    I love Jon Kabat Zinn! I got into mindfulness meditation over a year ago partly due to doing some of his relaxation exercises on CD. :)

    His book 'Full Catastrophe Living' has been helping me deal for a few years now. I really like him too.

    oh good - i hoped someone would mention this guy. Full catastrophe living is a great book and clearly written - has helped me with health anxiety and coming to terms with health problems. I am reading it alongside thich nhat hahn's the heart of buddha's teaching- good intro to Buddhist teachings.

    I guess that's like saying: 'i'm really into music i've got Sergeant Pepper's lonely hearts club band and Beethoven's 5th!' Obvious huh? Still masterpieces though:bowdown:

    The book and audiobook Wherever You Go, There You Are is a wonderful introduction to meditation. There was a time when I listened to the audiobook repeatedly because I found it put me into a meditative state. It's very thoughtfully done. I'm returning to it now, since I have returned to meditation practice.

    I haven't read the book (though I'd like to), but I've listened to the audiobook of Full Catastrophe Living Compared to Wherever You Go... it's a more bare boned presentation, tougher, yet still effective.
