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 the interview, 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.

In Transcendence, 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.
