How present are you right now? Are you really here? Or is your mind off somewhere else, caught up in thinking and emotions, the past and the future, without being fully aware of that fact? It is all too easy to live focused on the next item on our never-ending to-do lists, hoping to get it checked off and feel good for however long that feeling will last. But when, if ever, do we allow ourselves to simply drop into the present moment as it is—to practice residing in awareness, in the domain of being, or if you will, in the domain of “non-doing”? This rotation in consciousness can catalyze an entirely different way of being and acting in the world.

The miracle of mindfulness is that it reconnects us to the inherent richness of life inwardly and outwardly—a richness of embodied wakefulness and possibilities that can only be found and inhabited in this timeless moment we call “now.”

Join Jon Kabat-Zinn as your instructor in the Opening to Our Lives online training course. During the course’s eight sessions, he’ll guide you in establishing new ways of being in wise and nurturing relationship to your own life—in the stressful and difficult times, as well as in the pleasant and gratifying moments. 

The cultivation of moment-to-moment, nonjudgmental awareness (or mindfulness) can help you befriend every aspect of your life, including those that are most difficult, most painful, and most unwanted. The Opening to Our Lives online course provides an essential set of training skills from a master teacher that will form a friendly and reliable foundation for a lifetime of practice. The invitation is to live the life that is yours to live, in alignment with your deepest principles and values.

When you register for the Opening to Our Lives online training program, you get lifetime access to the complete curriculum, plus you’ll receive guided practices, course materials, and three bonus teaching programs.

Review of Opening to Our Lives

It's been very helpful. I mostly listen to the body scan first thing on waking and last thing at night. My mind wanders a lot so I know I need the practise and it's my work to return to the body scan.

Opening to our lives

I have gained a deeper practice of mindfulness, meditation, and breathing in Jon Kabot-Zinn,s course. It will be a practice I will continue. His information, explanations and direction was easy to understand and follow. I supplemented with the books he suggested and journaled throughout the program.

I did have difficulty with accessing the program on line and eventually needed help from Sounds True. With the exception of session 3, I was unable to access any of the recordings. They never played. I could not follow along on the meditation portion of the first session as a result. I meditated on my own and I read the transcript afterwards. I read the transcription of the recordings in the rest of the sessions also. I was able to access the videos.

Opening To Our Lives

I have gained insight to my spiritual needs and growth in the practice of mindfulness. I enjoyed this program by Jon Cabot Zinn. He was the first author I read on the topic and it is straight forward, useful, and helpful.

At first I had difficulty with accessing the program. With the help of Sounds True Customer Service it was remedied quickly.

I appreciated being able to pay in increments.

Opening to Our Lives: Jon Kabat Zinn

Jon is a master meditator. I really respect him.

That said, I feel like some meditation is taught with restrictive standards. You must sit this way and your knees must be down and spine erect... etc. This can be helpful but I find it off putting as well. I think people need the space and freedom to approach meditation with their own style. I do appreciate his deep knowledge but I am modifying some of his recommendations.

Thank you!

Very inspiring & helpful

I’m half way through this program & am finding it very helpful. I’ve been meditating on and off for over 40 years & I’ve still a lot to learn. I’m also reading ‘Wherever you got here you are’ in conjunction with the program.
