THE LANDMARK INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER ON MINDFULNESS, MEDITATION AND HEALING Stress. It can sap our energy, undermine our health and 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 programme, this classic, ground-breaking 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. 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. 'To say that this wise, deep book is helpful to those who face the challenges of human crisis would be a vast understatement. It is essential, unique, and, above all, fundamentally healing.' Donald M. Berwick, president emeritus and senior fellow, Institute for Healthcare Improvement
