Jon Kabat-Zinn

Jon Kabat-Zinn is Professor of Medicine Emeritus and founder and director of the University of Massachusetts Medical School’s Stress Reduction Clinic and the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care and Society. He has become famous for using mindfulness meditation to help people cope with stress, pain and illness. Kabat-Zinn also conducts meditation retreats at the Center For Mindfulness. Over 200 medical centers and clinics in the US and elsewhere now use mindfulness to assist healing in patients. I think the Buddha would smile if he knew that his most precious discovery, mindfulness, were being used by medical professionals to alleviate suffering. Watch this interesting talk by Prof. Kabat-Zinn. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3nwwKbM_vJc

...tuning your mind daily like tuning an instrument before you start the orchestra... A genius metaphor.
