Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD

Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn has long been recognized as an outstanding teacher and visionary. His PhD is in Molecular Biology. However, Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn is renowned for being the first to integrate meditation into a Faculty of Medicine. He is the author of many books relating mindfulness to healing and is Professor of Medicine Emeritus at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.


We feel fortunate that Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn shared his philosophy and approach to parenting with KidCareCanada in a series of inspirational interviews. He encourages parents to experience joy with their babies, to touch them as much as possible, to “wear them”, and to learn from them, “Babies are like Zen Masters”.
