“This book does a magnificent job of rendering not only the curriculum of MBSR but, even more importantly, its feeling tone, gently emphasizing that it takes energy and sustained commitment to practice and embody mindfulness. I am grateful that this book is now available as a skillful gateway into MBSR, mindfulness, and one’s own life in the face of stress, pain, illness, and the human condition itself.”
— Jon Kabat-Zinn, founder of MBSR and author of Full Catastrophe Living and Coming to Our Senses
