In this workshop, lawyer and mindfulness teacher Jon Krop shares the skills to cultivate the calm, clarity, and focus that can be so elusive during this time of crisis. Jon teaches a simple, effective sitting meditation practice and other mindfulness tools tailored to a lawyer's unique challenges and busy workday. He guides participants through short exercises that sharpen focus, calm the mind, and cultivate resilience in the face of anxiety and stress.

After law school, he clerked on the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and worked as a litigator at public-interest law firms in Los Angeles and New York City.

Jon has practiced mindfulness since 2006 and has studied with teachers from around the world, including psychologists, neuroscientists, and traditional Buddhist masters.
