Publisher's Summary

Proven Mindfulness Techniques to Help You "Step Outside" Physical Pain 

The newest treatment for pain is one of the oldest, most effective strategies for pain-free living: meditation. In Break Through Pain, meditation expert Shinzen Young teaches you how to "retrain" your relationship to pain through traditional meditation practices. Drawing from 20 years of results in the field, this widely respected teacher offers the essential meditation techniques that have proven effective at pain management centers around the country. 

Break Through Pain adapts the core principles of mindfulness training to a practical process that can treat even extreme, chronic pain effectively, possibly reducing the need for drugs or surgery. You learn that by observing and opening to pain, you can stop resisting it and "step outside" physical suffering. Step-by-step techniques taught in plain language show how to overcome internal resistance - the key to transforming physical pain into a flow of pure energy. Break Through Pain presents four complete meditation exercises that, with regular practice, can tap your mind's own power to overcome physical pain. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Forget painkillers

Pain will be with you for the rest of your life. Understand to live with it, to let it flow, and teach what it wants to teach you. And do it through this book, the guidance that is, in my experience, the best one can get.

The story is great, why is the flute so loud?

I really dont understand why there is a flute playing so loud after the really great meditations. I think the meditations will help me deal with the pain.

Poor

Poor. Really poor. The narrator/author makes far too many assumptions about the level the listener is operating at. Allied to that his voice has a nasal quality which is irritating.
