The Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique, as introduced over 50 years ago by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, is a simple, nonreligious procedure that is easy to learn and practice. The technique is practiced for 20 minutes twice a day, sitting comfortably in a chair with the eyes closed.
Evidence-based stress relief
1. Hundreds of peer-reviewed studies show improvements in health and performance and reductions in stress, anxiety, and depression.
2. The National Institutes of Health have awarded $26 million to study the benefits of the Transcendental Meditation technique in preventing and treating cardiovascular disease, including hypertension, atherosclerosis, stroke, and heart failure.
3. The technique has been successfully implemented in a wide range of institutional settings, including Fortune 100 companies and small businesses, hospitals, inner-city schools, Native American reservations, and prisons.
For relieving traumatic stress and developing resiliency, the TM technique boasts an impressive track record of success and carries a significantly lower price tag.
''You can get away from the combat environment. And you can take drugs to forget. But that doesn't relieve the fact that you still carry around the trauma of war. From my experience, Transcendental Meditation allows a person to release the stress—and find their peace within.''
—Anonymous, OIF veteran and government contractor
''After meditating a few weeks, my whole day was stress free.''
—David George, OIF veteran
