Jon Kabat-Zinn: Let the Beauty We Love Be What We Do


Jon Kabat-Zinn: Let the Beauty We Love Be What We Do

Session#: 715-001

As a young student who'd discovered Zen meditation, Jon Kabat-Zinn found himself riveted by a question posed by visionary architect Buckminster Fuller: "What is it on this planet that needs doing that I know something about, which probably won't happen unless I take responsibility for it?"
In Kabat-Zinn's case, the answer was bringing the perspectives and practices of mindfulness into mainstream medicine and healthcare.
In 1979, he founded the Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center (now under the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society), the first scientifically grounded program in the country to use mindfulness meditation and yoga to help patients suffering from intractable pain and chronic illness. The author of several bestselling books--including Full Catastrophe Living; Wherever You Go, There You Are; Coming to Our Senses; Mindfulness for Beginners; and his latest, a revised edition of Everyday Blessings: The Inner Work of Mindful Parenting--he was featured in the Bill Moyer's PBS special Healing and the Mind.
In an era of instant and often chaotic communication, Kabat-Zinn will talk about the power of our fully engaged awareness to further our wellbeing, health, and sense of meaning as we explore our deep calling to be of service in an uncertain world.
