Information about A Mindful Nation by Tim Ryan:  “In one of the most optimistic books to come out of Washington during these trying times, Congressman Tim Ryan presents us with an inspiring and hopeful view of our country's future-and a roadmap for how to get there.  People are beginning to take action in a new way: they are slowing down, paying attention, and gaining an awareness of the inner resources at their disposal. This new way is based on the timeless and universal practice of mindfulness, the natural capabilities of our brains and minds, and the core American values of self-reliance, stick-to-it-iveness, and getting the job done.  In A Mindful Nation, Congressman Tim Ryan-an all-American guy from the heartland who is also a thoughtful, committed leader paints a picture of emerging solutions that both benefit the reader and address the societal difficulties we are facing.” (Book description from
