"It is with humble thanks that we accept this donation. Historically, Mind and Life has acted as a support organization,"
The donation to Mind and Life will be distributed as grants of $1,000,000 per year for three years, contingent upon annual review, with an aim to encourage the long-term sustainability of these new programs.
About the Mind & Life Institute
The Mind & Life Institute is a Hadley, MA-based nonprofit organization dedicated to building a scientific understanding of the mind through the investigation of contemplative practices in order to reduce suffering and promote well being. Mind and Life facilitates annual dialogues between neuroscientists, social scientists, contemplative scholars, and the Dalai Lama, and has produced a series of highly regarded books based on those dialogues.
Other Mind and Life programs include the Mind and Life Summer Research Institute and accompanying Varela Awards for contemplative scholarly research, the Mind and Life Contemplative Research Fellowship, a Visiting Scholars program and the International Symposia for Contemplative Studies.
