Since its initial publication FULL CATASTROPHE LIVING has given hundreds of thousands of people access to Dr. Kabat-Zinn's revolutionary approach in integrative medicine known as mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), which works to improve a person's response to stress, pain, and illness. Timed to coincide with the January publication of his new hardcover from Hyperion, Coming to Our Senses, this edition includes a new introduction that highlights recent developments on MBSR, as well as updated resources for those who seek the lasting effects of mindfulness practice. Integrating Buddhism and yoga with modern medicine, Kabat-Zinn's scientifically based program-created at the world-renowned Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center-helps to ease a range of psychological and physical symptoms, including anxiety, headaches, and back pain, and gives realistic guidance for anyone caring about their health, sanity, and well-being.

display_description The landmark work on mindfulness, meditation, and healing, now revised and updated after twenty-five years

Stress. It can sap our energy, undermine our health if we let it, even shorten our lives. It makes us more vulnerable to anxiety and depression, disconnection and disease. Based on Jon Kabat-Zinn's renowned mindfulness-based stress reduction program, this classic, groundbreaking work—which gave rise to a whole new field in medicine and psychology—shows you how to use medically proven mind-body approaches derived from meditation and yoga to counteract stress, establish greater balance of body and mind, and stimulate well-being and healing. By engaging in these mindfulness practices and integrating them into your life from moment to moment and from day to day, you can learn to manage chronic pain, promote optimal healing, reduce anxiety and feelings of panic, and improve the overall quality of your life, relationships, and social networks. This second edition features results from recent studies on the science of mindfulness, a new Introduction, up-to-date statistics, and an extensive updated reading list. Full Catastrophe Living is a book for the young and the old, the well and the ill, and anyone trying to live a healthier and saner life in our fast-paced world.
