    One thought on “Arriving at Your Own Door: 108 Lessons in Mindfulness”

    1. Short sentences to make you "stay in the moment", or trying to get there at last. It was ok but it is just another book on mindfulness in my opinion, even if it is written by the master.Brevi frasi per fare sí che si viva il momento, o quanto meno ci si provi. Non era male pur se é l'ennesimo libro sulla Mindfulness, questo peró lo ha scritto il maestro.

    2. Kabat-Zinn is credited with introducing the concept of mindfulness to mainstream medicine and society. This little gem represents a best-of collection of quotes from his later work. A coffee-table book compiled from Jon Kabat-Zinn's "Coming to Our Senses: Healing Ourselves and the World Through Mindfulness", "Arriving at Your Own Door" highlights Kabat-Zinn's ability to put into words concepts which are often difficult to absorb.Kabat-Zinn has a gift for describing the process of mindful awarene [...]

    3. Upon yet another reading, this book offers even more delights and insights. It is an epigrammatic and extremely helpful book -- it allows readers many ways to recenter and remember: it is here, it is here, it is here. "Obstacles to practice are infinite. Yet all of them turn into allies when they are embraced in awareness. They can feed the practice, rather than impede it, if we recognize them for what they are and allow them to simply be part of the nowscape because, wonder of wonders, they alr [...]

    4. "Arriving at your own Door" is wonderful because you can read it cover to cover or just open to any page and read the wisdom off the page. Each quote has a message that helps one reflect on the truisms we all share. The author of the book Jon Kabat-Zinn compiled a list of quotes from others to go with his mindfulness lessons.One such quote inserted is a quote from Marcel Proust, "The true journey of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having fresh eyes."

    5. Une condensé de pensées flash, l'essence de la philosophie de la pleine conscience. Beaucoup de réflexions très profondes et pourtant vraies. Il m'a fallu relire plusieurs fois certains passages pour m'imprégner pleinement des idées sous-jacentes. Un livre à lire et relire, et surtout à pratiquer au quotidien.

    6. Lovely easy-read for the bedside-table.I am a psychologist and work with mindfulness daily, and this was a nice little reminder about the essential points about going through life in the best possible, "mindful" way.Some of the book's best points - which many of the "lessons" depict - call attention to two critical things: 1. how the present is a point of opportunity, of branching ramification, and 2. how our very own understanding about our pain affects the amount of pain and the mastering ther [...]

    7. My third book of Jon Kabat-Zinn, a professor of Medicine Emeritus and creator of the Stress Reduction Clinic and the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Kabat-Zinn was a student of Buddhist teachers such as Thich Nhat Hanh and Zen Master Seung Sahn and a founding member of Cambridge Zen Center; well, mindfulness as slogans is a paradox and I utterly prefer the long version of mindfulness instead. I would recommend readin [...]

    8. What I taught? Well: I absolutely prefer the LONG version of mindfulness, in my opinion mindfulness as slogans is a paradox. Mindfulness is all about depth - not skimming the surface. There is lots of interesting stuff in this book, but I would recommend reading or listening to full book versions of Kabat-Zinn's work.

    9. Ce livre contient 108 textes à méditer accompagnées du CD. Je pense qu'il convient mieux à quelqu'un déjà initié à la méditation que moi car il ne propose pas d'aide à la méditation. J'ai beaucoup aimé le CD et je compte relire ce livre lorsque j'aurai mieux appréhendé le concept même de la méditation.

    10. The book's title is a little misleading in the sense that it sounds like if you read this book you may experience mindfulness, but it's more for someone who has already been practicing this "technique" and perhaps is looking for something a bit deeper.

    11. As a daily reminder to attend to the present moment rather than being driven by the regrets of yesterday or the "awfulizing" of future events, this was a helpful resource. The simple one or two line reminders were concise and powerful.

    12. I was disappointed because I never would have thought that taken out of context the author's quotes would sound so banal and commonplace. In this abbreviated style, his teachings (and I am really a fan) just don't get across at all.

    13. I love the opening poem and I enjoyed reading these "lessons" but my drive to finish probably hampered my ability to understand.

    14. These kinds of books are hard for me to read & remember. Lots of great thoughts, they just don't stay with me.

    15. There are many small observances about meditation here to help anyone deepen their appreciation of their practice.

    16. Well to me this is a woounderful source of inspiration and I don't have the ambition to read through it but bring it out when I feel the need to re-fill some good energy.
