At the Comprehensive Blood and Cancer Center in Bakersfield, California, USA, many employees have learned Transcendental Meditation as part of a companywide wellness program offered by the center's director, oncologist Ravi Patel, M.D., to counteract the intense physical and emotional stress of their work.

Following are comments from Dr. Ravi Patel, CBCC founder:

''It's good to see how the people that have learned the TM are interacting. There's a deeper harmony, a much more easy ability to communicate and work with each other.

''Anybody can come and walk around our building, anytime actually, and they'll notice all the people are happy and the patients are happy and the staff is happy.

''The TM program for us is useful because it has allowed us to really streamline our focus in good patient care.''

Dr Patel's comments are featured on a seven-minute video documenting the positive impact the program has had on the whole atmosphere at the Center:
