We are a global community exploring the potential for secular mindfulness training and practice to contribute to more sustainable, caring and socially just societies. We share a common interest in how the human capacity for mindful awareness can contribute to effective responses to social, economic and environmental challenges; and how mindfulness practice, courses and communities need to be responsive to the social and political context of individual stress, wellbeing and change. Since 2014 we’ve been supporting each other through knowledge sharing, capacity building and collective inquiry.
