Jon Kabat-Zinn, author of the widely praised WHEREVER YOU GO, THERE YOU ARE shows how the power of mindfulness can bring profound changes to your personal life.

Offers a remarkable insight into how to use the five senses - touch, hearing, sight, taste, and smell - as a path to a healthier, saner, and more meaningful life.
