Pain, suffering, and stress can be intolerable, but it doesn't have to be this way. You Are Not Your Pain reveals a simple set of mindfulness-based practices that you can incorporate into daily life to relieve chronic pain and the suffering and stress of illness. Clinical trials show that mindfulness meditation can be as effective as prescription painkillers and enhance the body's natural healing systems. It also significantly reduces the anxiety, stress, depression, irritability, exhaustion, and insomnia that often accompanies chronic pain and illness.

Developed by two authors who have themselves struggled with the severe pain of serious injuries, this accessible book reveals the eight-week program that will quickly melt away your suffering. Taking just 10-20 minutes per day, it is a simple yet effective way to soothe some of the most common causes of pain such as back problems, arthritis, and migraine. It is also effective for people undergoing chemotherapy, or suffering from heart disease, diabetes, fibromyalgia, celiac disease, and many other causes of severe and chronic pain.

Accompanied by a CD of 8 meditations, readers will quickly learn to dissolve suffering by soothing the brain's pain networks. It will help you to live life fully once again.
