The Mind Institute is striving to create a community of scholars and researchers, including neuroscientists, psychologists, educators and philosophical and contemplative thinkers around the study of mindful awareness and compassion. Drawing from such varied disciplines – from etiological approaches that examine the evolutionary roots of compassion to skills training programs for strengthening mindfulness to neuroscientific studies of the brain mechanisms, as well as the ‚warm glow‘ feelings that reinforce helping others and genuine happiness, MC is working to gain a deep understanding of mind qualities and human behaviors in all its beauty and its richness.
What kind of areas Mind Institute covers?
Education – including courses and workshops that teach techniques to cultivate awareness, compassion and altruism cultivation training programs
Research – including basic and clinical neuro-science, psychology, sociology, neuroeconomics, genetics, public health, education and other relevant approaches
Integration of research findings, including public lectures, meetings and conferences with scientists and other scholars that focus on awareness and compassion to share knowledge, creating platform for collaborations, stimulate further study of compassion and further building of practices based on research outcomes.
„You must be the change you want to see in the world.“
~ Mahatma Gandhi
Strives do not bring you anywhere
Words can’t say much
Thoughts won’t understand
Stop and settle
Feel this moment
Your live is nowhere else
Playful and unique
Always with you, yet ungraspable.
Inviting, refreshing and warmth
~ Karolína Pospíšilová
