Consciousness and sustainability
2 December 2016 - Niloofar Mofrad grew up in Iran and learned Transcendental Meditation at the age of 15. She soon found out about Maharishi University of Management in the USA, and became fascinated with the idea of attending a school where students focus on the growth of their consciousness along with academic subjects. During her studies in sustainable living at MUM, Niloofar became interested in the philosophy of sustainability and its implications for ecological and social transformation. To combine that with her interest in Maharishi Vedic Science, she decided to graduate with an individualized major in sustainability and consciousness. 'Niloofar is a deep thinker,' said one of her faculty at MUM. 'She has had the great insight that consciousness is primary in all areas of life, and that it contains the critical solutions for creating a sustainable world.' (more)

Transcending my Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
30 November 2016 - Having suffered from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder for many years, Adam Delfiner began practising Transcendental Meditation. 'My experiences were nothing short of miraculous,' he says. 'As I continued my practice of Transcendental Meditation my life began to blossom. . . . I literally began to think more clearly and holistically.' He adds, 'It was not until I began the regular practice of the TM technique, that I and no one or nothing else began to take control over my own life. . . . I began to experience more and more of my own Self, my own life.' (more)

Ramayana: The hero's journey and the quest for enlightenment
27 November 2016 - Linda Egenes shares what she learned about Transcendental Meditation as 'a way to effortlessly unfold the hero or heroine inside us - a way to reach for our highest self.' While teaching writing to a 'lively group of octogenarians' she found 'that every life is heroic, every journey a quest for growth and a better way of living.' But how can we be the heroes of our own stories? She concludes that 'the most important thing I can do for myself and others around me is to stay rested [in order] to think more clearly. Research shows that [TM] has an effect not only in [our] thinking more creatively and profoundly, thus making better decisions, but in creating more harmonious relationships and engaging in higher moral reasoning. In Ms. Egenes' abridged version of the Vedic epic The Ramayana: A New Retelling of Valmiki's Ancient Epic - Complete and Comprehensive co-authored with Dr. Kumuda Reddy, she describes how the heroes 'invariably reach for the highest course of action, the one that will bring happiness to everyone around them.'

Can Blacks and Police Find Inner Peace? reports
24 November 2016 - 'If war refugees with PTSD can find rapid relief from stress through Transcendental Meditation practice, how much easier will it be for both police and inner city African-Americans to find inner peace?', write the authors of an article in TM is described as an evidence-based strategy to address the underlying buildup of stress in communities 'that inevitably erupts into violence'. According to recent research, more than 50% of people with PTSD who learn TM are symptom-free in 30-105 days. Police practising TM have found increased stability in stressful situations, better health, and greater resiliency to stress. It is a 'well-documented protocol for reducing stress and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) . . . . that will prevent and help neutralize this buildup of stress, anger, and violence in individuals and in society as a whole.'

Healing from within: David Lynch Foundation partnership with New York City brings relief for victims of domestic violence
22 November 2016 - Thanks to a partnership formed several years ago between the David Lynch Foundation (DLF) and the New York City Mayor's Office to Combat Domestic Violence, victims were able to learn Transcendental Meditation, an effortless practice repeatedly proven to help alleviate PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), at the city's Family Justice Centers at no cost. 'While the circumstances under which I meet my students are painful, I love the work I do,' says Rachael Katz, lead teacher for the DLF's Women's Health Initiative. 'To witness their resilience and healing is nothing short of a complete joy.' Progressively, she says, the calmer and more resilient style of functioning for mind and body promoted by TM practice 'naturally empowers the survivor to make the best choices for herself'. (more)

Transcendental Meditation: A resource for reducing stress among law enforcement professionals
20 November 2016 - Dr Martha Batorski, a recognized speaker on the topic of leadership development and stress reduction, calls for the use of healing strategies like Transcendental Meditation to 'reduce the effects of stress on those who serve and protect - male and female - so they may better draw upon inner resources of calm to de-escalate situations and serve as true role models in our society.' 'Policewomen,' she writes in TM for Women, 'have naturally contributed to a new paradigm in law enforcement, bringing qualities to the field . . . that include greater empathy and ability to defuse situations and a larger field of awareness during stressful situations.' With as many as 18 per cent of police officers suffering from PTSD, and a higher rate among policewomen, there is increasing interest in the scientifically proven effectiveness of TM in greatly reducing PTSD symptoms and increasing resiliency to stressful situations.

19 November 2016 - Susi Halley's life-long dream was to study at Maharishi University of Management. An email from MUM describing an online master's programme in Maharishi Vedic Science that was 'available to anyone anywhere' was 'the perfect opportunity and perfect subject matter', she says. 'For anyone who thirsts for knowledge and the highest experience of learning, MVS online is the programme.' Practising Transcendental Meditation has helped Susi academically, giving her the ability 'to comprehend and absorb knowledge effortlessly'. Another unexpected benefit is 'the close-knit community that has developed among the students. Even though we are situated all over the world, we get to know each other through the forums and webinars. . . . everyone has a unique perspective.' (more)

Maharishi University of Management alumna Genevra Bell: An entrepreneurial artist
16 November 2016 - Genevra Bell never thought she would one day make a living drawing animals. It all began when she moved to England after graduating from Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, with a degree in fine arts. Her specialization in ceramics brought her to a job in a Cumbria pottery studio, but soon she turned to painting and illustration. This grew to animal portraits, cards, calendars, and an expanding business - she recently added design licensing to her services. Now back in Fairfield as a teaching assistant and administrator for the MUM art department, she says, 'My experience in the art department was amazing and that's why I wanted to come back.' She recently won a Minted and Pottery Barn Kids Design challenge contest with her poster, The Animalphabet. (more)
