In this series of four books, Jon updates the material in his 2005 book, Coming to Our Senses: Healing Ourselves and the World Through Mindfulness. Each book opens with a brand new foreword. There is no question that if mindfulness was important when Coming to Our Senses first came out in 2005, it is infinitely more important now—personally, societally, and globally.
“I consider this a necessary book. If you are a parent, you will read it with fascination and return to it again and again throughout your life. If you are not a parent, the same is true, because it not only is an invaluable how-to-parent guide, but a beautiful and wise how-to-live primer. Reading this book could become a life-changing event. I recommend it enthusiastically.”
“A book for everyone... Jon Kabat-Zinn has done more than any other person on the planet to spread the power of mindfulness to the lives of ordinary people and major societal institutions.”
