Publisher's Synopsis

Dr. Kabat-Zinn has taught this two-thousand-year-old Buddhist method of relaxation to thousands of patients in his Stress Reduction Program at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center.

Through mindfulness, one makes every moment count. By "capturing" the present and living fully within each moment as it happens, one can reduce anxiety, achieve inner peace, and enrich the quality of life.

"Rather than withdrawing from the world, meditation can help you enjoy it more fully, more effectively, and more peacefully. In Wherever You Go, There You Are, Jon Kabat-Zinn provides access to the essense of meditation and its applications for both the beginner and those who wish to deepen and expand their practice. He embodies what he describes."      ~Dean Ornish, M.D.

"This book shines with an exquisite simplicity and straightforwardness. Jon Kabat-Zinn is one of the best teachers of mindfulness you will ever meet."           ~Jack Kornfield, A Path with Heart

"When we speak of meditation, it is important for you to know that this is not some weird cryptic activity, as our popular culture might have it. It does not involve becoming some kind of zombie, vegetable, self-absorbed narcissist, navel gazer, 'space cadet,' cultist, devotee, mystic, or Eastern philosopher.

Meditation is simply about being yourself and knowing something about who that is. It is about coming to realize that you are on a path whether you like it or not, namely, the path that is your life. Meditation may help us see that this path we call our life has direction; that it is always unfolding, moment by moment; and that what happens now, in this moment, influences what happens next."

"You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf."

JON KABAT-ZINN, PhD, is founding Executive Director of the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. He is also the founding director of its renowned Stress Reduction Clinic and Professor of Medicine emeritus at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.
