Project Mindlab gets underway in The Netherlands

by Peter Leslie

My deep motivation to bring the 16 Guidelines to teenagers is inspired by The Dalai Lama, an idea from Mind and Life co-founder Francisco Varela, and an exercise based on the guideline “Principles” which was created by Patrizia Gavoni, Zandra Mantilla, Simona Azzarello and myself.

The actual idea for Project Mindlab was born in October 2010 at Institut Vajrayogini in Lavaur, France, during a 16 Guidelines for Life level 2 workshop. It combines yoga, mindfulness, 16 Guidelines, and the 7 Steps from Creating Compassionate Cultures, and aims to educate, motivate, and illuminate teenagers in what it is to be human. At the beginning of this school year, September 2012, I was given the opportunity to actually set the project in motion at the Orion Lyceum school, situated in Breda in the Netherlands.
