Mind & Life Founding Steward Jon Kabat-Zinn leads a meditation on befriending stillness from our April 2021 Inspiring Minds episode. We shared this video in 2022 as part of our 35th anniversary celebration.

In the meditation, Jon quotes the poet Rainer Maria Rilke:

I am the rest between two notes,
which are somehow always in discord
because Death’s note wants to climb over —
but in the dark interval, reconciled,
they stay there trembling.
And the song goes on, beautiful.
