Synopsis:
Now in paperback, the guide to living a meaningful life from the world stress expert

"[The] journey toward health and sanity is nothing less than an invitation to wake up to the fullness of our lives as if they actually mattered . . ." --Jon Kabat-Zinn, from the Introduction

Ten years ago, Jon Kabat-Zinn changed the way we thought about awareness in everyday life with his now-classic introduction to mindfulness, Wherever You Go, There You Are. Now, with Coming to Our Senses, he provides the definitive book for our time on the connection between mindfulness and our physical and spiritual wellbeing. With scientific rigor, poetic deftness, and compelling personal stories, Jon Kabat-Zinn examines the mysteries and marvels of our minds and bodies, describing simple, intuitive ways in which we can come to a deeper understanding, through our senses, of our beauty, our genius, and our life path in a complicated, fear-driven, and rapidly changing world.

In each of the book's eight parts, Jon Kabat-Zinn explores another facet of the great adventure of healing ourselves--and our world--through mindful awareness, with a focus on the "sensescapes" of our lives and how a more intentional awareness of the senses, including the human mind itself, allows us to live more fully and more authentically. By "coming to our senses"--both literally and metaphorically by opening to our innate connectedness with the world around us and within us--we can become more compassionate, more embodied, more aware human beings, and in the process, contribute to the healing of the body politic as well as our own lives in ways both little and big.

Book Description: Hyperion. 1 Paperback(s), 2005. soft. Book Condition: New. In this follow-up to Wherever You Go, There You Are, his widely praised treatise on mindful awareness, Jon Kabat-Zinn continues to demystify the mind/body connections being explored in modern medicine for healing and relieving stress. In Coming to Our Senses, he describes how every human has the capacity to harness their own innate power of mindfulness for continual learning, growing, and transformation, effecting profound change in our personal lives and in the world around us. Kabat-Zinn uses anecdotes and stories from his own life experiences and work in his clinic to illustrate healing possibilities. He offers insight into how to use touch, hearing, sight, taste, and smell, plus awareness itself as a path to a healthier, saner, and more meaningful life. "'For any of us, perhaps our greatest potential regret may be that of not seizing the moment and honoring it for what it is when it is here,' writes bestselling author Kabat-Zinn. The scientist who pioneered the use of the Buddhist technique of mindfulness (or moment-by-moment awareness) to help patients cope with the stress and pain of illness arrived at this poignant lesson after seeing the way his father, an eminent immunologist who suffered from Alzheimer's disease, lost all sense of who he was and what was happening to him. Kabat-Zinn illuminates the many facets of this selfless way of being, not just with Buddhist understanding and verse but with quotes from Einstein ('A human being is a part of the whole, called by us "Universe"'), Dickinson, Rilke and many other Western greats. Ardent, personal, frankly opinionated in places, this book seeks to wake up as individuals and as a culture. It is a treasure trove of contemporary wisdom."—Publishers Weekly (starred review) 631.
