Whether you support us already, or would like to start, leaving a gift in your Will can help us continue to advocate for practices of heart and mind central to the values we hold as a society, and the way we relate to and care for ourselves, each other and the world in which we live. We are so immensely grateful for those who help us continue to make this impact for future generations.” Jamie Bristow, Co-Director, The Mindfulness Initiative What difference will my gift make? Simply put, your gift will make a huge difference to the amount of policy and advocacy work we are able to do, and the number of people we are able to reach with it. Advocating for mindfulness and compassion for the health and happiness of the world is a mission that goes beyond all of our lifetimes. Your gift will help us to continue to inform, inspire and advocate for the very real difference mindfulness can make to people’s lives. Since 2015 the Mindfulness Initiative has: acted as secretariat to the Mindfulness All Party Parliamentary Group, introducing politicians to a number of key thought-leaders in the world of mindfulness and contemplative practices worked with international parliaments to support the establishment of mindfulness-based programmes for their politicians and staff continued to build on the inaugural Mindful Nation UK report by producing clear evidence-based work on mindfulness in health, education, criminal justice and the workplace written and advocated on the specific transformational impact practices of heart and mind can have on the global and societal issues requiring urgent attention and wise decision making. To ensure that much-needed change continues far into the future, one of the most impactful contributions you can make to our work is to kindly remember us in your Will.
