Welcome to the 16 Guidelines website

The 16 Guidelines are direct and practical tools for making life better. They provide a simple, robust framework for reflecting on the ways we think, speak, act and find meaning in life, and for creating the causes of true happiness and fulfillment.

The 16 Guidelines is also a versatile and evolving educational toolkit, consisting of workshops and resources for all ages. The 16 Guidelines promote mindfulness and wisdom in schools, with youth, in healthcare, prisons, the workplace and the home. Launched in 2006, the 16 Guidelines are already in action in 23 countries worldwide, and growing.

The 16 Guidelines are an initiative of The Foundation for Developing Compassion and Wisdom, an international non-profit organisation. The Foundation aims to help people everywhere to develop their innate capacity for compassion and wisdom in order to live a happy, peaceful and beneficial life.
