Taking the mindful approach to life means increased awareness of all aspects of the self – body, mind, heart and soul - resulting in a balanced sense of health and well-being. Proponents of mindfulness tout it as a deep, internal resource that, once tapped into, can help overcome stress, chronic pain, anxiety and other health problems. Other purported benefits include improved self-esteem, greater energy and more enthusiasm for life. Sounds great – so how is it done? Here to answer your questions is Jon Kabat-Zinn, the author of numerous books on mindfulness including Wherever You Go, There You Are: Mindfulness Meditation in Everyday Life. Could mindfulness help you achieve your goal of greater health and happiness?

Guest:

Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D., Professor of Medicine emeritus University of Amherst Medical School and founder of Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction and The Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care and Society
