The true pioneer of the Mindfulness movement, which has now spread worldwide and is the subject of thousands of academic studies, is Jon Kabat-Zinn. Dr. Kabat-Zinn did is primary work at the ‘Center for Mindfulness’ at the U Mass Medical Center and the impact is still unfolding worldwide.
Our prediction is, that he will, ultimately, be recognized by the larger medical and scientific community with the likes of Newton, Darwin, Jung, and others. (Being a truly humble person – he would probably be mortified if he heard anyone say this). But, as you can see, we believe his contributions to this field are a very big deal and will unfold for years.
