Summary

The United Kingdom has recently emerged as one of the leading fronts of the global mindfulness movement.

While mindfulness continues to garner substantial attention as an effective therapeutic intervention, our wider understanding of the people, places, and practices that constitute this diverse field remains limited.

This landmark three-year project, funded by the Leverhulme Trust, will provide the first large-scale social study of the mindfulness milieu in the UK. This will involve detailed accounts of the Who, What, Where, Why and How of the provision of mindfulness today, and their evaluation in relation to wider cultural, economic, political, and religious trends in contemporary society.
