Time Magazine calls congressman Tim Ryan a ‘rock star’

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — Area congressman Tim Ryan is getting star treatment over his practice of mindfulness.

The Niles Democrat called mindfulness a meditative practice that focuses on the present moment instead of worrying about the past or future.

Time Magazine’s latest cover story on the practice says Ryan is “a rock star among mindfulness evangelists.”

He has written a book on the practice and pitched it on Capitol Hill.

Ryan helped land a $1 million grant in 2009 for Youngstown and Warren schools to teach mindfulness to elementary students.
