Wherever You Go, There You AreBy Jon Kabat-Zinn

In a Nutshell

Wherever You Go, There You Are explains what mindfulness is and why it's not reserved for Zen practitioners and Buddhist monks, giving you simple ways to practice it in everyday life, both formally and informally, while helping you avoid the obstacles on your way to a more aware self.

Favorite quote

Meditation is the only intentional systematic human activity, which at bottom is about not trying to improve yourself or get anywhere else, but simply to realize where you already are.

Introduction

Even though we just started learning about Jon Kabat-Zinn, we like him already. He's a professor of medicine emeritus (that means retired, but still active) from the University of Massachusetts Medical School. You can consider him a founding father of modern mindfulness, having studied under the greats, such as Thích Nhất Hạnh and being a founding member of the Cambridge Zen Center. His mission being to connect mindfulness with science, Wherever You Go, There You Are was one of the major milestones of this quest.
