Will Kabat-Zinn

Will Kabat-Zinn is a mindfulness and meditation teacher whose passion is to help people wake up to their own deepest nature. Will spent close to a decade in and out of silent retreat, primarily in the Insight Meditation tradition and was deeply influenced by the rigor of his training with the late Sayadaw U Pandita of Burma and the fierce compassion of Chan Master Sheng-Yen of Taiwan.

Will is a member of Spirit Rock teacher’s council and board of directors and teaches meditation retreats and seminars nationally and internationally. He also holds a master's degree in counseling psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS).

Will lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with his wife and two children.
