The Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, and Newton Community Education are pleased to present an evening of mindfulness with Congressman Tim Ryan, author of the acclaimed book A Mindful Nation: How a Simple Practice Can Help Us Reduce Stress, Improve Performance, and Recapture the American Spirit. Congressman Ryan will share the story of how he first encountered mindfulness, and what he  continues to encounter and learn while travelling the country and speaking with people from all walks of life engaged in the practice and work of mindfulness. "Imagine a world where we all took a few moments and sat to watch what we were doing in our own envrionment… The web of life is complex. It's hard to sort out how it all works… there are no easy answers, but I do have the conviction that mindfulness can help…" - A Mindful Nation by Congressman Tim Ryan


Building a Mindful Nation

Americans have experienced tough times lately—economic difficulty and uncertainty, the damaging effects of fighting two wars, a fractious political climate, and more. Amidst these tough times, though, a quiet revolution has been gathering momentum. People all over the nation have been searching for and finding ways to live more mindfully. And they are bringing the proven beneficial effects of the practices that cultivate mindfulness into schools, hospitals, doctor’s offices, the military, and other vital institutions in our country. Congressman Tim Ryan talks about how this revolutionary work can help our citizens reduce stress, improve their performance, and recapture the can-do American spirit. We are building a more mindful nation.
