Science of Mindfulness (radio)

Speaking of Fatih (American Public Media)

April 16, 2009 — Buddhist Mindfulness with Jon Kabat-Zinn. Interview with Speaking of Faith host Krista Tippett. Scientist and author Jon Kabat-Zinn has changed medicine through his work on meditation and stress. We explore what he has learned, through science and experience, about mindfulness as a way of life; about slowing down time, as he says, and "opening to our lives." This is wisdom with immediate relevance to the ordinary and extreme stresses of our time — from economic peril, to parenting, to life in a digital age. » Visit the Web site and listen.
