As I do every weekend I read both the Toronto Star and Globe and Mail newspapers. An interesting article appeared in the Sunday Star in the ideas section- The bestsellers for real!
The article detailed a new, more reliable way of tracking the bestselling books in the country. One book stood out for me that was not on the either the Globe or Star’s best seller lists. It is called Coming to our Senses by Jon Kabat-Zinn.
I was floored to see it there. Jon Kabat-Zinn has a Stress Reduction Clinic and Center for Mindfulness at the U of Massachusetts Medical School. He is considered one of the world’s foremost experts on the health benefits of meditation. Some of the studies are showing dramatic health results from the practice of meditation.
Looks like Canadians are catching on!
