Ged Valente is the chairman of the Transcendental Meditation United Arab Emirates organisation, which organises classes in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. He believes TM should no longer be associated with Flower Power since many practitioners these days are high-flying professionals who use Transcendental Meditation to improve mental ability and workplace performance. . . .

''Professional people find it very useful to improve the functioning of their mind and it makes them more able to focus sharply,'' he contends. ''It increases intelligence, memory, creativity. You know, all these things have been documented by scientific research.'' . . .

Valente says its popularity is rapidly spreading to the United Arab Emirates, which he believes is due to the entrepreneurial spirit in this country. ''I think the reason for this is that people often come here to make money, to start new businesses,'' he says. ''These people are quite dynamic and they realise what TM can do to improve performance. Transcendental Meditation is fantastic in that area. It helps you reduce stress and gives energy and vitality.''
