No one, perhaps, has done more for the transmission of the dharma in the West than Jon Kabat-Zinn and he has done so without ever mentioning the word dharma.
Anyone who teaches mindfulness in a secular, healthcare setting would probably not be doing so had Jon not started the Stress Reduction Clinic at U Mass Medical Center over 30 years ago.
I first heard Jon speak at a conference in Boston in 1992. Eight years later I went to Worcester to complete the Professional Internship program that he founded at the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Healthcare, and Society.
It is with great respect and love that I present this talk by Jon.
