We were delighted to hear this week that Jamie Bristow, formerly of Headspace and one of the speakers at Well-being At Work Event in October, has taken over as director of the Mindfulness Initiative. The Mindfulness All-Party Parliamentary Group are preparing a report on the applications of mindfulness across key areas of public life and has been formally reinstated following its dissolution at the General Election. Jamie’s role will include formally launching the report as well as ensuring its impact in the workplace.
The Mindful Nation UK report will focus on the policy areas of health, education, criminal justice, and the workplace, has been approved by the All-party Parliamentary Group and the public launch will take place after the summer recess. Contributors to the report include 20 experts in the field, including several professors from five universities – we’re looking forward to the results.
