This new way is based on the timeless and universal practice of mindfulness, the natural capabilities of our brains and minds, and the core values of self-reliance, stick-to-it-iveness and getting the job done. And it's manifesting in every sector of society - it's helping sick people work with their pain, school children improve their learning, veterans heal from trauma and CEOs become more inclusive and effective leaders. All these benefits - and more - are supported by scientific research on mindfulness that is regularly reported by the mainstream media.
In A Mindful Nation, Congressman Tim Ryan - a thoughtful, committed leader- takes this story about the benefits of mindfulness to the next level. He connects the dots between what's happening with mindfulness in the classrooms, hospitals, boardrooms, research labs and army bases across the world by sharing his interactions with experts in education, defence, health care, criminal justice and the environment. A Mindful Nation paints a picture of emerging solutions that both benefit the reader and address the societal difficulties we are facing. Ryan's folksy, warm and encouraging voice uplifts us and shows that there is something we can do right here and right now to help ourselves and our country.
Both inspiring and pragmatic, A Mindful Nation shows how the benefits of mindfulness apply to the current challenges that affect each of us in our own lives and in our communities, and thus have implications for our society as a whole. With a hard-nosed understanding of politics, government budgets and what it takes to get something done, Ryan connects a practical approach - lead with the science, show the savings and show how this can help us educate our children to be competitive in the world arena - with a hopeful vision for how mindfulness can reinvigorate our core American values and transform and revitalise our communities.
