Mr Shapiro mentioned other areas where TM is applied, saying, 'There are more than one million children in 13 countries under the auspices of the Catholic Church who have signed an agreement to learn TM.

Nature finds a way
23 June 2016 - Vanessa Vidal, US Director of Transcendental Meditation for Women, writes of her childhood in New Mexico, USA where her family was out-of-doors as much as time allowed. She says that it was only 'when I learned Transcendental Meditation that I realized that Nature is not just to be found outside of ourselves but within our minds and bodies and all that exists in the universe . . . Nature inspires us, propels us, nourishes us and guides us -- it is the most powerful evolutionary force of life.' She continues that as women -- protective of the most fine-feeling level, 'we need to nourish, to uplift -- and the gentleness in our nature finds a path to those around us. I found early in life that deep-enough rest is necessary for me to be in my most generous state of mind and emotions.' Ms Vidal upholds that TM is the most valuable way of reducing tiredness and stress, that restrictions melt during the practise of TM and that, 'our words and actions are beautiful and most effective when they're wrapped in love.'
