The Mindfulness Initiative welcomes applications to this, the second round of awards for innovative work in the mindfulness sector. Innovation is a crucial element in making mindfulness practices more accessible, diverse and effective. Find out more and apply here.

Launched in 2022, the Innovations in Mindfulness Awards seek to celebrate and encourage creative innovations which are developing the field and making the benefits of mindfulness available to new audiences. The impact for previous finalists has surpassed expectations, prompting new partnerships, leading to increased visibility, and opening doors to funding opportunities.

The Fieldbook for Mindfulness Innovators – original inspiration for these Awards – has been updated and revitalised by its author, the innovation specialist Menka Sanghvi. Among other new content, it now includes sections on social mindfulness, as well as diversity, equity and inclusion. This resource is free and available for download, and is an invaluable roadmap to guide the development of impactful and sustainable mindfulness programmes.

The Innovations in Mindfulness microsite is a new hub for innovation in mindfulness. It’s a source of information and inspiration, and a platform for anyone from mindfulness teachers to funders, policy makers or researchers. Blog pieces are welcome, reflecting diverse perspectives and ideas to spark conversations, because innovation doesn’t happen in a silo.

Take a look around for details of the Awards categories and criteria, videos of previous finalists, thought-provoking blogs, and a treasure trove of ideas and guidance in the updated Fieldbook.
