On March 28, Salesmanship Club of Dallas’ Momentous Institute and The Lynn Lectures invite you to learn revolutionary, research-proven strategies to combat the epidemic in your own life with world-renowned stress experts Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D., and Elissa Epel, Ph.D. Dr. Kabat-Zinn – dubbed ‘the grandfather of mindfulness’ – and Dr. Epel – whose recent book on living younger hit the New York Times bestseller list – will join forces for the first time at this one-night event. Combining decades of mindfulness research with brand-new research on living younger, Drs. Kabat-Zinn and Epel will share immediate tactics to combat stress and dramatically enhance well-being. The event – called Love & Wisdom in a Time of Stress – will be held on March 28 from 7 to 9 p.m. at Southern Methodist University’s McFarlin Auditorium. Tickets start at $25 and are available here. Dr. Kabat-Zinn is an internationally recognized scientist, writer, teacher and pioneer in the field of mindfulness. He is the founding executive director of the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. He founded the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction – a program that has helped more than 22,000 people since its inception in 1979. Dr. Epel is a professor of psychiatry at the University of California, San Francisco and co-author of the recent New York Times bestselling book, “The Telomere Effect: A Revolutionary Approach to Living Younger, Healthier, Longer.” Her research reveals how regular mindfulness practice, nutrition, exercise, and other lifestyle practices could possibly reverse the effects of psychological stress and lifestyle on biological aging.
