new from Jon Kabat-Zinn!

It’s not a luxury to actually cultivate mindfulness. It’s becoming an absolute necessity.”
- Jon Kabat-Zinn

In this new online program, StreetSmart Wisdom: Mindfulness In The Digital Age, Jon Kabat-Zinn, scientist, author, and Founder of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Steve Stein, Publisher at BetterListen/WisdomFeed, discuss the ever-growing importance of mindful living in the 21st century.

This StreetSmart Conversation features two native streetwise New Yorkers in a far-ranging informal conversation that touches on topics as diverse as:

  • A Digital Sabbath
  • What does it even mean for any of us to “do the right thing?”
  • The Science of Mindfulness
  • Mindful Parenting
  • Coping with nitty gritty everyday challenges to living mindfully in this world of perpetual digital distraction.

Toward the end, Jon leads the viewer in a 10 minute guided mindfulness practice.

WisdomFeed’s mission is to help decipher the teachings and ideas of distinguished thought-leaders, speakers and authors and then bring the messages down to 'street level' and make these vital concepts accessible to every day people.

To that end, Jon and WisdomFeed are donating a significant percentage of all revenues from this program, to support the New York Insight Meditation Center and their Sangha & Diversity Initiative. Which is committed to undoing racism and creating a truly inclusive Community.

This program has an informal conversational quality and covers a wide range of topics. It is hoped that professionals and laypeople, newcomers to mindfulness as a meditation practice and as a way of being, as well as graduates of MBSR programs and long-term mindfulness meditation practitioners, will find it interesting and inspiring.

* Proceeds from every sale of this course will be donated to the New York Insight Meditation Center.
