Why Support MLE? We are Effective.

Mind & Life Europe’s lodestar is the shared vision of the Dalai Lama and Francisco Varela, as it was set out at the first Mind & Life Dialogue in 1987. This vision aims to create a new field of dialogue between the sciences and contemplative traditions. This dialogue shapes and expands our understanding of who we are as humans, and addresses how we can create a world that is more sustainable for the generations to come.

There are no simple solutions to global challenges—inner and systemic transformation leading to change necessitates careful work and dialogue. We need to bring the best of scienceethics and our inner worlds to the forefront of human activities and interactions on this planet.

Since our inception, the Mind & Life Institute and Mind & Life Europe have collectively been a field-defining, ground-breaking initiative, involving the most cutting-edge scientists and contemplative leaders from around the world. Our purpose is to initiate change in how science works as a field, to advance our understanding of the mind, and to explore how we as human beings can develop our inner capacities for change, for both the sake of our individual well-being and for the common good.

How Can You Support Us? It’s Much Needed.

As we are a not-for-profit organisation, we are running on limited resources, which means we require support in order for our impactful work to continue. Should you wish to support us, you may designate your contribution to any of our projects or it may be marked as undesignated, in which case we will allocate your funding based on the specific needs of the projects in the current year.

If you are interested and would like to receive more information, please send an email to Gábor Karsai, Managing Director of MLE, at gabor.karsai@mindandlife-europe.org.

We would be happy to arrange a call to discuss support further and answer any questions you may have.

We are grateful for your generous contribution in advance.
