Catalyzing Wisdom, Healing, and Transformation
in a time of COVID-19

to the world-wide family of MBSR teachers
Catalyzed by the caring and tenacity of

TWO MORE SESSIONS WITH JON IN 2021
Saturdays May 22 and November 13, 2021
Jon Kabat Zinn invites the world-wide family of MBSR teachers and others teaching mindfulness in mainstream settings to join him for two more live online sessions of practice, inquiry, conversation, and deep connection. These sessions are offered as support for our own practice, understanding, intentionality, teaching, and being in an exceedingly challenging time, when the full catastrophe of the human condition is in florid evidence everywhere.
Jon’s intention for this online offering is to expand the opportunities for MBSR teachers and those teaching other mindfulness-based programs around the world to sit together and to engage in a deep dive into practice in every sense of that term. We will explore the nature of mindfulness itself and what we mean (and don’t mean) by it, its deep dharma roots, and how to embody it in ways that are adequate for the challenges and opportunities we are currently facing in our lives, our work, and our world.
About the sessions
Session 5 Saturday 22 May 2021, 12 – 4 pm US Eastern Time REGISTRATION WILL OPEN SOON
Session 6 Saturday 13 November 2021, 12 – 4 pm US Eastern Time
The sessions will be live on Zoom. The expectation is that all those who register will stay on for the entire time of each session; we recognise that this may mean early morning or late evening depending on your time zone. You can check your local time with this Time Converter.
The dates and times of each session are subject to change should circumstances require.
An invitation to offer a donation
These sessions are being offered by Jon as a gift in appreciation of the work that MBSR and MBI instructors are doing around the world. Ted Meissner and Anne Twohig are also offering their time as a gift. However, there are costs for technology, web design and administration in connection with registration and the mailing list. If you find value in these sessions, would like to have them continue, and are able to provide some support to administrative costs, we would very much appreciate a donation.

To Bless The Space Between Us
By John O’Donohue
“This is the time to be slow,
Lie low to the wall
Until the bitter weather passes.
Time will come good;
And you will find your feet
Again on the fresh pastures of promise,
Where the air will be kind
And blushed with beginning”
