Uganda: An Iowa woman's Transcendental Meditation road leads to Africa
19 June 2018 - 'I've always gravitated toward projects that had to do with women,' says Leslee Goldstein. For her Ph.D. in Vedic Science at Maharishi University of Management, 'I decided to do a research study on Transcendental Meditation with women, and then I narrowed it to mothers.' Goldstein put the word out that she wanted to do her research in Africa, and within 48 hours had a project with 81 single, illiterate mothers living in poverty in Uganda. 'A mother is the first teacher. . . . a mother's job is a challenging job: You have to be a doctor, counselor, cook - you have to be everything, her job is 24/7. I started to see how important it is for mothers to have a way to stay balanced and to help them do their jobs, because it's critical for the world.' (more)

In New York, Boston, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, Roth joined a panel of experts, moderated by Ms. Shriver, 'to discuss evidence-based strategies to prevent the risk factors associated with Alzheimer's disease, particularly among women, who are disproportionately more likely to be afflicted by this devastating epidemic,' Roth said. He spoke about benefits of regular meditation practice, and TM's effects in reducing high blood pressure, heart disease, and cortisol - while improving brain and cognitive functioning. (more)

Canada: Premeditated move - Rabbi relocating to Iowa to deepen knowledge of Transcendental Meditation

Transcendental Meditation shown to reduce alcohol addiction
14 June 2018 - An important study on Transcendental Meditation and alcohol prevention was published this spring in the Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment. Dr Jan Gryczynski, lead author of the study, stated: 'The overarching purpose of this pilot study was really to determine the feasibility of integrating TM into alcohol use disorder treatment. . . . I see meditation in general, and TM specifically, as having great promise in relapse prevention.' One of the subjects has been sober for six months - she learned Transcendental Meditation five months ago. She said, 'Now when I wake up in the morning, I feel happy; I feel blessed. The one regret I have is that I wish I had started [TM] earlier, just so I could have had that much more of my life back.' (more)

Attn: President Putin - No Enemies = No Nuclear War
12 June 2018 - In an open letter to Russian President Vladimir Putin, Dr David Leffler, executive director at the Center for Advanced Military Science, presents Invincible Defense Technology (IDT) as a solution for any head of state 'to achieve unquestioned invincibility for their nation'. Dr Leffler explains that extensive peer-reviewed research and military field-tests worldwide show that IDT brings about measurable decreases in war, terrorism, and crime, and improved quality of life - tangible signs of reduced societal stress. Studies show that large groups practising the non-religious Transcendental Meditation technique and its advanced programmes twice a day generate a proven field effect that profoundly influences all within its vicinity. The approach has been used during wartime, resulting in reduced fighting, war deaths, and casualties - and improved progress toward resolving conflict through peaceful means. 'Recent events worldwide show that IDT is desperately needed. It works quickly, and there is no better solution,' Dr Leffler concludes. 'President Putin would be wise to immediately implement the programme, thereby turning his enemies into allies, and creating lasting peace.' (more)
