In his follow-up to Full Catastrophe Living--a book in which he presented basic meditation techniques as a way of
reducing stress and healing from illness--here Jon Kabat-Zinn goes much more deeply into the practice of meditation for
its own sake. To Kabat-Zinn, meditation is important because it brings about a state of "mindfulness," a condition of
"being" rather than "doing" during which you pay attention to the moment rather than the past, the future, or the
multitudinous distractions of modern life. In brief, rather poetic chapters, he describes different meditative practices
and what they can do for the practitioner. The idea that meditation is "spiritual" is often confusing to people,
Kabat-Zinn writes; he prefers to think of it as what you might call a workout for your consciousness. This book makes
learning meditation remarkably easy (although practicing it is not). But it also makes it seem infinitely appealing.
