    One thought on “Heal Thy Self: Lessons on Mindfulness in Medicine”

    1. This is an extraordinary book. I read it several times to really absorb it. It's not just about mindfulness in medicine - it's about finding the right balance when helping others and openly acknowledging the times of helplessness when we can do nothing or when we don't know what to do. Saki does what few teachers do - he delves into his shortcomings as a human being and healer. He frames the importance of being humble and open to "not knowing" during the healing process while capturing how messy [...]

    2. The lessons are broken into weeks and I would highly suggest taking the time to read and do the activities. I needed to finish the book in 8 days for an immersive yoga training and think I may have missed a lot from the brief amount of time I took to read the book.My most beloved concepts and quotes:Don't turn your head. Keep looking at the bandaged place.That's whee the light enters you. It is possible that the entire healing relationship is actually founded on friendship.Shattered, but still w [...]

    3. A must read for anyone interested in mindfulness, anyone in the health professions, and everyone else.Saki Santorelli is Jon Kabat-Zinn's "silent partner," the other half of the brains at the Stress Reduction Clinic at UMass Hospital. He writes so beautifully -- parts of this book read like Rumi poetry, which he borrows heavily from to create metaphors about healing. If you have never read anything about meditation or mindfulness, this is a wonderful introduction. If you've read everything else [...]

    4. This book wasn't really what I was hoping for. It focused more on bringing mindfulness to the medical field and how wonderful Saki was at teaching mindfulness to people in pain so they can be in a better place mentally. And that is all good. But I guess I was hoping for a more practical book where I could get suggestions for my clients. There was some in there don't get me wrong, I guess I just hoped for more. By the end it seemed he was just recycling concepts he had already discussed but gave [...]

    5. If you are health worker looking for a companion book to your MBSR practice, then this is the book for you. It is written in weekly installments to match the eight week Mindfulness based Stress Reduction program at UMASS Worcester founded by Jon Kabat-Zinn. The author, Saki Santorelli, is the current executive director of that program. Saki provides many anecdotes from his own practice as well as practical exercises to guide your own.If you’re interested in MBSR or mindfulness generally, then [...]

    6. This book by the man, who once directed the Stress Reduction Clinic at UMass, is full of stories about his work with patients and teaching medical students about mindfulness--the importance of being truly present with patients, experiencing the patient as a mirror of yourself, letting the patient be your teacher. Santorelli's writing style is beautiful; you feel as if he is speaking directly to you in a very personal way. His chapters are peppered with poetry, particularly that of Rumi and Mary [...]

    7. I greatly appreciate the witness Saki shares of the value of practicing mindful living and working and failing to be mindful and having to step back and try again. I like his style of writing and I felt I was a part of the story he was showing. Don't turn your head.Keep looking at the bandaged place.That's where the Light enters you.

    8. Questo libro - adesso tradotto anche in italiano - mostra il lato affettivo della mindfulness: heartfulness. Dare un'attenzione affettuosa come strada per esplorare se stessi, la nostra vita e la vita degli altri

    9. I only partially completed this book before returning it to the library, but based on what I have read so far, have added the book to my "to buy" list.
