In October 2017, government ministers from 15 countries gathered at the House of Commons in the British Parliament to explore whether mindfulness can help reset the conduct of national and international politics.
The event, claimed to be a world first, has been organised by senior Conservative and Labour MPs, who said they would discuss the potential of meditation “to help political leaders stay resilient, clear-minded and creative in the face of constant change”.
Since 2013, 145 UK parliamentarians have undertaken an eight-week course in the practice. The most senior British politician taking part in Tuesday’s event will be the sports minister Tracey Crouch.
Already 2011 parliament members in Sweden participated in an 8 week mindfulness program.
