The article features the benefits homeless teens are finding as a result of the Transcendental Meditation program, recently reported by NBC News.
Children of the Night is a homeless shelter located in Van Nuys, California that for more than three decades has been dedicated to assisting children between the ages of 11 and 17 who have been victims of exploitation.
For the past 16 months, Children of the Night has partnered with the David Lynch Foundation to provide another kind of stability to the children—inner calm and peace through the Quiet Time/Transcendental Meditation Program.
''I've done the meditation for a year,'' said a 17-year-old resident. ''It helps me realize the goals that I actually want to achieve. If I get scared, or nervous, or frustrated, I don't leave right off the bat now. It's just brought me a well of calmness that nothing else has been able to provide.''
Dr. Lois Lee, founder and president of Children of the Night, said that her own TM practice had a similar effect, enabling her to clarify strategies for her long-frustrated dream of expanding Children of the Night's programs beyond Los Angeles.
