He will also conduct a silent retreat in meditation and stress reduction at the Kluge Morven Pavilion from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. May 5. Reservations may be made by calling 924-1190.

Kabat-Zinn is the founder and former executive director of the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care and Society and a professor of medicine at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. His books include Wherever You Go, There You Are: Mindfulness Meditation in Everyday Life, and Full Catastrophe Living: Using the Wisdom of Your Body and Mind to Face Stress, Pain and Illness. His work has been featured on “Healing and the Mind,” a Public Television series with Bill Moyers.

Kabat-Zinn’s visit is part of the University’s mindfulness-based stress reduction program, which is supported by John and Maria Tussi Kluge. The program involves yoga and meditation to improve health and manage illness.
