«The daily practice of mindfulness will be a moment of your own, not to be filled or used, but in which to simply be in good company with yourself, in which to stop, to get intimate with the life that unfolds and that expresses itself instantly in moment in your body, in your mind, in your heart. "
For decades Jon Kabat-Zinn has shown the tangible benefits of meditation to an ever-growing audience. Today, millions of people have included mindfulness meditation as a daily routine in their lives. But what does meditation consist of in practice? How does a formal meditation session take place? And how can we overcome the obstacles due to the era of perpetual distraction in which we live and which prevent us from inserting the practice of meditation into everyday life? Awakening clearly answers these increasingly pressing questions. Originally published as a part of Shooting the Senses, it has been expanded and updated by a new preface by the author.
