From the publisher: As stress continues to exact a toll on everyday life, people are increasingly turning to ancient, meditative methods, which have been tested by science, to relieve the ill effects and become more focused, healthy, and proactive. Kabat-Zinn has been for decades at the forefront of this mind/body movement and the revolution in medicine and health care it has spawned, demystifying it and bringing it into the mainstream.
From the publisher: The Bonny Method of Guided Imagery, an innovative program of music therapy, uses the harmonies and melodies of classical masterworks to unlock inner stresses and explore the most deeply embedded areas of the psyche. It is a truly profound strategy for personal transformation. Listen to the beautiful music on the companion disk while completing guided imagery exercises.
From the publisher: The body is viewed as integral to the mind in this book and in the approaches illustrated in it. Instead of splitting off the body and treating the patient as a body with a mind, contributors from a variety of approaches ask the reader to consider how we might be with, and work with, "bodymind" as an interrelated whole.
