In this episode, we are welcoming Jamie Bristow. He is the former director of the Mindfulness
Initiative, a policy institute which was born out of a mindfulness teaching programme in the British Parliament.
Though he is still involved with the initiative, his main focus is now on sustainability work across various organisations. We spoke to him about his journey, the role of mindfulness in politics and how the climate crisis is, at heart, a crisis of relationship.
