More than 600 students and professors at 12 universities and colleges in Israel recently enjoyed presentations that graphically demonstrated the coherence-creating effects of the Transcendental Meditation Technique on the brain. The lectures were given by Dr Fred Travis, Director of the Center for Brain, Consciousness, and Cognition at Maharishi University of Management (M.U.M.), Fairfield, Iowa, USA, during his 12-day tour of the country.

With the help of Sheer-el Cohen, Transcendental Meditation Teacher and recent M.U.M. graduate, Dr Travis conducted live EEG demonstrations for the audience at each of his lectures, to illustrate the effects of Transcendental Meditation on the brain, including increased brainwave coherence during the practice. In addition, he compared the effects of TM to those of other meditation practices.

Among the universities Dr Travis visited were Weizmann Institute of Science, an international scientific research center located in Rehovot, Israel; Hebrew University in Jerusalem; Tel Aviv University; the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya; and Tel Hai College in Upper Galilee, said Dr Alex Kutai, National Director of Invincible Israel for the Global Country of World Peace, describing Dr Travis's tour on 23 December 2008.

Dr Travis had many personal meetings with Israeli scientists, who have since expressed interest in collaborating with him on researching the effects of Transcendental Meditation on the brain, behavior, and psychology.

Many students asked to be notified of upcoming TM introductory lectures. At Tel Hai College, where an audience of 270 students and faculty gathered for Dr Travis's lecture, TM Teachers have already made efforts to begin a Transcendental Meditation Club on campus, which will offer weekly introductory and advanced lectures on the programme.

Global Good News will continue coverage of Dr Travis' tour in the coming days.
