Reflections and Guidance on the Cultivation of Mindfulness Jon Kabat Zinn, PhD

These videos by Jon Kabat Zinn are so enlightening and helpful. 

I have been trying to deal with my pain by practicing mindfulness. It is so easy to let the pain swallow you up and make you blind to what is happening in the moment. My emotions can sometimes lead me into such a state of anxiety, panic and depression so deep that I need a way to just let it all go. 

I have a long way to go but these are worth sharing and I hope you find peace as well. 

Jon Kabat-Zinn is Professor of Medicine Emeritus and creator of the Stress Reduction Clinic and the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.
