Back in the Fall, Jon Kabat-Zinn, internationally known for his work as a scientist, writer, and meditation teacher engaged in bringing mindfulness into the mainstream of medicine and society, had a political meditation session. The session included dignitaries from countries including Israel, Sri Lanka, and Sweden. U.S. Congressman Tim Ryan was also present.
The mindfulness trend has reached the realm of international diplomacy. It’s a trend that benefits mental health and wellbeing and is spreading across the world. Many different cultures and religions are making it a modern phenomenon. It’s talked about and practiced from schools to wall street.
Mindful diplomacy may be the pathway to the progress we seek, and even to peace itself.
