This year's commencement address at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, will be delivered by Norman Rosenthal, distinguished Georgetown University Medical School psychiatrist, former senior researcher at the National Institute of Mental Health, and author of a new book coming out on June 2 about the Transcendental Meditation® program.

Titled Transcendence: Healing and Transformation Through Transcendental Meditation, the book is a powerful first-person account of Dr. Rosenthal's own journey of self-development—as well as a compelling chronicle of the healing and transformations he has witnessed among scores of his patients and A-list celebrities who were struggling with acute stress, anxiety, depression, heart disease, addiction, and learning disorders.

Dr. Rosenthal interweaves details about scientific research on Transcendental Meditation, in every instance showing how it explains the benefits his patients and friends are experiencing.

Topics include managing stress, treating anger and anxiety, ADHD, depression, addiction, school performance, achieving one's full potential, and harmony in society.

The book will be available* on and in bookstores.

During his 20 years at the National Institute of Mental Health, Dr. Rosenthal achieved renown for leading the team that described Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and that pioneered the use of light therapy to treat it.

He has also maintained a private practice in the Washington, D.C. area for the past 30 years, where he treats a wide variety of psychiatric problems using many forms of therapy.

He was awarded the prestigious Anna Monika Foundation Research prize for his contribution to research in treating depression and is the author or coauthor of over 200 professional articles and four popular books, including Winter Blues, The Emotional Revolution, St. John's Wort, and How to Beat Jet Lag.

Dr. Rosenthal currently serves as medical director and CEO of Capital Clinical Research Associates in Rockville, Maryland, where he directs clinical trials in both pharmaceuticals and complementary and alternative medicine.

He has appeared on the Today show, Good Morning America, National Public Radio, and many other forums.
