Living at the peak: How to experience bliss in everyday life
12 February 2016 - Studies by Dr. Fred Travis, director of the Center for Brain, Consciousness, and Cognition at Maharishi University of Management, have found that Transcendental Meditation practitioners have greater EEG coherence and greater presence of alpha waves which has been shown to promote a more efficiently functioning brain. Dr. Travis says: 'The experience of the transcendent is not unique to TM practitioners or peak performers; it's unique to human beings. It's what we experience when the activity of feeling and thinking and perception settle down, and the mind experiences its most expanded state of awareness. It's the experience of pure unbounded consciousness, and it's available to anyone.' Dr Travis's research is referenced in an article by Vanessa Vidal, National Director of Transcendental Meditation for Women in the US. (more)

Transcendental Meditation and improved health for older women
11 February 2016 - February is 'heart health month' in the US, and Amy Ruff, national director of TM for Nurses, highlights research indicating that 'the Transcendental Meditation (TM) program may reduce the cortisol response to a metabolic stressor and is therefore a way of reducing disease risk in older women'. Lower cortisol response, she explains, may reflect improved physiological functioning which relates to the disease-preventing effects of TM practice in older women. 'Often we are unable to change the stressors in our environment, but we can change the way that we react to the stress. Putting aside 20 minutes twice a day to do this scientifically verified meditation technique is a very small investment to insure decreased risk of heart attack and stroke.' (more)

Maharishi Ayur-Veda resources offer knowledge, treatment, training
9 February 2016 - In addition to reducing stress, Transcendental Meditation develops integrated brain functioning and promotes wellness. A natural adjunct to the essential value of practising TM--allowing the mind to experience its most silent level--is Maharishi Ayur-Veda, the 'Science of Life', which further enlivens the unlimited inner intelligence of mind and body. In addition to making Transcendental Meditation available throughout the world, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi worked with the world's foremost Ayurvedic physicians to develop a systematic presentation of Ayurvedic knowledge and health care. There are many online resources and centres in many countries for knowledge, treatment, research, and training in Maharishi Ayur-Veda natural health care. (more)

Important parenting advice: Get your kids to practise Transcendental Meditation
8 February 2016 - A recent article highlights Transcendental Meditation as an effective means to alleviate rising stress, anxiety, and dissatisfaction among young people. 'Twenty-three per cent of teens have anxiety,' said Mario Orsatti, Co-Director of the David Lynch Foundation Center for Leadership Performance. 'Children as young as 6 and 7 have learning disorders, and all of it is stress-related.' TM has been proven to help kids of any age to excel--improving both emotional well-being and academic abilities; it has brought dramatic reductions in suspensions and other negative school behaviours. Mr Orsatti explains that the technique is easy to learn and practise: 'It's as automatic as eating an orange to get vitamin C. You don't need to believe in the vitamin; you just get it.' (more)

Transcendental Meditation: More than a stress buster - Huffington Post
7 February 2016 - 'Most people think of the Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique as an effective way to reduce stress. Hundreds of scientific research studies show that TM can help improve all aspects of physical, mental, and emotional well-being and verify that it is the most effective technique available to reduce anxiety,' writes Ann Purcell in The Huffington Post. 'However, very few people are aware of the ultimate benefit of TM, which extends far beyond mere stress reduction. TM is a direct means to fully unfold one's innate potential -- enlightenment.'
