Maharishi University of Management's International Journal of Mathematics and Consciousness
25 May 2018 - Maharishi University of Management's online journal, the International Journal of Mathematics and Consciousness, was launched with the goal of examining consciousness from the point of view of mathematics. The inspiration for the journal came from Professor Tony Nader, MD, PhD, MARR, who has written numerous books on the expression of Veda and the Vedic literature in the human physiology. Dr. Nader is both the founder and editor-in-chief of the journal. The journal's inaugural issue featured a paper by Dr. Nader, 'Consciousness Is All There Is: A Mathematical Approach with Applications' - the beginning of a series of papers aimed at solving the problem of how the physical universe emerges from consciousness. The journal welcomes articles from all mathematicians and scientists, presenting their theories of consciousness using the rigorous approach of mathematics. Maharishi University of Management is the journal's hosting institution. (more)

Uganda: Empowering women from within through Transcendental Meditation
23 May 2018 - Leslee Goldstein had a deep desire to do something fully worthy of her PhD in Vedic Science from Maharishi University of Management. In a collaboration with Brenda Nakalembe, director of United Women's Platform for Empowerment and Development (UWOPED), and Ugandan teachers of TM through the African Women and Girls Association for Total Knowledge (AWAGO), a group of impoverished mothers in Kampala learned the Transcendental Meditation technique in their native language, and participated in a research project to evaluate the results. 'They have huge resilience, huge endurance,' Dr Goldstein said. 'This is the lot they were given in life and somehow, when given the opportunity to do something, TM helped them to do something for themselves, by themselves. We call it empowerment from within.'

David Lynch curates a weekend festival including films, music, and Transcendental Meditation - Vanity Fair reports
21 May 2018 - The third-annual, two-day Festival of Disruption was held for the first time in New York on 19-20 May at Brooklyn Steel, featuring panels, film screenings, musical guests, and lectures on Transcendental Meditation. As in years past, proceeds went directly to the David Lynch Foundation, which teaches Transcendental Meditation to inner-city youths, veterans, and survivors of domestic abuse. Bob Roth, CEO of the foundation, explained in his opening remarks, 'Look what's going on in the world today. Constant upheaval. Constant disruptions. . . . Inside, we do things to access our own reservoir of creativity and resilience.' As Roth and David Lynch, his longtime friend and fellow practitioner, see it, TM holds the power to 'disrupt narrowness of thinking, prejudice, and bias'. (more)

Can Transcendental Meditation prevent school violence?
20 May 2018 - There is a long process of stress and tension building before violence actually occurs, health writer Linda Egenes explains. Stress is now understood as the major cause of most mental health disorders, including severe teen depression, which is highly correlated with teen violence. Now in many countries, a simple solution is being implemented that not only helps protect kids in school, but entire neighborhoods from violence - Transcendental Meditation, which research has found to be effective in improving brain functioning and reducing stress, anxiety, and depression. Egenes proposes TM as a method to stop school violence - 'by calming the mind, mitigating stress and preventing anxiety and depression, TM can keep the pot from boiling over.' (more)

Maharishi Vastu home, organic farm featured in Westchester County, New York
17 May 2018 - With the help of an architect versed in Maharishi Vastu, or ancient Vedic principles of architecture, the owner built a stunning 5,000-square-foot home northeast of New York City, reports LoHud (New York). Maharishi Vastu architecture ensures that a building will have only nourishing influences on its occupants. This results from the use of several key natural law-based, Vedic principles. Then she set out to create an organic farm and orchard on the nearly 5-acre property. Each year, Amba Farms yields nearly 10,000 pounds of produce; some goes to local restaurants for farm-to-table dining, but much is donated to local food pantries. There are also eggs from chickens and nearly 100 fruit trees. (more)
