The most prestigious and widely read newspaper in Peru recently featured a page-long article on the Transcendental Meditation Programme and its benefits for education. This article was then syndicated by several other Latin American newspapers and online news outlets.
The article, which appeared in the Peruvian newspaper 16 January 2011, recommends Transcendental Meditation for creating a more peaceful and coherent atmosphere within schools. It also cites the benefit of improved performance among students, due to reduction of stress and development of full brain potential.
The newspaper article also mentioned plans for 150,000 additional students in Peru to learn Transcendental Meditation within 2011, and said that this would be made possible through the David Lynch Foundation.
Within several days, the original article was syndicated by a widely read news website in Peru, as well as a newspaper in Bolivia. 'We expect that the wave of influence created by the Peruvian article will expand in the coming weeks and months, since that newspaper attracts many influential readers,' said Dr Javier Ortiz, National Director of the Transcendental Meditation Programme in Peru.
Dr Ortiz went on to report a significant development that has already taken place in the wake of the article: a Peruvian education authority expressed interest in setting up lectures on Transcendental Meditation at 1,000 of the nation's schools within the next month.
