Bringing Mindfulness to the Oireachtas
Mindful Nation Ireland is supporting the introduction of mindfulness in Leinster House. This initiative was inspired by the success of introducing mindfulness in the UK Parliament. In 2013 an All Party Political Group on Mindfulness in the UK parliament was established which led to the publication of a report called A Mindful Nation UK. This report makes recommendations for the implementation of mindfulness in the healthcare, justice and education sectors and well as across the corporate sector
In October 2018, an event was hosted by the Ceann Comhairle Seán Ó’Fearghail in Leinster House with UK MP Chris Ruane and Deputies Catherine Martin, Fiona O’Loughlin and Senator Frances Black.
