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

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.
