A United States veteran who served in Vietnam describes how the Transcendental Meditation Programme transformed his life.
The experiences that he endured in Vietnam created 'huge amounts of distress', he said speaking at the David Lynch Foundation's Second Annual 'Change Begins Within' Benefit Gala in New York City on 13 December.
When he returned home, he said, 'I did not feel happiness, I did not feel sorrow, I did not feel surprise. My feelings were gone.'
He first heard about the Transcendental Meditation Programme from a fellow veteran in his platoon who had found an article about the technique in Newsweek magazine. The article 'talks about stress release, about becoming a whole person', he said.
'I could not believe what happened,' he said, describing how he felt after learning the technique. 'It was absolutely transformational.
'All that feeling of stress and all that feeling of heaviness—I could feel it melt away from my head to my feet. And from that moment on things changed—no more drugs, no more alcohol, life changed. My emotions came back. Life came back.'
