What is the antidote to our fast-paced, technology-driven, stress-inducing lifestyles? Is there a solution for the increasing disconnect from our bodies and the widespread health challenges we face?
This evening, Eileen Fisher is joined by Jon Kabat-Zinn, founder of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program used in healthcare, education, and workplaces throughout the United States and catalyst for the modern mindfulness movement. They will share personal and professional stories and experiences and discuss what mindfulness is, the measurable benefits of meditation, and the importance of integrating the mind and the body in our pursuit of health, wellness, and living life fully.
Mindfulness practices are being used for everything from personal stress relief to more effective workplaces and classrooms—and may just be the solution we need for navigating the demands of our lives and these times. Eileen regularly engages in mindfulness practices, including meditation and embodiment approaches, and has worked to introduce them in her company to create a more balanced work culture.
Together, these two pioneers, each pursuing a unique sense of purpose and commitment to personal discovery, have significantly impacted society as a result. Join them for an evening in which we are each invited to find our own connection to this cultural shift sweeping the nation.
