A high-ranking police officer in the New England region of the United States, who had been suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress, recently learned Transcendental Meditation and within ten days was experiencing dramatic positive results.
In that short time he had also become so enthusiastic about the prospect of implementing the Transcendental Meditation programme for the police that he wanted to become a teacher of the technique himself 'and teach the police and all these first responders something that will save lives,' said Adam Pressman, director of video productions for the David Lynch Foundation.
Mr Pressman conducted an in-depth interview with the officer, one of several that will be included in a new video highlighting the profound effect Transcendental Meditation is having on active duty military, veterans, and first responders suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress.
The interviews were conducted after a successful benefit event for Operation Warrior Wellness in Brooklyn, New York, last month. Operation Warrior Wellness, a national initiative of the David Lynch Foundation, strives to raise awareness and funds for those suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress and to provide them with scholarships to learn Transcendental Meditation, a unique tool that has been shown to quickly and effectively treat the disorder.
In his interview, the police officer said that he sees first responders every day who are afflicted with Post-Traumatic Stress, but he has become convinced that Transcendental Meditation is a simple tool that produces results.
Mr Pressman also interviewed a woman and her husband, a retired New York state police officer, about their experience of rapid healing from the nightmare of Post-Traumatic Stress. The wife, Deborah Ortiz, had given a moving presentation at the Brooklyn event.
Describing these and other interviews recently, Mr Pressman added that Post-Traumatic Stress is an unfortunate casualty of the stress that a first responder faces every day, and that people live with and just accept that 'this is the way it has to be'. But Post-Traumatic Stress diminishes people's lives, reduces their health, and ultimately, can cause suicide.
He concluded that, as many police officers, veterans, and military personnel are now discovering through the outreach efforts of Operation Warrior Wellness, using a tool such as Transcendental Meditation can provide much-needed relief.
