Mindfulness Retreats

Our Retreats are Profoundly Influenced by the Work of Jon Kabat Zinn

Jon Kabat Zinn is a professor of medicine and the creator of the Stress Reduction Clinic and the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine Health Care.

 Kabat-Zinn was a student of Zen Buddhist teachers such as Philip Kapleau, Thich Nhat Hanh and Seung Sahn and a founding member of Cambridge Zen Center. His practice of yoga and studies with Buddhist teachers led him to integrate their teachings with scientific findings. He teaches mindfulness, which he says can help people improve their experience of everyday life and cope better with stress, anxiety, pain, and illness.
