An Evening Talk with Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD

The Power of Mindfulness in Difficult Times

Event Details

Thursday, November 14, 2019
7:30-9 p.m.
Shannon Hall, Memorial Union
In this evening of talk, practice, and inquiry, Jon Kabat-Zinn will invite a reclaiming of what is deepest and best in all of us as human beings through the rigorous cultivation of moment-to-moment non-judgmental awareness, or mindfulness, and what it might look and feel like for each of us to practice in a way that is true to who we actually are. He will emphasize how such cultivation is not merely for one’s own healing or for reducing one’s own stress, powerful as that can be.
