Dr. Rosenthal's brilliant and distinguished career in the fields of medicine, clinical psychiatry, and as a pioneering researcher at the National Institutes of Mental Health (US) are the backdrop for his newest and arguably most important discovery—the profound healing effects for mind and body that can be gained through the Transcendental Meditation technique.

In this webinar, Dr. Rosenthal speaks about his personal journey as a scientist and physician that led him to research and experience first-hand the healing effects of meditation and the important role the TM program can play in ushering in a new paradigm of health in society.

Dr Rosenthal is a distinguished clinical professor of psychiatry at Georgetown University Medical School. He served for 20 years as a senior researcher at the National Institute of Mental Health. His research into seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and pioneering use of light therapy helped millions of people around the world.

Dr. Rosenthal's newest book, TRANSCENDENCE: Healing and Transformation Through Transcendental Meditation,* explores the value of this ancient technique for promoting better health and the development of full potential.

Dr. Rosenthal's broad-ranging book will appeal both to newcomers who want to know the basics about the TM technique, as well as seasoned meditators, wishing to broaden their knowledge and deepen their understanding about it.

By presenting a mix of fascinating stories, published research, and his own clinical and personal experience with Transcendental Meditation, Dr. Rosenthal illustrates the value of the TM program in promoting cardiac health, reducing anxiety and depression, and helping people who suffer from traumatic stress and addiction.

Dr. Rosenthal emphasizes that the TM technique can especially help highly successful people to live fuller and richer lives. He illustrates this in interviews with prominent meditators like Paul McCartney, Martin Scorsese, Moby, Russell Brand, and Laura Dern.

The webinar is offered as part of the Distinguished Lecture series by the Transcendental Meditation Programme in the United States.

* Tarcher-Penguin 2011, ISBN 9781585428731. Transcendence will be released June 2; the book is available now for pre-order.
