Attend the webinar and find out how

A breakthrough pilot study published in the June issue of Military Medicine suggests the evidence-based Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique can reduce by 50 percent veterans' symptoms of PTSD within two months. The TM technique is a simple, non-religious procedure that is easy to learn and practice. Vets from around the country are partnering with the David Lynch Foundation's Operation Warrior Wellness to make the technique easily accessible to their peers in need, including veterans, military personnel, and their families.

To educate the community on this promising new alternative therapy, Military Pathways® and Operation Warrior Wellness have teamed up to offer a FREE one hour web-based presentation on Thursday, September 1st from 2:30 – 3:30 (US) EST.


Stories of Triumph: Vietnam veteran Dan Burks and OIF veteran David George struggled with PTSD as they transitioned to civilian life. Both men will share their stories of how the TM technique enabled them to overcome the disorder's devastating symptoms.

Research Findings: PTSD researcher and meditation expert Dr. Sarina Grosswald will present results from several trial studies concerning the technique's effectiveness for treating PTSD.

Q&A: The presentation will be followed by a question and answer session with the speakers, in which webcast listeners will have the opportunity to voice their questions.


This presentation is open to everyone in the military community as well as the general public. Learn more about the TM pilot study.
