greater sense of well-being and contentment on this, my journey of a lifetime.

I'm using this for a meditation group. We find it very useful, but Jon K-Z often slurs his words and drops his voice to a very soft pitch. Sounds lovely for one person, but for a group of people who are elderly, it's hard to hear, even when I turn up the volume and use my Bose speaker. That said, we are finding it very useful.

This CD was helpful to me in understanding some important concepts about mindfulness, particularly the importance of cultivating the practice from a place of non-judgment and compassion. I would have preferred a little less talking during the meditations, but I did find them helpful and they progressed nicely to help me experience an expanded field of awareness. Overall, I feel the program included many practical suggestions and concepts about mindfulness that I have been able to apply with successful results in my daily life.

Ordered as a gift for someone who's never meditated before and I've yet to get her report on it, but I listened to it myself and, like everything from JKZ, it was fantastic. Highly recommended.

The content here is top notch, but there is one really frustrating problem with the download version. There are no chapter marks, so if you're an ipod meditator, there's no easy way to skip to a particular meditation. Maybe when I'm more mindful, this won't bug me so much. ;)

This is a wonderful guided practice for stressed out people who need to learn a different way to interact with the stressful events in their lives. Since it is not spiritually oriented, it is great for anyone wanting to learn to meditate in a way that they can take into everyday life without taking up a whole spiritual practice. As a holistic nutrition consultant, It is the main meditation teaching I recommend to my clients who are healing from the physiological effects of stress.
