Full Catastrophe Living by Jon Kabat-Zinn

Full Catastrophe LivingThis is an update of a book written 15 years ago when the author was heading up a stress clinic in a major hospital.  It follows the eight-week hospital program, which is based on mindful meditation. Dr. Kabat-Zinn, who also wrote “Wherever You Go There You Are”, offers powerful lessons that I found helpful in negotiating full catastrophe living (which is the life we all face).  Small factoid:  Dr. Kabat-Zinn is the son-in-law of the great historian and progressive thinker (now deceased), Howard Zinn.  Try it – it may change your life.
