Pioneering research now underway at the oldest private military college in the USA—Norwich University in Northfield, Vermont—has found that the Transcendental Meditation technique provides an effective tool to assist students enrolled in a rigorous program of academics and military training.
In a recent video, Dr. Richard W. Schneider, Rear Admiral USCGR (Ret.), the president of Norwich University, along with his students, faculty, and researchers talk about their experience with the TM technique.
The results of the initial phase of a long-term, randomized, controlled study of cadets, investigating the effects of TM on psychological distress and resilience, were presented by Carole Bandy, Ph.D., Norwich professor of psychiatry and principal investigator, at a national summit on ''Resilience, the Brain and Meditation'' held in Washington, DC on May 3rd, 2012.
(See article ''VA testing whether meditation can help treat PTSD'' in The Washington Post.)
Dr. Bandy's research revealed that those trained in Transcendental Meditation experienced a decrease in anxiety, decreased perceived stress, decreased depression, increased resilience, increased global constructive thinking, and increased constructive behavioral coping.
Enjoy the full article, which features comments by some of the cadets about their positive results with Transcendental Meditation—including improved GPA (grade point average)—and by Dr. Schneider, on the Excellence in Action page.
