The Mason Center for Consciousness and Transformation is hosting Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan on Sunday, September 30 at 4:00 p.m. in Harris Theater on Mason’s Fairfax Campus Harris Theater. Congressman Ryan will be giving a talk on his inspiring new book, A Mindful Nation: How a Simple Practice Can Help Us Reduce Stress, Improve Performance, and Recapture the American Spirit.
In A Mindful Nation, Congressman Ryan (D-OH) explores the science of mindfulness and shares powerful stories from the field, showing how this simple practice is helping schoolchildren improve their ability to learn, veterans heal from trauma, and CEOs become more effective leaders. The book also provides concrete tips for how to incorporate mindfulness into your life today. With a hard-nosed understanding of politics and what it takes to get something done, Ryan combines a practical approach with a hopeful vision for how mindfulness can help reinvigorate American values.
In this talk, Congressman Ryan will discuss how the timeless practice of mindfulness can help Americans reduce stress, improve their performance, and recapture the can-do American spirit. By slowing down and paying attention, Ryan says, we can create a dynamic new vision for America—together.
