Transcendental Meditation, exercise, and therapy hold major depression at bay
26 July 2017 - Gayathri Ramprasad, founder and president of the nonprofit foundation ASHA International, is a dynamic mental health activist who owes her own recovery from depression to Transcendental Meditation, regular exercise, and therapy. She works tirelessly to help others on their journey out of depression. 'I started struggling with depression when I was 18,' says Ms Ramprasad, who was born in India and settled in Oregon. Originally unfamiliar with the term depression, she began learning as much as she could about her possible recovery. 'I have practised Transcendental Meditation for 25 years now, every morning of my life,' she says. 'It has completely transformed me. Slowly, I discovered that combining meditation with cognitive behavioral therapy and exercise, especially yoga, is effective in fighting my depression.' (more)

Maharishi University of Management pioneers first complete farm-to-fork program in Regenerative Organic Agriculture
25 July 2017 - Maharishi University of Management in Iowa has launched the world's first complete programme to train the next generation of farmers in an agricultural paradigm that can fully reverse climate change and provide abundant and healthy food for our planet's growing population. Termed 'regenerative organic agriculture', this 10-month certificate work-study programme is a collaborative effort among five internationally renowned organizations in the field of organic and biodynamic agriculture - directed by Dr. A. Thimmaiah, an expert in climate-smart agriculture who has developed many low-cost farming solutions using natural resources that are benefiting thousands of farmers in different countries. He says few schools or organizations offer even one course in regenerative organic farming systems, which he distinguishes from common organic farming. Regenerative agriculture is a self-sufficient, closed-loop system in which farmers, on their own farms, produce all the inputs required, using only naturally available resources there. (more)

Canada: Find a deeper state of happiness through meditation, not medication - TM and recovery from addiction
24 July 2017 - These days comedian Russell Brand is one of many celebrities finding a natural high without drugs and alcohol. 'I'm quite a neurotic thinker, quite an adrenalized person. But after meditation, I feel this beautiful serenity and selfless connection,' he says. A recent article explains that TM provides the 'basic human need to experience one's true nature - a transcendent, non-changing, absolute state of one's own awareness. When we have that connection, we are no longer dependent on outside stimuli, like drugs and alcohol, to effect a euphoria of well-being. We become naturally content - self-satisfied, self-sufficient, and self-motivated from within ourselves.' has partnered with the Victoria, British Columbia, Transcendental Meditation Centre to offer TM to people in recovery.

Research has found TM to be effective in reducing PTSD. One veteran, a former Army nurse in Iraq who has been practising TM for four years, says painful memories are still there, but increasingly they seem like a thing of the past.

How to neutralize stress in the workplace
20 July 2017 - Each workplace environment is unique, but in this era they have a common thread - stress. Pavel Khokhlachev, a Russian-English conference interpreter based in London, offers insight into how the Transcendental Meditation technique (TM) not only benefits interpreters - but can positively impact professionals who work in high-stakes scenarios, travel for work, or regularly deal with a stressful environment. Khokhlachev reviews TM research findings of deep rest and relaxation during the practice, as well as reduced stress, anxiety, and PTSD, lower blood pressure, improved brain function, and enhanced work performance - all of which he has found helpful in the 'extremely demanding' work of consecutive and simultaneous interpreting. 'It's a great feeling to know that no matter how stressful and hectic my day is, I can always sit down, close my eyes and 20 minutes later feel rested, composed and alert,' he says. (more)

Ten studies published in professional journals have shown that Transcendental Meditation (TM) rapidly heals PTSD, both in military veterans and civilians. Research also indicates that TM can increase resilience, and 'build up an inner immune system that keeps the stress from devastating us'. (more)
