Now in paperback, the guide to living a meaningful life from the world stress expert

“[The] journey toward health and sanity is nothing less than an invitation to wake up to the fullness of our lives as if they actually mattered . . .” –Jon Kabat-Zinn, from the Introduction

Ten years ago, Jon Kabat-Zinn changed the way we thought about awareness in everyday life with his now-classic introduction to mindfulness, Wherever You Go, There You Are. Now, with Coming to Our Senses, he provides the definitive book for our time on the connection between mindfulness and our physical and spiritual wellbeing. With scientific rigor, poetic deftness, and compelling personal stories, Jon Kabat-Zinn examines the mysteries and marvels of our minds and bodies, describing simple, intuitive ways in which we can come to a deeper understanding, through our senses, of our beauty, our genius, and our life path in a complicated, fear-driven, and rapidly changing world.

In each of the book’s eight parts, Jon Kabat-Zinn explores another facet of the great adventure of healing ourselves — and our world — through mindful awareness, with a focus on the “sensescapes” of our lives and how a more intentional awareness of the senses, including the human mind itself, allows us to live more fully and more authentically. By “coming to our senses” — both literally and metaphorically by opening to our innate connectedness with the world around us and within us — we can become more compassionate, more embodied, more aware human beings, and in the process, contribute to the healing of the body politic as well as our own lives in ways both little and big.

      What does it take to be happy? We’ve all asked ourselves this question at some point, but few of us have found the path to lasting fulfillment. David Michie thought he had achieved his life’s goals–the high-level job, the expensive city apartment, the luxury car, the great vacations–but a small voice was telling him he wasn’t really happy. A chance remark from a naturopath sent him to his local Buddhist center. There he began the most important journey of his life. In this simple but beautifully written book, David Michie opens the door to the core teachings of Tibetan Buddhism. With wry, self-deprecating humor, he shows us now he began to incorporate Buddhist practices into his daily life. He explains how he came to understand the difference between the temporary pleasures of ordinary life and the profound sense of well-being and heartfelt serenity that comes from connecting with our inner nature. Every once in a while you come across an extraordinary book with the power to change your life. Buddhism for Busy People is one such book.

        Da Capo

        Their second album, from November 1966, featuring the explosive “7 & 7 Is,” a Top 40 hit in 1966 and an all-time garage-punk classic. Exact repro from the analog masters!Jimi Hendrix wasn’t the only black musician making inspired psychedelic rock in 1967. Memphis-born, L.A.-bred Arthur Lee combined his flair for Technicolor R&B with Bryan MacLean’s talent for ornate show tunes to form a wonderfully schizophrenic combination in Love. The group’s second album boasted such strange but memorable tunes as “7 and 7 Is,” “Orange Skies,” and “She Comes in Colors,” which Lee said was quite literally about making love to a woman who had her period. The album was capped off by the epic, 19-minute upside-down and inside-out blues, “Revelation,” which was produced by an uncredited Neil Young. Jim Derogatis
