Conversations: October 2009: Jonathan Foust

Jonathan Foust Bio:
Since my first yoga and meditation training at age 15, I’ve been a bit of a zealot in things related to mind, body and consciousness. I first encountered Dr. Gendlin’s book on Focusing when I was 25 and moving into what turned out to be almost 25 years of committed practice in spiritual community.

Over the years I’ve studied a wide variety of mind/body disciplines from the yogic and Buddhist traditions and have come to love the elegance of the Focusing process.

I teach meditation and Focusing as tools for developing awareness and compassion in venues ranging from private sessions to trainings and retreats.

I’m a member of the teacher’s council of the Insight Meditation Community of Washington, co-founder of the Mindfulness Training Institute of Washington and a senior teacher and former president of Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health.
