A recent interview with Dr Guy-Paul Gagné about improved brain performance through Transcendental Meditation, published in a Montreal newspaper, inspired many people to attend public introductory lectures on Transcendental Meditation and express their interest in learning the technique.

Speaking on the Maharishi Channel* Dr Gagné commented that the brain integration research conducted by Dr Fred Travis would be considered historic in the future, because now 'we have an objective, scientific measurement of brain performance. Transcendental Meditation now [emerges] as a technique to improve brain performance.'

Dr Travis's recent research paper states that methods of enhancing brain integration may therefore be critical for becoming a champion. The brain integration scale developed by Dr Travis and colleagues may provide an objective approach to allow athletes and coaches to monitor growth of inner development and by inference, performance potential.

Dr Travis found the same result when he looked further at leaders, for example presidents of companies. The research paper concludes that brain integration may be the next frontier in training for excellence in sports, as well as any other field of leadership and achievement.

* Dr Gagné spoke on the 2 September Maharishi Global Family Chat, which is broadcast daily via Internet webcast on the Maharishi Channel, Channel 3. Podcasts of the daily Global Family Chat (audio track) are also now available for automatic download, via an RSS feed.
