Secrets to a longer, healthier life: How modern scientific discoveries and ancient holistic traditions can reverse ageing
18 May 2017 - Robert Schneider, MD, FACC, presents 'a new science of ageing that integrates the discoveries of modern science with those of an ancient health science - Maharishi AyurVeda, a holistic approach to ageing that enhances the mind and body from deep within, using the wisdom of the body's inner intelligence'. Dr Schneider is Dean of the College of Integrative Medicine and Director of the Institute for Natural Medicine and Prevention at Maharishi University of Management. His research has been supported by US$25 million in grants from the National Institutes of Health and other agencies. He cites many studies, including those demonstrating that 'older individuals who practise Transcendental Meditation show lower rates of mortality - they live significantly longer with better physical and mental health than control subjects who do not meditate. . . . Simply put, stress speeds ageing. And effective stress reduction slows it down.' (more)

Don Arney inducted into National Inventors Hall of Fame: TM allows me to mine the 'kernels of innovation'
13 May 2017 - One of 15 extraordinary innovators inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame (US) last week is Don Arney, inventor of the aerial fire-fighting 'Bambi Bucket', now used in over 110 countries. Suspended from a helicopter, the lightweight, collapsible bucket delivers huge quantities of water in a concentrated column. It was used to cool Japan's Fukushima nuclear site after the 2011 tsunami. Describing the creative process of this invention, Arney credited his long Transcendental Meditation practice, twice a day since 1970, which allows him to mine the 'nuggets of information' and 'kernels of innovation' that bubble up from deeper levels of the mind. In his NIHF acceptance speech in Washington, DC, he also paid tribute to his long-time business partner Mark McCooey, who transformed Arney's invention into an iconic product used around the world, saving forests, homes and lives.

Brain imaging parses Transcendental Meditation practice - Psych Central reports
8 November 2016 - New research, published in the journal Brain and Cognition, explains differences and dispels misconceptions regarding Transcendental Meditation and other meditation practices, Psych Central recently reported. The study found that during practice of Transcendental Meditation, activity in the 'default mode network' (a large-scale brain network involving areas in the front and back of the brain) was high, showing that the process did not involve effort or control of the mind. These findings underscoring the effortlessness of TM practice are in contrast with those on other meditation practices, which all show decreased activity in the default mode network - indicating that the mind is being focused, and not allowed to effortlessly transcend. 'It's a critical point,' said lead author Fred Travis, PhD, director of the Center for Brain, Consciousness, and Cognition at Maharishi University of Management. 'Researchers, commentators, and popular media often lump meditation practices together.' (more)

Research validates the defining hallmark of Transcendental Meditation -- effortlessness
4 November 2016 - As the value of meditation becomes widely recognized, researchers are increasingly trying to understand the differences among approaches. A study published 4 November in the journal Brain and Cognition reports subjective experiences and cortical activation patterns that distinguish the Transcendental Meditation technique from other meditation practices. 'Transcendental Meditation uses a mantra, and for this reason some researchers maintain that it involves focused attention and controlling the mind,' said lead author Fred Travis, Director of the Center for Brain, Consciousness and Cognition at Maharishi University of Management. 'Those who practice TM know this is not the case. This study supports their experience that Transcendental Meditation is easy to learn and effortless to practice.' (more)

Global Good News features science news indicative of a growing understanding Natural Law

Global Good News features science news indicative of a growing understanding Natural Law, and the application of that knowledge for life-enhancing benefits.

Modern sciences examine the branches of Natural Law, expressed as the disciplines of physics, chemistry, mathematics, biology, and physiology. The fulfilment of modern science is the discovery of the Unified Field of All the Laws of Nature, the unified basis of all streams of knowledge, and the unification of the fundamental force fields of Nature known to science - the electromagnetic, weak, strong, and gravitational fields.

The Unified Field of Natural Law is enlivened in individual awareness through the Transcendental Meditation Technique and the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, including Yogic Flying. These are the technologies of Maharishi Vedic Science that make available to us the total potential of Natural Law and the total potential of human life.
