US Representative from Ohio Tim Ryan, and author of A MINDFUL NATION: How a Simple Practice Can Help Us Reduce Stress, Improve Performance, and Recapture the American Spirit is offering a free web seminar today at 5 p.m. EDT. He will discuss his book, his personal experience with mindfulness, and how mindfulness is making its way into schools, medicine, and other facets of society.
Ryan maintains a daily mindfulness practice and talks about how mindfulness has the potential to make a tremendous difference in society:

Our soldiers are suffering too much, parents and teachers, all down the line… and now’s the time for us to implement this.”
