Jon Kabat-Zinn

Title of UFCSH talk: “Coming to Our Senses: Living Life As If It Really Mattered”
In this talk, Jon Kabat-Zinn describes mindfulness-based practices for restoring perspective and for waking up to our lives, beginning with our senses. Waking up to our senses at any age, and in any condition, we have the potential to heal and to wake up to the actuality of the world in which we live. This way of being allows us to inhabit both body and world with greater ease and freedom, even in the face of pain and fear, of numbness and feeling overwhelmed. As a result, we can contribute to the healing of mind and body with tenderness, compassion, and integrity in ways that matter profoundly.
