The Los Angeles Committee for Stress-Free Schools will hold a national news conference on Friday, April 2 at 11:00 a.m. at the Renaissance Hotel in Hollywood, where researcher Dr. Vernon Barnes will announce results of a major new study showing that the Transcendental Meditation program reduces blood pressure in high-risk teens. The study will be published in the American Journal of Hypertension on April 2.
'Reducing high blood pressure in teens through a stress-reducing program like TM could save billions in future health costs' says Phil Jones, Medical College of Georgia.
His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the founder of the Transcendental Meditation program will address the news conference via satellite.
The following will be attending the conference: John Hagelin, Ph.D., of Maharishi University of Management; David Lynch, Oscar-nominated film director; Bill Duke, Emmy-winning director and actor; and Laura Dern, Award-winning actress.
Maharishi first introduced the Transcendental Meditation program in Los Angeles 45 years ago in April 1959. Now, the technique is practiced by 6 million people of all ages and religions worldwide, and used in thousands of schools, colleges, and universities to improved academic achievement and prevent and treat stress, anxiety and depression, and learning disabilities.
Members of the Los Angeles Youth Meditation Group will demonstrate the Transcendental Meditation technique during the news conference. A group of celebrities and parents plan to launch a campaign to bring TM to the classroom.
