Jon Kabat-Zinn: Mindfulness Goes Global

Jon Kabat-Zinn talks about his current work, and his vision of MBSR's purpose. 

While shrugging off the idea that anyone should imitate him, Jon Kabat-Zinn humbly admits “I barely know how to live my life”. He also says “mindfulness can become as¬†commonsensical as eating breakfast,” and discusses teaching mindfulness in China and his goals as a writer.

“My books are meant to be a tool,” he says. “[They are] aimed at training the reader into an experience of themselves, so that mindfulness becomes just as commonsensical as breakfast.”

“It’s not one size fits all. The curriculum is life itself.”
