IN THE EARLY 1990s, scientist, writer, and world-renowned mindfulness expert Jon Kabat-Zinnencountered Cherry Hamrick, a teacher in the small town of South Jordan, Utah, who wanted to bring mindfulness—the act of paying attention on purpose in the present moment—into her elementary school. Worried about how a largely Mormon community might react to such practices, Kabat-Zinn told the young teacher not to do it.

Jon Kabat-Zinn - Full Catastrophe Living

Full Catastrophe Living (Audio): Using the Wisdom of Your Body and Mind to Face Stress, Pain, and Illness.


Jon Kabat-Zinn (born June 5, 1944) is Professor of Medicine Emeritus and founding director of the Stress Reduction Clinic and the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Kabat-Zinn was a student of Zen Master Seung Sahn and a founding member of Cambridge Zen Center. His practice of yoga and studies with Buddhist teachers led him to integrate their teachings with those of Western science. He teaches mindfulness meditation as a technique to help people cope with stress, anxiety, pain and illness. A stress reduction program created by Kabat-Zinn is offered at medical centers, hospitals, and health maintenance organizations.

The story has been told many times of how Kabat-Zinn ended up teaching people in a hospital function-room to eat a raisin as if for the first time, to scan each and every area of their body, to stretch, turn, twist, breathe, walk, and above all pay attention to moment after moment after moment.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

As a veteran of MBSR I can say Kabat-Zinn's ideas have made my life better. Ironically, I did the raisin work (Hersey's Kiss too) with my middle school kids as a prewriting lesson way back in the 80's. We'd regularly do guided meditations as well.  What strikes me know, is that I knew nothing about mindfulness or meditation at the time. I was just looking for a way to help my students focus on the moment then capture their thinking with words.
