Robin Carnes and Karen Soltes have met with Congressman Tim Ryan in order to promote and provide mindful mediation practice to Capitol Hill. Ryan along with Rep. Tony Cardenas (D-California) formed “The Quiet Caucus,” offering a weekly group meditation for interested members of Congress. A separate weekly meeting is held for congressional staffers.
Congressman Ryan promotes these sessions as an antidote to the high levels of stress and distraction facing the staffers. Approximately 30-40 staffers attend each session.
Yahoo and ABC news interviewed Congressman Tim Ryan and it features a short clip of Robin Carnes leading one of the meditation sessions:
