Congressman Tim Ryan is the author of A Mindful Nation: How a Simple Practice Can Help Us Reduce Stress, Improve Performance, and Recapture the American Spirit.
Everywhere we turn we face daunting challenges as a nation-in schools and hospitals, in the environment and the economy, and in our communities. The good news is that across the nation people are beginning to face these challenges in a new way based upon our innate capacity to be mindful and caring. Starting with the scientific evidence of the benefits of mindfulness and compassion practices, and sharing many inspiring examples from every sector in our society, Congressman Ryan presents us with an inspiring and hopeful view of what we can do, right here and right now, to reinvigorate our core American values and transform and revitalize our communities.
