A two-page article about how the Transcendental Meditation Programme can help students with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)* was recently featured by news media in Great Britain.

Raja Peter Warburton, Raja of Invincible Great Britain for the Global Country of World Peace, presented highlights of the article, entitled 'How meditation can transcend medication'.

The article reports that while the number of children in the nation taking medication to suppress the symptoms of ADHD is skyrocketing, a new scientifically researched alternative may offer a solution free of negative side-effects.

A published study indicates 'that children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder could be helped by the simple act of daily meditation' the article states.

The article describes the value of the Transcendental Meditation Programme in education, scientific research, and a summary of facts about Transcendental Meditation, Raja Peter said. It also highlights results gained by schools that have implemented the programme, including an interview with an educator experienced in working with children with learning difficulties.

The educator successfully utilized the programme while working with children with myriad learning and behavioural difficulties including ADHD. He found that with the practice of Transcendental Meditation, the children showed significant improvement, the article reported.

This very detailed, thorough, positive, and straightforward article was inspired by a Teacher of Transcendental Meditation who called the newspaper asking if they would like to report on the topic, Raja Peter said.
