The Tower Companies is an award-winning real estate development company in Washington, DC, USA where more than 50 per cent of the executives and employees practice the Transcendental Meditation Technique as part of Tower's company-sponsored wellness programme.
The following are some of their comments:
'These people may work for me, but what they have found is something that works for them—in the office and out of the office, in their professional life and in their personal life. With Transcendental Meditation, it's hard to draw the line between personal and professional benefits. We offer TM because health insurance is not sufficient—it offers medical care only after the inevitable strain of life has become too much. We feel businesses should offer Transcendental Meditation out of compassion and as a way of offering genuine insurance—to ensure their employees' success and well-being year after year.'
— Jeffrey Abramson, Partner, Tower Companies
'I am a highly energetic person with a lot of stress in my life. Transcendental Meditation has allowed me to take time out for myself, which has helped to reduce my high blood pressure and to improve my communication skills with others.'
—Marvin Atwell, Regional Facilities Manager, Tower Companies
'Practicing TM for the last 12 years has given me the ability to be patient, think more clearly, and provide better solutions on the job. But TM has also increased my awareness and appreciation of the world around me-most importantly the love I have for my family and true friends.'
—Chuck Wallach, Director of Leasing & Tenant Construction, Tower Companies
'As a working parent, I have found that TM has allowed me to be calmer and less irritable with my children. I have the ability to think before I overreact. As a result, we are able to spend more time enjoying each other's company. It's really a pleasure.'—Linda Schoengold, Legal Assistant,Tower Companies
