MEDITATION IS NOT WHAT YOU THINK Mindfulness and Why It Is So Important

by | Read by Jon Kabat-Zinn

Personal Growth • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

An attitude of calm acceptance soothes listeners amid the author's enlightening explanation of what meditation is and is not. Author/narrator Kabat-Zinn gently sets aside the popular belief that meditation revolves around a state of being that is devoid of thoughts. With quiet encouragement, Kabat-Zinn reveals that meditation is simpler and more fluid than this and, therefore, less intimidating. The meditation practice is about awareness of mind and emotions, not necessarily the content of these thoughts and emotions. Earnestly, Kabat-Zinn explains how achieving and sustaining a sense of presence and wakefulness in spite of life's endless preoccupations and obligations and occasions for distraction restore one's mind, body, soul, and spirit. Kabat-Zinn's calm voice and gentle tone persuasively attest to the benefits of a meditation practice. M.F. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2018]
