Congressman Tim Ryan to join host Kathy Kirk on A New View of Life Radio Show

Voice America Talk Radio Network, Internet broadcasting pioneer, producing and syndicating online audio and video, today announced that US House of Representatives Congressman and author, Tim Ryan will join Kathy Kirk, host of A New View of Life radio program on the VoiceAmerica Variety Channel (http://www.voiceamerica.com/channel/246/voiceamerica-variety) Tuesday, July 3,  at 3 a.m. Pacific Time.

Congressman Ryan will discuss his new book, A Mindful Nation, where he discusses how the practice of mindful meditation has helped him in his duties as a Congressman and personally. Tim wrote A Mindful Nation to promote the value and benefits of slowing down, taking care of ourselves, being kind, and helping each other. He believes that when we embrace these values individually, it benefits us collectively; and America will be better off as a result.

The growing interest and support of mindfulness has turned into what Tim calls a "quiet revolution" - a peaceful movement championed by an amazing group of people who have dedicated their lives to bringing mindfulness to the masses. From teachers to therapists, soldiers to scientists, and from coaches to celebrities, A Mindful Nation chronicles the real-life stories and the life changes people have experienced from practicing mindfulness, something Tim does every day. As Tim's journey continues, his book invites people from every walk of life to embrace mindfulness and begin changing their lives—one breath at a time.

Tim Ryan's journey to discovering mindfulness started long before he realized he was even on the path. Growing up in his hometown of Niles, Ohio, Tim's first-generation Italian-American grandparents instilled in him the importance of values like kindness, generosity, warmth, compassion, and loyalty to family, church, community and country. Then a high school teacher revealed that the average human uses just a fraction of their full human potential, which had a profound effect on him as Tim felt he wasn't bringing his best self into the matters of his own life which sparked him on a quest to find ways to better himself.

He became a congressional aide with the U.S. House of Representatives and even went on to hold a law degree and became a rising star in politics. In 2000 Tim became one of the youngest state senators in Ohio history. At 29 Tim Ryan was sworn in as a U.S. Congressman.

In his five terms serving the people of Ohio, Tim came to be known as a passionate statesman, dutiful public servant and a skilled orator. He traveled the world, met presidents and prime ministers, but felt disconnected from his accomplishments and didn't know why. He felt as though his mind was either stuck in the past or fixed on the future, but never focused on the present. What he didn't know was that this journey was about to come to an important crossroads.

In November 2008 Tim's search for the truth led him to a five-day silent retreat in the Catskills where he experienced a breakthrough—mindfulness. “The runaway horses of my mind were pulled to a halt, and I just breathed in and out." He realized that what we see, hear, and think about in our mind has a direct effect on our bodies and that the connection between the two are important to our health and happiness. His world was forever changed; and he realized he was in a unique position to share this gift of mindfulness with all Americans.
