In my quest to be a mindfulness expert, I have many books, blogs, articles, etc. to read. Of course, I want to read those of the current experts in the field. One of the "gurus" of the field is Jon Kabat-Zinn. He has many books on mindfulness and has been in the field for many years. All of his books are on my "to read" list. Anyone interested in cultivating mindfulness would be smart to check him out. So far, I have read:
This book was one of the first books I ever read on the topic and it had a huge impact on how I existed in the world. It was years ago that I read it and I am planning on a re-read. Also, for more of the "gurus" of the field and some free mindfulness meditations, I go to http://marc.ucla.edu/body.cfm?id=22. I recently
saw that they are offering a certification in mindfulness instruction. If I didn't live a million miles from CA and had the money, I would totally go! Talk about a "guru fest" of mindfulness! Seriously, though, I have done the five minute meditation that is free and not only does it promote mindfulness, it is instantly relaxing. So, take five and check it out. I'd love to know what you think about it.
