Falling Awake


By paying attention in the moment and to the people we are with, Jon Kabat-Zinn says we can bring a richness and power to our lives that goes beyond healing to give us meaning, wonder and joy in life. “It’s very similar to falling asleep,” he says, “only this is actually falling awake.” Kabat-Zinn has decades of experience with the effectiveness of meditative techniques for chronic stress and pain conditions as well as simple daily annoyances.
