Discover how mindfulness can transform our relationship to pain and suffering with a beautifully illustrated book from Jon Kabat-Zinn. We know that practicing mindfulness in everyday life can help us reduce stress and cultivate deep, embodied well-being—but what about its effects on physical and emotional pain, especially when it seems overwhelming or unrelenting?
Jon Kabat-Zinn developed Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) to help medical patients with ongoing pain conditions who were not responding to conventional therapies. Since then, the practices of MBSR have become world-renowned for their effectiveness in pain management. With Mindfulness Meditation for Pain Relief, Kabat-Zinn provides a range of evidence-based mindfulness meditation practices that anyone can apply gently and effectively
to even the most intense forms of pain and suffering.
Mindfulness Meditation for Pain Relief is a soothing and beautifully illustrated book with accompanying guided meditations and teachings, offered digitally. It opens with an overview of seven fundamental attitudes we can develop to cultivate mindfulness in relationship to chronic pain and its incessant challenges, and follows with concepts and practices including: mindful breathing, working with intense sensations, befriending thoughts and emotions, finding refuge in awareness, and bringing mindfulness into every life. For anyone tired of suffering from the challenges that chronic pain presents to living a full and appreciative life, this is a welcome guide.

Jon Kabat-Zinn, the man who brought mindfulness into mainstream medicine, presents proven approaches for working gently and effectively to relieve even the most trying and intense chronic pain.
