Consciousness-Based Education programmes in the United States are showing very positive outcomes in schools, as well as increasing awareness of the benefits of the Transcendental Meditation Programme for many kinds of psychological disorders.
Dr Adam Pressman, National Director of Video Production for the Global Country of World Peace in the United States, reported* on a Consciousness-Based Education project supported by the David Lynch Foundation in a high school in the southwestern US.
A video clip illlustrated many positive changes found by teachers, students, and administrators at the school, who have also noticed these effects in others participating in the programme.
Disciplinary violations of all kinds have reduced by almost 50 per cent at the school, and everyone is feeling happier and less stressed, according to reports featured in the video.
In the coming days, Global Good News will feature recent research of Dr Sarina Grosswald,** who has offered special training programmes for Teachers of Transcendental Meditation to bring the technique to people with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), which affects about 4.5 million students in the US, as well as other disorders.
* This report was featured on the 26 January 2010 Maharishi Global Family Chat, 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.
** Sarina Grosswald, EdD, is an expert in cognitive learning who recently directed the first-of-its-kind research study on the effects of the Transcendental Meditation Programme on children with language-based learning disabilities. Dr Grosswald's work has been extensively featured in the national media in the US, including PBS and ABC News.
