Women have greater freedom, education and career opportunities than ever before, yet recent studies reveal that women are becoming increasingly less happy and are more susceptible to anxiety and depression.
Temporary joys of life
Perhaps the unhappiness results from too much emphasis on material, temporary joys and neglect of the inner life. Many women, in an attempt to have it all, are overloaded with demands of work, home and relationships and find there is seldom time for the experience of joy to well up on its own.
Transcendent source of happiness
Deep within, beyond thought, is the most settled state of awareness, a reservoir of creativity, intelligence and happiness. This field is said to be transcendental because it is not ordinarily available to the active, conscious mind.
The direct experience of this expansive consciousness satisfies the ceaseless quest for happiness and infuses joy into all one's outer perceptions. To experience it and unfold it in life, one must dive deep within.
TM refreshes the mind
During Transcendental Meditation practice, the attention goes beyond the surface, thinking mind and settles inward to experience restful alertness. In this state, the body gains profound relaxation, allowing deep-rooted tensions and anxieties to melt away, rejuvenating mind and body. The brain begins to function with greater coherence and efficiency, supporting a heightened, more expansive state of awareness.
Washing away stress
Accumulated stress in the nervous system clouds and restricts awareness and keeps us from being who we truly are. There are many approaches to stress management that help people cope. The TM technique does not merely help one manage anxieties and frustrations, it releases or dissolves the stresses through deep rest.
Experiencing happiness in the moment
With regular practice of the TM technique, women experience that they spontaneously find more happiness in the moment. With mind and emotions refreshed, a woman is naturally more present and engaged—and more available for others.
