The UK Government’s Foresight6 Report
developed the concept of mental capital, by which it meant the cognitive and
emotional resources that ensured resilience in the face of stress, and the flexibility of mind and learning skills to adapt to a fast-changing employment market and longer working lives. It argued
that developing the mental capital of the nation will be “crucial to our future prosperity and wellbeing”. Qualitative research shows that mindfulness [meditation] develops exactly these aspects of
mental capital, encouraging a curious, responsive and a creative engagement to experience. The Mindfulness Initiative is an advocacy project, aimed at increasing awareness of how mindfulness can
benefit society. The Initiative is working with parliamentarians, media and policy makers to develop recommendations on the role of mindfulness in public policy and the workplace.
