Course objectives:

  • Explain how mindfulness practice can help with pain management
  • Utilize meditation practices that emphasize focus on the breath and body sensations
  • Describe how to turn toward the experience of pain
  • Summarize Kabat-Zinn's seven principles to his mindfulness approach
  • Identify the differences between thoughts and pain sensations, and between coping strategies that contribute to suffering and those that can alleviate it

If you're reading this, chances are that your life, or the life of someone you know, is shaped by pain—and by the physical and emotional suffering that usually accompany it.

  • Mindfulness of breathing—how to “put out the welcome mat” for whatever arises in one's experience
  • What to do about pain—how to work with intense and unwanted sensations
  • Working with thoughts and emotions—how to avoid identifying with your experience of pain and instead see sensations and thoughts as sensations and thoughts
  • Resting in awareness—a three-minute mindful pause to restore balance, resilience, and self-compassion
  • Mindfulness in everyday life—allowing the nitty-gritty of one's daily life to be both the ultimate meditation teacher and the real meditation practice

The good news: Jon Kabat-Zinn and his colleagues have helped thousands of people learn to use the power of mindfulness to transform their relationship to pain and suffering, and to discover new degrees of freedom for living with greater ease and quality of life. Now, with Mindfulness Meditation for Pain Relief, the man who brought mindfulness into mainstream medicine presents these approaches for working gently and effectively with even the most trying of circumstances.

Session one gives us an overview of seven fundamental attitudes we can develop and deploy to cultivate mindfulness in relationship to chronic pain and its incessant challenges. On session two, Jon Kabat-Zinn leads us in guided meditations drawn from his pioneering Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) methodology:

“Through the systematic cultivation of mindfulness, we can reclaim the entire spectrum of our experience and the joys inherent in living,” explains Jon Kabat-Zinn. Mindfulness Meditation for Pain Relief offers us a precious and tested vehicle for embracing the “full catastrophe” of the human condition and thriving in the face of it.

Review for Mindfulness Meditation for Pain Relief Review by Bob Z

I bought "Mindfulness Meditation for Pain Relief" as a present for a student of mine with sickle cell anemia. His symptoms include severe pain.

When I asked him how he liked the CD, his whole face brightened up and he said, "It was so cool! I loved listening to the guy's voice. He actually helped me make some of the pain go away."

He is listening to Mr. Kabat-Zinn's CD almost every day now. And I'm certain it's having a positive effect.

Jon Kabat-Zinn is that rare teacher who gives and gives and gives without craving any acknowledgement for himself. So let me give him a bit right now: you've helped one young man assuage his constant pain. It's working! Thank you! (Posted on August 23, 2014)

Review for Mindfulness Meditation for Pain Relief Review by Linda P H

This helped me through testing and at least two rounds of chemo. Good stuff if you just realize it's not "magic," it's your own body. I connected it to my own Christianity, which makes it more effective for me. But I suspect it's still very effective if you are not a spiritual person. (Posted on August 13, 2014)

Review for Mindfulness Meditation for Pain Relief Review by Ross F

Rating

I have have experienced progressively severe pain for 45 years. Traditional medical approaches - medication & physical therapy - have helped the body in a limited fashion, but not the soul.
Jon Kabat-Zinn's Mindfulness Meditation for Pain Relief audio has been of great benefit to me over the past three years both physically and emotionally. I would recommend it to anyone who has episodic or chronic pain. It would be helpful to have some exposure to mindfulness meditation before progressing to this program. (Posted on May 26, 2014)

I just started using this 2 CD program and I think it is wonderful. I have to deal with pain on a daily basis and this gives me strategies and most importantly, hope that I can manage my pain better. The presentation is excellent. (Posted on April 24, 2014)

Was hoping for helpful suggestions on pain management. The CD's did not deliver. Once again, it felt like a pieced-together compilation of talks by JKZ. Very disappointing. (Posted on April 9, 2014)
