Hope for Pain Relief

I’ve known of mindfulness practices for several years, and read Full Catastrophe Living: Using the Wisdom of Your Body and Mind to Face Stress, Pain, and Illness by Jon Kabat-Zinn several years ago. It is one of the books I’ve recommended on this blog in the past.

I have only recently, though, truly committed myself to using the practices. I have to say that I was shocked to find that when I give myself over to the spirit of some guided meditations, the pain is gone. I am still on my medications, but I’m going down on dosages and using no breakthrough pain medication these days.

Kabat-Zinn has published many other products, including a CD of meditations entitled Mindfulness Meditation for Pain Relief: Guided Practices for Reclaiming Your Body and Your Life. I’m so impressed with the quality of his work on The Mindful Way through Depression: Freeing Yourself from Chronic Unhappiness and the other books I’ve mentioned that I have no hesitation in recommending that recording. I’d love to hear from others who are using mindfulness practices in their recovery, too!
