MBSR: An evening with Jon Kabat-Zinn

By simply bringing our attention to the breath we arrived to this moment in our experience, in our lives. And with the skill of a maestro, Jon asked people to stand if first. they had taken MBSR training at the centre. Second, if they were researchers or clinicians who had been trained in MBSR. And finally, if they were from other countries. As each group was recognized in turn there grew a profound sense of inteconnection in the room.

There was a deep sense of hope that through our cultivation of the bloom of the present we could change how we respond to the many challenges. We could limit the negative effects of the three causes of unwise action, greed, hate and ignorance. All that is required is to live more fully in the analogue world.
