Great Hall; enter on Eighth Avenue. $20.

Community, Family

This event is sold out. 

In a rare visit to the Pacific Northwest, “mindfulness” experts Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn and Myla Kabat-Zinn inspire parents, grandparents—and anyone working with children—to slow down and be more present with their kids. In a talk titled “Nurturing Our Children, Growing Ourselves,” the Kabat-Zinns explore how the cultivation of mindfulness in daily life can help us work with the challenges we face with children at different ages, and to enrich the joys inherent in parenting and family life. Jon Kabat-Zinn is a world-leading scientist/researcher and meditation teacher who brought mindfulness to mainstream society; his best-selling books include Wherever You Go There You Are; Full Catastrophe Living; and Everyday Blessings, co-authored with his wife, Myla Kabat-Zinn. Presented by ParentMap.

Advance tickets are $20 at; $25 at the door. Great Hall; enter on Eighth Avenue.

    Will there still be tickets available for purchase at the door on the evening of this event? I really truly would love 1 ticket.

    Thank you!

      I have one ticket available, if you’re still interested. I live in Fremont- you’d need to pick it up…

        Jessica, is your ticket still available? I’d love it if it is and can come by in the morning to get it.

        Thanks, Peggy
