Jon Kabat-Zinn – Mindfulness for All


More than 20 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. He followed that up with 2005’s Coming to Our Senses, the definitive book for our time on the connection between mindfulness and our well-being on every level, physical, cognitive, emotional, social, planetary, and spiritual.

Now, Coming to Our Senses is being repackaged into four smaller works, each focusing on a different aspect of mindfulness,and each with a new foreword written by the author. In the fourth of these works, Mindfulness for All (which was originally published as Part VII and Part VIII of Coming to Our Senses), Kabat-Zinn focuses on how mindfulness really can be a tool to transform the world – explaining how democracy thrives in a mindful context, and why mindfulness is a vital tool for both personal and global understanding and action in these tumultuous times.

By “coming to our senses” – both literally and metaphorically – 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.

I bought this book with the misguided belief from the title that I would learn more about mindfulness – how to practice it more fully and also to learn how it works. Instead the author uses this book to give his opinion on everything thats wrong with the world – leaders, healthcare, etc, and to say that all of this can be ameliorated through a more widespread adoption of mindfulness. I learned nothing more about mindfulness itself.
