The article features Earl Sheperd, a retired fire captain in San Diego, California, USA, who was an honour student in college. Yet it might have been difficult to predict the successful, fulfilling path of his adult life, from his early school career—he was a high school dropout who 'barely made it out of high school'.
What happened between high school and college? In his first semester of junior college, he learnt the Transcendental Meditation (TM) Technique. Within the first couple of months, he says, 'Everything changed.' He became a math major who was so good he tutored others.
He continued to practise the technique all through his adult life. 'In every aspect of my life, TM has strengthened me as a human being. Not just as a black man—it strengthened me as a black man, it strengthened me as an American . . . . all my values, all my faith in everything.'
