This is a really great book by Jon Kabat Zinn. It teaches people how to relieve stress and how to use mindfulness meditations to improve your quality of life.

A comprehensive introduction to the mindfullness-based stress reduction, which is used to help people cope with stress, anxiety, pain and illness. This book can be used in tandem with the "Guided Mindfulness Meditation" CDs to develop one's own eight week mindfullness program.

Really liked this book. I took a course on Mindfulness with my family doctor & she used this book for the course. Lots of useful information on how the practise of Mindfulness can reduce stress & illness.

"I keep coming back to one line from the movie of Nikos Kazantzakis's novel Zorba the Greek. Zorba's young companion turns to him at a certain point and inquires, 'Zorba, have you ever been married?' to which Zorba replies (paraphrasing somewhat) 'Am I not a man? Of course I've been married. Wife, house, kids, everything . . . the full catastrophe!'

"It was not meant to be a lament, nor does it mean that being married or having children is a catastrophe. Zorba's response embodies a supreme appreciation for the richness of life and the inevitability of all its dilemmas, sorrows, tragedies and ironies. His way is to 'dance' in the gale of the full catastrophe, to celebrate life, to laugh with it and at himself, even in the face of personal failure and defeat. In doing so, he is never weighed down for long, never ultimately defeated either by the world or by his own considerable folly. "
