The Album features a recently published research study by lead author Dr Nidich and colleagues, which revealed that women with breast cancer experienced markedly reduced stress and improved quality of life through regular practice of the Transcendental Meditation Programme.

The two-year study, 'A Randomized Controlled Trial of the Effects of Transcendental Meditation on Quality of Life in Older Breast Cancer Patients', was published last fall in the peer-reviewed journal Integrative Cancer Therapies. It was conducted by the Center for Healthy Aging at Saint Joseph Hospital, in collaboration with the Institute for Health Services, Research and Policy Studies at Northwestern University; the Department of Psychology at Indiana State University; and the Institute for Natural Medicine and Prevention at Maharishi University of Management, of which Dr Nidich is Associate Director.

'We think that, taken as a whole, this study will be the first of hopefully many studies in the area of cancer', and that breast cancer patients—both newly diagnosed and long-term survivors—will be able to benefit from the Transcendental Meditation Programme, Dr Nidich said.
