The topic of mindfulness is becoming ever more popular—and for in-depth guidance rooted in the Buddha’s original teachings on the subject, Joseph Goldstein’s Mindfulness stands alone. Now available in paperback, this exquisitely detailed and eminently practical work illuminates the Satipatthana Sutta—the Buddha’s legendary discourse on the four foundations of mindful living.

Whether it’s in business, education, medicine, or politics—wherever we apply the principles of mindfulness, benefits emerge. Yet its original purpose has remained throughout the centuries: spiritual development and, ultimately, enlightenment. In Mindfulness, Joseph Goldstein shares the wisdom of four decades of teaching and study in a book to serve as a lifelong companion for anyone committed to mindful living and the realization of inner freedom.

Reviews:

“A major contribution to the clarifying and deepening of our understanding of mindfulness and its traditional dharma roots.”
—Jon Kabat-Zinn, author of Mindfulness for Beginners

“Joseph Goldstein is one of our most brilliant teachers. This is a masterwork of wisdom, depth, and experience, combining careful analysis, meditative guidance, and great love.”
—Jack Kornfield, author of A Lamp in the Darkness

“Author Joseph Goldstein—one of the most wise, lucid, and experienced teachers of our times—has written a book on mindfulness that calls forth the depth and power of classical Buddhist teachings. If you are drawn to meditation out of a longing to realize spiritual freedom, this book will be a cherished resource on your path.”
—Tara Brach, PhD, author of True Refuge

“Joseph Goldstein has written an immensely clear, practical, and accessible guide to living a mindful life. From examining its roots to exploring its manifold expressions, this deeply significant work shows the path for mindfulness to become our closest friend. I feel like I’ve waited a long time for a book just like this, and here it is!”
—Sharon Salzberg, author ofReal Happiness

“In eloquent and compelling detail by a master of the art, Goldstein's new book shows how mindfulness leads to calm, well-being, and the joy of self-realization. The most complete and understandable book on mindfulness in print.”
—Reggie Ray, author of Touching Enlightenment and Mahamudra for the Modern World
