When physical pain or emotional suffering appears in our lives, rarely do we dedicate the attention and care it deserves, and often treat it like something to be ignored. On occasion, we resort to medicine or reward ourselves with leisure or buying things with the false hope of alleviating it. Jon Kabat-Zinn, pioneer of Mindfulness across the world, outlines a series of guided meditations for another way to treat pain through self-knowledge of the body and the mind even among a culture that pushes us in the opposite direction.Cuando el dolor físico o el sufrimiento emocional aparecen en nuestra vida, rara vez les dedicamos la atención y el cuidado que merecen. Por contra, los vivimos como un contratiempo o algo de lo que deberíamos prescindir. En ocasiones, recurrimos a medicamentos, o tratamos de gratificarnos con ocio o compras con la falsa esperanza de atenuarlo. En Mindfulness para aliviar el dolor, Jon Kabat-Zinn, pionero en la investigación y la difusión del mindfulness en el mundo, nos brinda una serie de meditaciones guiadas que nos enseñarán otra manera de tratar el dolor mediante el autoconocimiento de la mente y el cuerpo, sin necesidad de huidas, aprendiendo a navegar aunque la vida nos empuje a contracorriente. «No puedes detener las olas, pero puedes aprender a surfear.» Jon Kabat-Zinn
