First Summit on Mindfulness in Politics

By the Mindful Globe

Sander Tideman gives his account of attending the summit at the House of Parliamant in London.

Jon Kabat-Zinn, keynote speaker at the confrence:

‘In a world that is increasingly divided, fearful and full of inequalities, mindfulness can help us to return to our innate human wakefulness and human-being-ness. From here we can make more wholesome and far-sighted decisions and design policies that bring wholeness and well-being to society. This is a most wonderful window of opportunity at a time when the world seems in a perilous state.’

‘It is my hope that together with you, Mind & Life Europe can support the emergence of a European platform for the dissemination of mindfulness in politics.’
