Group practice of Transcendental Meditation reduces drug-related deaths in general population
26 March 2017 - The rate of US drug-related fatalities fell 30.4 per cent nationwide from 2007 to 2010 due to the reductions in societal stress and increased alertness in the individuals in society created by a large group practising the Transcendental Meditation technique and its advanced programme, the TM-Sidhi programme, a new study shows.

'It's a bold claim,' said lead author Dr Michael Dillbeck, 'but there are now 14 peer-reviewed published studies that suggest that one's individual consciousness is directly connected to an underlying, universal field of consciousness, and that by collectively tapping into that universal field through Transcendental Meditation, we can have a positive effect on the environment.' This analysis of stress-related public health indicators also found that during the same period the rate of infant mortality was reduced by 12.5 per cent. (more)

19 March 2017 - When award-winning ABC News anchor Elizabeth Vargas courageously went public in 2013 about her struggles with anxiety induced alcohol addiction, it was a step towards removing the stigma from the issue of women's alcohol addiction and bringing the topic into the spotlight.
