There has always been a deep commitment at Mind & Life toward understanding what an ethical life can and should mean in today’s world. By becoming more aware of our deep interdependence and the need for mutual care, a proper foundation for ethics is possible – one that allows us to better address the global challenges we face. Mind & Life’s Ethics and Education for Students and Teachers (EEST) initiative aims to address the limited attention in our educational systems for cultivating care and compassion – what we might call the forgotten heart of education. By developing our natural capacities for caring, we believe we can embed ethics deeply enough so that it animates all human interaction.
