Personal Foul--Improving our reaction to stress
13 October 2014 - 'It's not that we can expect people never to be anxious. What we would hope for is an optimal stress response, for real emergencies, so that we can deal with them effectively,' writes Vanessa Vidal, National Director of the TM Program for Women in the USA. She adds, 'But then, the stress response, and our stress hormones should normalize, so that we aren't chronically anxious, worried, obsessive or aggressive.' In her blog for the Transcendental Meditation for Women site, she reasons, 'while we of course need to help the victims of domestic violence recover, and the Transcendental Meditation technique has been documented to be very effective in this regard, the goal should really be to prevent domestic violence altogether. TM can play an enormous role in inoculating our society against the many problems that grow out of chronic stress and anxiety.' (more)

I had sometimes wondered what effect TM would have on women in such circumstances. The effect of TM is actually quite profound.'

Transcendental Meditation: Disentangling yourself from the web of stress and heart disease
8 October 2014 - TM offers a reader-friendly compilation of recent studies on health benefits from practising Transcendental Meditation.
