Event Info for “A Mindful Nation” Conversation Next Week (Newton, MA)

by mandy lipka

Do you feel it? The election took place only a couple of weeks ago. The lull in controversy and the end of the incredibly spiteful advertising offers great peace. No, the discussions aren’t over, but let’s take what we can get, shall we?

During the elections, you likely heard some chatter about the new book A Mindful Nation, written by Congressman Tim Ryan (Foreword by MA-and-mindfulness veteran Jon Kabat-Zinn). I haven’t tackled this one yet, but plan to take the mindful moment over the upcoming holidays.

I will be skipping the travel back to the east coast, but I hope any of you in the New England area will take advantage of the amazing opportunity to witness a conversation about the book with Ryan and Dr. Saki Santorelli. The event takes place in Newton on Monday, November 26 at 7pm EST.

Hopefully you will have relaxed your tryptophan-filled minds by then and some family members and loved ones will still be around to join you. It’s certainly worth the $10 which goes to scholarship funds of Newton Community Education and the Center for Mindfulness. For more details, visit this link to the email. If you attend, please share your thoughts below and check back for my review of this great conversation starter.
