Kabat-Zinn has just the slightest salesman's affect, a magnificently persuasive, borderline hypnotic way of , well, selling his philosophy that would make me skeptical if it were not for the fact that his "product" is so damned appealing. Anyway, I bought Kabat-Zinn's book, because ultimately I decided that I could do worse than surrounding myself with the teachings of someone with such incredible wisdom, passion and common sense.

It was surely no coincidence.The insights gained from Krista's interview with Jon Kabat-Zinn were mind-altering.
Kabat-Zinn's approach, especially by presenting mindfulness and meditation as practical and scientifically sound tools for living life more fully, has quite frankly saved my life.I will always be grateful to my therapist, Josie, and Jon Kabat-Zinn for crossing my path at just the right time, in just the right way.
Kabat-Zinn's message is so valuable and needed at this time!reply Permalink Submitted by Italo Sessegolo on Mon, 2009-04-20 08:55Jon's insights are brilliant.

Listening to Jon Kabat-Zinn I was struck by his comments about the "mind" and the perceiving "body." In my practice of movement and bodywork, I am fascinated to find that people see the self that internally speaks as the mind.
