The article highlights the Museum of Art School in Tucson, Arizona, one of the first schools to adopt the Quiet Time/Transcendental Meditation program. More than 350 schools all over the world have begun to incorporate the program as part of their curriculum during the past five years—thanks to the work of the David Lynch Foundation.
Mr Lynch started his Foundation to make the Transcendental Meditation Technique available to help students reduce stress, improve academic performance and, most of all, to enliven their full creativity and intelligence.
A video features students, teachers, and administrators at the Museum School talking about their experiences with the program. Program manager Katie Samson thought it would be especially useful to help calm keyed-up students. ''Our kids are right brain thinkers, they're visual artists and they sometimes need to settle down a little bit,'' she said. ''I thought this would be a great opportunity for our students to not only learn intellectually about meditation, but I thought it could really help their artwork and their creativity as well.''
School administrators were pleased with the effects of TM practice on reducing negative student behavior. These experiences were confirmed by a recent study published in Health and Quality of Life Outcomes which found that meditating students showed decreased absenteeism, suspensions, and rule infractions.
