Employees of Oprah Winfrey at Harpo Studios in Chicago recently had the opportunity to learn from Maharishi University of Management faculty neuroscientist Dr Fred Travis how stress affects the brain and how the Transcendental Meditation technique helps.

In Chicago to speak to students at Joliet Community College, Dr. Travis was invited to Harpo Studios, where approximately 250 employees have learned the Transcendental Meditation technique.

Dr. Travis gave two presentations, one to a team of about 20 meditating employees who are tasked with selecting what is aired on the Oprah Winfrey Network.

''It's a very demanding job, involving long hours,'' Dr. Travis said. ''They have a great appreciation for the Transcendental Meditation technique—and for the fact that Oprah has made the practice part of their schedule.''

He also spoke to a group of about 35 who hadn't yet learned the practice.
