Now in paperback, the guide to living a meaningful life from the world stress expert

"[The] journey toward health and sanity is nothing less than an invitation to wake up to the fullness of our lives as if they actually mattered . . ." --Jon Kabat-Zinn, from the Introduction

Ten years ago, Jon Kabat-Zinn changed the way we thought about awareness in everyday life with his now-classic introduction to mindfulness, Wherever You Go, There You Are. Now, with Coming to Our Senses, he provides the definitive book for our time on the connection between mindfulness and our physical and spiritual wellbeing. With scientific rigor, poetic deftness, and compelling personal stories, Jon Kabat-Zinn examines the mysteries and marvels of our minds and bodies, describing simple, intuitive ways in which we can come to a deeper understanding, through our senses, of our beauty, our genius, and our life path in a complicated, fear-driven, and rapidly changing world.

In each of the book's eight parts, Jon Kabat-Zinn explores another facet of the great adventure of healing ourselves--and our world--through mindful awareness, with a focus on the "sensescapes" of our lives and how a more intentional awareness of the senses, including the human mind itself, allows us to live more fully and more authentically. By "coming to our senses"--both literally and metaphorically by opening to our innate connectedness with the world around us and within us--we can become more compassionate, more embodied, more aware human beings, and in the process, contribute to the healing of the body politic as well as our own lives in ways both little and big.

Ernest J.P. Muhly, January 6, 2010 (view all comments by Ernest J.P. Muhly)
We are all influenced by the environment we find ourselves in. We sometimes struggle with our pasts. Sometimes we fret about the future. But the only influence we can really have is with what is happening at the moment we become aware that things are happening.

In the Buddhist realm this is referred to as mindfulness. It is part of the journey of embracing the sanity we are born with. And when dealing with misfortune or impending death, being mindful of ourselves and our value might be the best way to find happiness.

Coming to Our Senses is about healing ourselves and our world by being aware of what is happening where we are, and given the state of affairs in the world today, the insights it provides can benefit us all.
