The article features interviews by Irish TV with teachers and students in England and Ireland, about the benefits of the Transcendental Meditation Technique in the classroom.
A teacher at Maharishi School in England, where all students practise the technique, described its effect on their behaviour and approach to learning, compared to other schools where he had taught previously: 'In the lessons, they're really relaxed, much more relaxed than they are at any other school. They tend to be less stressed on the whole. Also they're more alert, more awake. That's a really good ground for teaching.' Another teacher sees the technique as 'the missing element in education. It acts as a vaccine against stress for the student,' promoting improvements in their concentration, memory, reasoning skills, and reaction time.
A second-year student at Trinity College recalled how Transcendental Meditation helped him several years ago, dealing with the stress of 'Leaving School Certificate' exams. He finds it helps even more now, 'particularly when the exams become more difficult, more arduous. I find that when I need to put even more hours into my study during the day, getting energy and relaxation from TM really helps.'
