Jon Kabat-Zinn

Jon Kabat-ZinnWe live in an era beset by collective attention deficit disorder and haunted by uncertainty about how safe we are. In this immensely popular keynote from our 2005 Networker Symposium, Jon Kabat-Zinn argues that we can come to our senses through mindful awareness practice. His groundbreaking work in mind-body medicine has demonstrated the vital role meditation and awareness can play in healing. Through his blended use of humor, video examples, and storytelling, he’ll show you:

  • how mindful awareness can help us marshal our inherent clarity, wisdom, and creativity
  • techniques for cultivating greater awareness, both as clinicians and as members of the human race
  • the differences and connections between Buddhism and mindfulness-based practices


Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD, is professor of medicine emeritus at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, where he was founding executive director of the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society, and founder and former director of its world-renowned Stress Reduction Clinic. He’s the author of the bestsellers Full Catastrophe Living and Wherever You Go, There You Are. His new book is Coming to Our Senses: Healing Ourselves and the World Through Mindfulness.
