Jamie Bristow

Jamie is director of The Mindfulness Initiative, an organisation that clerks the UK All-Party Parliamentary Group on Mindfulness and has helped politicians to conduct a 12-month inquiry into how mindfulness could be incorporated into British services and institutions. The resulting report, Mindful Nation UK, focuses on four key policy areas: education, healthcare, criminal justice and the workplace, using the available evidence to make substantive recommendations as to how mindfulness can help meet Government objectives.

Jamie is also a mindfulness teacher and consultant, with clients that include the Oxford Mindfulness Centre, part of Oxford University Psychiatry Department and a global leader in research and clinical training. He was formerly Business Development Director at Headspace.
