[10/3 UPDATE: THIS EVENT IS POSTPONED DUE TO THE GOVERMENT SHUTDOWN. WE’LL ANNOUNCE WHEN IT’S BEEN RESCHEDULED.]
Dismayed by the federal government shut-down? Congressman Tim Ryan (D-OH) thinks mindfulness can help make Congress – and the rest of us! – happier, healthier, and more productive. This Friday at noon in Old Cabell Hall on Main Grounds, the U.Va. Contemplative Sciences Center (CSC) is hosting a talk by Rep. Ryan on “The Quiet Revolution: How Mindfulness is Transforming Our Country.” Cabell Hall is at the far end of the Main Grounds lawn, opposite the Rotunda (map). You can register ahead for free on the CSC’s website, or get free tickets at the door.
