Actor Hugh Jackman: 'Transcendental Meditation has helped me in every way, immeasurably.'
23 September 2017 - Eight months into practising Transcendental Meditation, actor Hugh Jackman had a very clear thought one day: 'Hang on! Meditation is the centre of it all, where all activities can spring from the deepest well possible. If I act or parent or be a husband or throw a baseball or wash up, if I do it after meditating, it's a whole different activity.' Since then Jackman has not made it a secret how much TM has impacted his life. 'I would say possibly equally to how marriage and kids did - I would put it right up there, in terms of things that have affected my life.' Describing how TM has helped him excel as an actor and deal with the high level of stress in his profession, he says: 'Your only tools you really have are being present, being clear, and listening. So, it helped me in every way, immeasurably.' (more)

How transcending optimizes your brain: Revolutionary TM research advanced the science of human potential

Do we experience a new state of consciousness that's different from waking, dreaming, or sleeping? If so, how does that help us realize our highest human potential? 'These were some of the questions that our group of international researchers were trying to answer in the 1970s,' writes David Orme-Johnson, PhD, one of the principal researchers on the Transcendental Meditation technique worldwide, with over 100 publications in peer-reviewed journals. 'Based at Maharishi European Research University (MERU) in the Swiss and French Alps, we were on a quest to create a scientific portrait of Transcendental Consciousness' - the state experienced during practice of the TM technique.

6 September 2017 - For women professionals, the prefrontal cortex - the 'CEO of the brain' - is 'our greatest resource, allowing for intuition, broad planning, and creative problem solving', write Vanessa Vidal and Janet Hoffman, national board members of TM for Women in the USA. 'To enliven its function is the best preparation for achievement, high performance and success. Transcendental Meditation has been shown repeatedly in peer reviewed published research studies to strengthen the prefrontal circuits (keeping our CEO online).
