Scientific research on the Transcendental Meditation Programme shows increased EEG coherence during the practice.
Dr Michael Dillbeck, an expert on Transcendental Meditation research and one of the editors of Scientific Research on Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation Programme: Collected Papers, Volumes 5 and 6, presented two such studies.
The studies showed broadband EEG coherence—'that is, EEG coherence measured over many frequencies and also over all parts of the scalp,' Dr Dillbeck said.
The first study, included in Volume 5, showed that 'during periods of transcendental consciousness there was a very high increase in EEG coherence'.
The second study, conducted by neuroscientist Dr Fred Travis, Director of the Center for Brain, Consciousness, and Cognition at Maharishi University of Management, was originally published in 1990 in the International Journal of Neuroscience, and is featured in Volume 6.
Examining EEG coherence in those practising the advanced Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, including Yogic Flying, Dr Travis found a great increase in coherence just before the body lifts into the air.
In the coming days, Global Good News will continue to feature Dr Dillbeck's report highlighting studies from Volume 6 of Scientific Research on Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation Programme: Collected Papers.
