Publisher's Summary

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 books, each focusing on a different aspect of mindfulness, and each with a new foreword written by the author. In the third of these books, The Healing Power of Mindfulness (which was originally published as part V and part VI of Coming to Our Senses), Kabat-Zinn focuses on the ways mindfulness can change the body and rewire the mind - explaining what we're learning about neuroplasticity and the brain, how meditation can affect the immune system and what mindfulness can teach us about facing impermanence and, eventually, the end of our own lives. 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.
