On 27 April 2006 Arizona Star Daily reported:
Educators and researchers recently held a press conference in Arizona, USA to promote the practice of the Transcendental Meditation Programme in schools throughout Arizona as a means of reducing stress in student life.
It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring
fulfilment to the field of education.
The article reported that 'Children and young adults have plenty to be stressed about in the 21st century,' and those hosting the conference say that the Transcendental Meditation Programme is the solution.
The interviews included in the article indicate that the idea is appealing to local teachers and students alike.
Rhonda Kaufman, a kindergarten teacher who has practised the Transcendental Meditation Technique for 33 years, said: 'The calmness that they achieve in meditation would hopefully carry over throughout the day so they would be able to solve things, do better in their social lives.'
The article also included responses from students: 'It sounds pretty neat,' said Mountain View High School junior Martin Quiroz, 17. 'I'm not a yoga guy, but I could sit there and meditate.' His best friend, Spenser Andrews, also a 17-year-old Mountain View junior, said a lot of students could use a little time to recharge from the stress of homework and jobs.
According to the article, the Transcendental Meditation Technique has been used by some US schools for close to ten years.
Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total
Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
