The best proactive approach to prevent terrorism
1 April 2019 - 'If wars start in the minds of men, then peace logically ought to start there as well,' concludes a recent response to the Philippine Defence Secretary's call for a high alert following terrorist activity. Lt. Gen. Clarence E. McKnight, Jr. (US Army Ret.), Maj. Gen. (Ret.) Kulwant Singh, UYSM, PhD, and Dr David Leffler urge adoption of an 'unconventional yet highly effective approach with a proven scientific record for diffusing terrorism and violence . . . called Invincible Defense Technology (IDT), based on the non-religious Transcendental Meditation (TM) programme.' For a minimal investment of time and resources, the Philippine military could train 1,500 experts in IDT - 'a ''prevention brigade'' whose members meditate twice a day to defuse the deeply rooted regional stresses and hatred that are the cause of conflict'.

Getting a Masters degree on the road
28 March 2019 - Maharishi University of Management student Esther Fontaine is a professional driver taking MUM's online MA in Maharishi Vedic Science programme. While driving a truck across the country for a year, Esther found a way to keep up with her classwork: she listened to the lectures on the road, took notes during her breaks, and did her homework at the end of her ten-hour shifts. She was excited to discover all the scientific studies on the Transcendental Meditation programme. 'The logical correlation of a spiritual reality that manifested through a scientific avenue was what I've looked for my whole life,' she said. (more)

China: Maharishi University of Management now offering MBA, Management PhD at university in Shanghai
25 March 2019 - Maharishi University of Management's graduate programmes in management are now being offered in Shanghai, China, in collaboration with Shanghai Jiao Tong University, the oldest university in China with about 40,000 students.

'World-Class Brain for Success in Life' connected principles of the Science and Technology of Consciousness to management. Students learned about the levels of the mind and transcendence, and how this not only benefits the individual but also the organization. 'They appreciated how Transcendental Meditation gives organizations an extra edge,' said MUM faculty member Dr Fred Travis. (more)

Demystifying happiness: At our core we are pure love, pure happiness, pure bliss (Part one of a series)
22 March 2019 - 'What makes a person happy?' asks health writer Linda Egenes. 'It's not the actual situation we are in, good or bad, that determines happiness, but how we perceive it. As everyone knows, neither money nor fame can make a person happy. . . . The essence of who we are transcends our thoughts and emotions, our hopes and dreams: at our core we are pure love, pure happiness, pure bliss. Our twice-daily sessions of Transcendental Meditation give us the time and space to explore this part of ourselves, which can get lost in the hustle and bustle of daily life. The more this unseen part of our life emerges, the happier we are and the more we can spontaneously share that with others. . . . like a light bulb which, once lit, sheds light all around.' (more)

Celebrating 50 years of teaching Transcendental Meditation in African American communities, 1969–2019
18 March 2019 - From Los Angeles to Ethiopia and across the US: In 1969 a group of African American Transcendental Meditation teachers wanted to bring the TM programme directly to their communities. TM Founder Maharishi Mahesh Yogi supported this vision to form an organization dedicated to teaching the TM technique to communities of colour. The organization was called Transcendental Meditation Center (TMC), Inc., and its pioneering initiatives in education, health, and rehabilitation laid the groundwork for the successes of the David Lynch Foundation today. In celebration of TMC's 50th Anniversary and Black History Month, here is their remarkable story. (more)

Transcendental Meditation reduces compassion fatigue and improves resilience for nurses
14 March 2019 - Nurses can better cope with the burnout that's endemic to the profession by practising the Transcendental Meditation technique, according to a new study published recently in the Journal for Nurses in Professional Development. After four months of practice, standardized assessments found that nurses in the study had reductions in 'compassion fatigue' and burnout, and increases in compassion satisfaction and resilience. The study highlights the importance that self-care plays for professional development and longevity in nursing. 'We need to invest in our nursing staff and ensure that they have rewarding careers while also providing the best possible care for their patients,' said lead author Jennifer Bonamer, PhD, RN-BC, AHN-BC, Nursing Professional Development Specialist, Sarasota Memorial Health Care System in Florida, USA. 'A variety of studies have shown [TM's] effectiveness in reducing stress and promoting health and well-being.' (more)

New study shows Transcendental Meditation reduces PTSD in South African college students
7 March 2019 - A very high percentage of young people in South Africa suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and depression. A college that offers the Transcendental Meditation technique to its students found this approach helped reduce their symptoms. A study published last month in Psychological Reports showed that after 3.5 months of practising Transcendental Meditation, most of the 34 students at Maharishi Institute - all initially diagnosed with PTSD - went below clinical thresholds as measured by standard assessments. They also experienced relief from depression. A comparison group from the University of Johannesburg suffering from PTSD and depression received no treatment and continued to show no change in their symptoms throughout the study. This is the first study of its kind to show how Transcendental Meditation can reduce PTSD in college students. (more)
