There was a great article published on Sunday in the Columbus Dispatch about Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan (above), one of our heroes in the meditation movement (he also just happens to be one of the subjects of ON MEDITATION).
The article discusses Ryan's personal commitment to mindfulness meditation and how it has influenced his policy agenda, including bringing the benefits of meditation to schools.
Ryan spearheaded nearly $1 million in funding for a pilot program on a Social Emotional Learning curriculum including mindfulness meditation. The funding has been used to introduce meditation in schools, including a "peace corner" for children experiencing conflict in the classroom.
The subject of CHILDREN AND MEDITATION is very dear to our hearts. In fact, one of the goals of ON MEDITATION is to make sure the films reach children. That's why reason why we've pledged to give away ON MEDITATION to schools for every advance copy of ON MEDITATION that is backed on Kickstarter.
We've raised more than $13,000 since the start of our campaign. Please help us achieve our $50,000 goal by making a contribution today and spreading the word. Thank you for your support!
