The Founder of MBSR on Meditation

Filed under: Meditation, Video — jonathanfoust @ 11:28 am

Jon Kabat-Zin has been one of the most influential people in the west when it comes to bringing meditation to the mainstream.  Way back when meditation was seen as an exotic and weird practice, working through the University of Massachusetts, he was looking at how it would be quantified as being of benefit.  Below you’ll see Jon on Mindfulness.

(Thanks, John!)

  2. This is a wonderful video..but doesn’t the early camera angle make Mr. Kabat-Zinn look like he has breasts? 😉 I really couldn’t help but share this thought with you, because it made me giggle. I am excited to be signed up for your blog. The dynamic meditation piece had me fall off of my chair, I laughed so hard. Thank you Sudhir!
