Guided Mindfulness Meditation Reviews

    These are the four audio-cds that go along with "Full Catastrophe Living." Both are by the author Jon Kabat-Zinn. The only things that some may find problematic are Kabat-Zinn's vocal/speech mannerisms (a bit of nasal twang and a tendency to breath after only a few words) but once you get used to his sound, it really becomes a non-issue. Another downside is that each CD is a 45-min. session, and not everyone has that amount of time to devote to meditation and/or yoga each day. But I'll tell you, if you even do a little of it, it really helps.

    I really liked this audio since it's relaxing. I like the full body scan and it makes you feel refreshed. I wish I could find more visulazation type CD's though.

    Un guide simple mais puissant qui résume merveilleusement les principes du mindfulness (pleine conscience). J'aime la simplicité et la démonstration de la puissance de la méditation laïque telles que l'enseigne Jon Kabat-Zinn. Ce livre (et le CD mp3 qui l'accompagne) est une très belle introduction à cet univers extraordinaire mais encore mal connu qu'est la pleine conscience

    I listened to part of the second in this series. While I like to read Kabat-Zinn, I find his nasal voice very annoying. Cannot use it for guided meditation myself. Others might not mind.

    Ich glaube nicht an Globuli. Ich glaube auch nicht an Bach-Blüten oder ähnlichen extrem-esoterischen Mist. Tut mir Leid, wenn ich das so sage - aber mich nervt die Vorstellung, dass Menschen die notwendige medizinische Versorgung zu Gunsten von Zuckerperlen und Pseudotinkturen vernachlässigen.Auch die "Achtsamkeit" habe ich als durchaus diesen Sphären nahe empfunden. Und deshalb lange ignoriert. Der Begriff selbst macht mich auch jetzt, wo ich mit Kabat-Zinns "Gesund durch Meditation" in diese Gefilde eingetaucht bin, nicht glücklich. Er klingt mir zu weich. Egal? Egal.Die positiven Effekte der Medition sind schon seit langem bekannt. Nicht zuletzt durch Kabat-Zinn, der wohl den Startschuss dazu gegeben hat sie weitgehend von religiösen Elementen zu befreien. Dabei denke ich nicht nur an den Buddhismus, sondern auch an abrahamitische Gebete - schließlich sind auch sie Formen von Meditation, selbst wenn sie nicht als solche wahrgenommen werden.Obwohl diese Feststellung selbst auch in "Gesund durch Meditation" noch einmal gemacht wurde, stellt das alles eher ein Randthema dar. Eigentlich geht es um die praktische Seite der Meditation und um Argumente dafür sie für sich zu entdecken. Und das gelingt tatsächlich.Ohne ins Esoterische abzugleiten werden Techniken und Gründe präsentiert, wird in den Alltag von Menschen eingeführt, die das Lebensprinzip "Achtsamkeit" vollständig integriert haben. Kabat-Zinn erzählt dabei immer wieder von seinen Erfahrungen mit Anfängern, die er durch die von ihm abgehaltenen oder ermöglichten Kurse immer wieder trifft. Man fühlt sich durchaus mit dem einen oder der anderen verbunden, wenn sie sich zuerst zieren um später einmal überzeugt zu werden.Klar ... Wunderheilungen gibt es nicht. Wer Krebs hat, der kann ihn nicht wegmeditieren. In dieser Hinsicht ist der Titel durchaus irreführend. Worum es dem Autor aber geht ist die Art von Gesundheit, die das innere Gleichgewicht darstellt; eine seelisch-geistige, sozusagen. "Genesung", im Sinne der körperlichen Überwindung einer Krankheit, verspricht er dagegen nicht. Und das ist das Angenehme daran.Ich kann die Lektüre sehr empfehlen, wenngleich das Buch (meiner Meinung nach) zu umfassend geworden ist. Das mag größtenteils daran liegen, dass die Sprache, die er zur Vermittlung seiner Inhalte benutzt, ein wenig ... nuja. Weichgespült ist. Auf diese Art sind viele Formulierungen etwas ausufernd. Wenn man sich daran allerdings nicht stößt, kann ich es sehr empfehlen.

    There was a time when I's doing bad at everything. I looked fine but my spirit was chaotic, couldn't think straight and be positive. And then I searched on internet, that I should re-collect myself.This is where I found this book. Jon Kabat-Zinn's Guided Mindfulness Meditation. This not only helped me to regain myself but helped me in many ways. Together with Full Catastrophe Living: Using the Wisdom of Your Body and Mind to Face Stress, Pain, and Illness, I completed the reading, though I didn't complete reading the full book but I found its essence in the audio book.This took me almost 2-3 months to grasp the full knowledge and its practice.Regarding other people's complaintMany people complained that they had problem with Jon's voice which seemed to go fine for me.If you read this book, it's sure that it's going to bring marvelous change in you.Thank you Jon Kabat for this wonderful teachings of yours.

    To many people, Jon Kabat-Zinn is considered the father of mindfulness. He really has done remarkable work in the field of alternative medicine and mind-body approaches to healing. This CD walks you through a body scan and other exercises to help you live more in the present moment.

    Enrolled in the MBSR course and was required to listen to these CDs. The CDs are a great introduction into mindfulness, especially Mindful Yoga. I personally do not find his voice to be very soothing but his methods and the lessons learned from my MBSR course are so valuable to my every day life.

    Just... No. The breathing. His, not my relaxed breathing but listening to his while he waxed on about why meditation is a good thing. That isn't quite what helps me meditate. And his random "ommmm"s? He may be great in lecture but not so much on a meditation cd. False advertising, maybe?

    Just four guided meditations. I prefer his seated stuff, but I still went through the Hatha stuff he presented, which will be good for some people.

    This is the first in a series of 3 CD sets with guided meditation sessions. This set includes two CDs with basic Hatha yoga. I used this set in between stress management classes I took at Kaiser.
