To help cope with holiday stress, the Maharishi Peace Palace will offer two lectures on the effectiveness of Transcendental Meditation. 'We want to give people an understanding of something extremely simple, very natural, that you can learn in less than a week' and that gives immediate results 'to make your Christmas happy and peaceful', said Jeff Murphy, director of the Peace Palace in Kentucky, USA.
It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring
fulfilment to the field of health.
The article begins by pointing out that the joy and peace of the Christmas season can be eclipsed by feelings of anxiety and depression as well as the abuse of various substances. Transcendental Meditation was offered as a solution that can help individuals cope with a stressful time.
According to Jeff Murphy, Transcendental Meditation enables the mind to turn inward and experience more refined levels of thought. This natural process brings about calmness.
Transcendental Meditation is non-religious and has many scientific studies that prove its effectiveness. Murphy's wife, Mary, explained that the several hundred research studies in areas of physical and mental health 'show something really significant happens when people do the practice'.
One of the significant benefits was published last May in the American Journal of Cardiology. The 18-year study found that individuals who practised Transcendental Meditation displayed a 30 per cent reduction of heart disease.
Mary Murphy also commented that Transcendental Meditation can be practised anywhere that one can sit quietly with eyes closed.
Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total
Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
