Jon Kabat Zinn - Emotional Pain Is Worse

Published on Jan 12, 2016
Kabat-Zinn (born Kabat on June 5, 1944) is Professor of Medicine
Emeritus and creator of the Stress Reduction Clinic and the Center for
Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of
Massachusetts Medical School.

Kabat-Zinn was a student of Buddhist
teachers such as Thich Nhat Hanh and Zen Master 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
those of science. 

He teaches mindfulness, which he says can help people
cope with stress, anxiety, pain, and illness. 

The stress reduction
program created by Kabat-Zinn, called Mindfulness-based stress
reduction, is offered by medical centers, hospitals, and health
maintenance organizations.
