Description: - In the fifteen years since its initial publication, Full Catastrophe Living has sold over 400,000 copies worldwide. It has established itself both as an excellent beginner's guide to meditation and as the bible for a mind/body movement that has transformed Western medicine. This practical, step-by-step meditation guide is based on a revolutionary eight-week programme called mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), which stress-relief and meditation expert Jon Kabat-Zinn created at the world-renowned Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, Boston. This fifteenth anniversary edition includes a new introduction along with an expanded bibliography and resources section.
