Jon Kabat-Zinn's book Wherever You Go, There You Are is about mindfulness. According to the author, "Mindfulness means paying attention [to the world] in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally." That sentence seems a little obscure, and whenever I've attempted to explain mindfulness or meditation to friends, it's as though I can never make myself clear and they still walk away thinking it's all hokum. In spite of my inability to make it totally clear by definition, maybe I could illustrate it using some examples that Kabat-Zinn would probably approve of.

Take any given moment your in. I take it that you're sitting down somewhere right now reading this review. Focus on your breath. Notice how unaware of your own breathing you were before. Now, while reading this, expand the focus from your breath to the sensation of your body, your bottom against your seat perhaps, or the way the tip of your nose might feel cold or hot. Further expand the field of awareness to the sounds around you. Maybe you hear noise from other people. Maybe you hear nothing except the sound of your own breathing.

Project this mode of being aware into another setting. Perhaps you're at work, and someone is telling you how to do something. You might feel seeds of resentment growing inside you, asking the question in your mind how it is this person has the gall to tell you how do so something. You might feel personally attacked, a little nervous, your breath unsteady. Be aware of these sensations. Don't fight against them. But also listen to what the person says, as much as possible, without judgment. Is what this person is saying really a personal attack? Probably not. And if it is, does it really matter? Does he or she have control of your mind such that he could actually make you feel one way or another? Not if you choose to respond to it in a peaceful, proactive way and just take it for what it is, without judgment.

Maybe the above two paragraphs don't do it for you. Or maybe they do. The important thing is that mindfulness is about being aware and awake, and about choosing to make peace with the way you feel and the way you interact with the world. If you want to, you can always feel swept around by the winds of desire, or pulled around by anger or intense emotion as though there were a brass ring in your nose. Those are always options. But it's also another option to choose to practice inner tranquility. This is what this book is about.

I was looking for a refresher on mindfulness and a text to help guide me deeper into the practice. I can say this book delivered on both fronts. The chapters tend to be short and easy to read. Much of it comes across like listening to a talk from a great professor that leaves the technical details for the reading assignments. Using that as a metaphor, "Wherever you go, there you are" is the warm lecture from a caring teacher. "Full Catastrophe Living" (his more scientific and serious book) is the full corpus of research and exercises and concepts underlying the teacher's lecture.

Much like in college, you can skip the lecture if you master the corpus, but it's best to do both of you can. That said, anyone looking to really understand the methodology behind mindfulness and how it can be applied in a secular way to the suffering of the human condition, must read the aforementioned "Full Catastrophe Living". It's absolutely essential as the single book I would recommend to anyone for learning how to approach working with the present moment in ways that encourage insight and healing.

This book "Wherever you go , there you are" is nice but it won't provide the depth of instruction for practice as used in the medical setting or the science behind the mechanisms that make mindfulness so effective for many people.

This book is fantastic. I wish everyone would read it. The chapters are short and you can just pick it up and read a chapter from the middle if you need a little something, and you'll have a fresh, happy brain. Or read it cover to cover and then read it again.

I also got the audiobook and have been listening -- but I need a printed copy to refer back to. I am so glad I bought this. My friends are buying it, too!

You should probably read this if you are a human being in the 21st century. I was originally turned on to Mindfulness four years ago, but this book revived in me some of the peace of mind that I have lost over those years while helping me make new revelations about how to live mindfully in this hectic age. I recommend this book to anyone who has ever struggled with anxiety, panic, or self worth issues. This practice gives you the ability to examine your own thought process without getting looped into any of your usual negative hang-ups. I read it often, finish it sometimes, and read favorite passages whenever I get too world-weary and down on myself. It's a great resource to have around the house.

At some point in your life, you may begin to wonder, "Will things always be this way?" - so rushed, with barely a moment to call your own, and current events that swirl around you often reflecting the worst side of humanity. So lost in to-do lists that you barely know where they stop and you start. Or have you thought, "Will I always be this way?" - maybe anxious or irritated, perhaps distracted, or beginning to feel isolated from those around you - even from your loved ones? This book explains that living each moment fully (and what that phrase means) can bring you back to yourself, and to a peaceful yet connected stillness that ultimately enriches your life. It describes the discipline and detached self observation (i.e., meditation) required to achieve it. I found this book to best read in small sections, and I plan to re-read many times. In retrospect, I would buy next in paper form (not Kindle). It is filled with insightful and (if you let it) life-changing information.

This is a great book. I have had probably 5 or 6 copies of this book over the years as it's one that I consistently give to other people. It is a perfect, easy to read, practical book that demonstrates the underlying principles of mindfulness in a very down to earth way. It was certainly one of many "gateway" books for me many years ago, and others have told me that they have had similar experiences.

Truly one of my favorites and one that I recommend to many.
