|Welcome. This website is the dedicated web vehicle for the secure
(highest level encryption) ordering of the stress reduction CDs and
tapes of Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn.
Dr. Kabat-Zinn is internationally known as a meditation teacher, author, researcher, and clinician in the fields of mind/body medicine, integrative medicine, lifestyle change, and self-healing. He is an expert in stress reduction, relaxation, and the applications of mindfulness meditation in everyday living to optimize one's capacity to face stress, pain, and illness across the lifespan. This work is now referred to by health professionals as mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), and is offered in medical centers, hospitals, and clinics around the world.
These mindfulness meditation practice CDs and tapes are used by thousands of people who have attended Dr. Kabat-Zinn's program in the Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, or who have taken other MBSR programs, or who have read his books, as described on this website. It is not necessary to take an MBSR program to derive benefit from these programs. They are meant to be used by themselves, or in conjunction with Dr. Kabat-Zinn's books, Full Catastrophe Living (Series 1),
Wherever You Go, There You Are (Series 2), and
Coming to Our Senses (Series 3).
These programs are an extremely effective way to develop and deepen a personal meditation practice without the ideological and cultural trappings that so often make it difficult for Westerners to drop into what is deepest and most beautiful, most liberating and most healing about meditation. Their use provides a very real opportunity to taste those universal aspects of stillness and well-being, clarity, wisdom, compassion, and self-compassion, that Buddhists often refer to as dharma.
