Military turns to meditation for PTSD | The Promise of Mindfulness Meditation | Scoop.it
Over the past nine years, more than 2 million American soldiers have served in Iraq and Afghanistan. As many as several hundred thousand may now suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, experts say.
Kat Tansey's insight:

Living with constant stress takes it toll. This excellent article highlights the benefits of mindfulness meditation. Fifteen minutes a day can change your brain and your life.

Teaching Mindfulness to Military Families

Teaching Mindfulness to Military Families | The Promise of Mindfulness Meditation | Scoop.it

This is a brief, nicely done video of how one military officer is sharing meditation and mindfulness with military families stationed in Germany.  

 

I like the format of this class, particularly the part at the end where participants get to speak about how what they are learning affects their lives. Instead of everyone leaving the class to go their separate ways, this allows participants to develop a sense of a shared community, which reinforces their practice and their connection to the class.

In meditative mindfulness, Rep. Tim Ryan sees benefits for harried lives.

In meditative mindfulness, Rep. Tim Ryan sees benefits for harried lives. | The Promise of Mindfulness Meditation | Scoop.it

I was fortunate to see Congressman Tim Ryan from Ohio speak at the Wisdom 2.0 Conference in February. I bought an early copy of his book, "A Mindful Nation" in which he presents studies on the effectiveness of mindfulness training in the military, healthcare, and schools.

 

Tim Ryan is stumping not for votes but for his book -- to awaken the American public to the many benefits of meditation and mindfulness. He is a fresh face in the mindfulness circuit, and a passionate, well informed advocate.

 

Read "A Mindful Nature" and share it with others -- it, to me, is a beacon of hope and a call for action. Where can you go to introduce others to mindfulness practice and make a difference?
