The Transcendental Meditation technique is a simple, easy-to-implement, integrated approach to developing soldier well-being. Along with its extensive research, the procedural and teaching aspects of the TM technique are also a great fit for military life:

1. Standardized instruction:
Systematic instruction ensures consistent results regardless of instructor or location

2. Simple to learn:
Easily learned by anyone—making it accessible to both military practitioners and civilians

3. Reduces stress:
As shown by decreased heart and respiration rate and faster recovery from stress

4. Portable:
Can be practiced anywhere at any time, without specialized equipment or the need for personnel

5. Cost-effective:
Low instruction fee and shown to reduce medical expenditures by 14 percent annually

''If we think back through history to the great examples of a finely tuned warrior, it would have to include the Japanese samurai. The training of a samurai warrior was centered on 'union.' An expert samurai represented the total integration, the total union, of mind and body: quick, clear, thinking combined with precision and strength of the body, working as one.''

Jerry Yellin, Co-Chair of Operation Warrior Wellness
