The Mindfulness Initiative is the world’s first policy institute focused on mindfulness and compassion training. It is dedicated to exploring the potential for mindfulness in politics and public life and has achieved extraordinary impact in the short time since it was founded:

Supporting the cultivation of mindfulness by legislators, to shift political culture and elicit wiser policymaking insights

Enabling policymakers and service commissioners to consider trainable capacities of heart and mind in their assessment of problems and design of solutions

Assessing mindfulness research and analysing current implementation; matching this with prevailing public policy concerns to make recommendations for change

Facilitating the sustainable development of the mindfulness sector and the appropriate adoption of mindfulness practices in public life

Advising politicians and teams of advocates in other countries in doing the above
