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?
