ACTION FOR HAPPINESS PRESENTS...

An evening with Jon Kabat-Zinn

Join us for a wonderful evening of wisdom, discussion and inspiration with Dr Jon Kabat-Zinn, the internationally acclaimed scientist, author and father of modern mindfulness teaching.

"Meditation is about living your life as if it really mattered - and that means you've got to be here for it, with awareness and with a certain degree of kindness towards yourself" ~ Jon Kabat Zinn

About Jon Kabat Zinn

Dr Jon Kabat-Zinn is a scientist, writer, and meditation teacher engaged in bringing mindfulness into mainstream society. He is professor emeritus at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, where he was founding director of the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society.

Dr Kabat-Zinn is the father of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, a modern, secular form of meditation. During his career, he has taught mindfulness to a wide variety to audiences, including groups of judges, business leaders, lawyers, clergy, Olympic athletes, environmental activists and many more.

He is the author of many books, including Full Catastrophe LivingWherever You Go, There You AreEveryday Blessings and Coming To Our Senses. His work has contributed to a growing movement of mindfulness into the healthcare system, schools, corporations and beyond.


*** Jon Kabat Zinn at Mindfulness in Schools Conference ***

If you are interested in mindfulness in an educational context we would also highly recommend the MiSP International Conference on 27 March - an outstanding opportunity to hear Jon outline both his vision for mindfulness in education and give advice on how to teach it yourself.

Any funds raised (beyond the costs of putting on the event) will contribute directly to Action for Happiness' work relating to growing the movement, enabling local action groups and supporting activities relating to happiness and well-being in schools.
