What if human minds hold the key to bringing our world together?

When the Mind & Life Institute began over three decades ago, our founders envisioned a future where science and contemplative wisdom would come together to promote human flourishing.

In collaboration with hundreds of scientists, contemplatives, and changemakers, Mind & Life has since helped bring that vision to life by seeding the modern mindfulness movement and the field of contemplative science.

Yet today, we recognize that humanity is more divided than ever. It’s time for us to explore a new horizon that the Dalai Lama has always called on us to seek: unlocking the mind’s potential to break down barriers both within us and between us.
