There is growing consensus among a broad range of stakeholders that combating the widespread problem of Post-Traumatic Stress with Transcendental Meditation is an idea whose time has come. 'A tremendous receptivity is growing,' said Adam Pressman.
Mr Pressman has a uniquely wide-angle perspective on this phenomenon as director of video production for the David Lynch Foundation, parent organization of Operation Warrior Wellness.
He has produced many videos documenting the often dramatic relief experienced by those suffering from PTS through practising Transcendental Meditation—interviewing researchers, combat veterans, first responders (police and firefighters), their families, and government officials. Having most recently overseen filming of an Operation Warrior Wellness benefit event in New York, Mr Pressman commented on the outreach and support generated for this initiative and the building momentum of promoting Transcendental Meditation as an effective, and cost-effective, treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress.
'Sometimes people can be so sunk in problems that they can't even recognize a solution,' he said, referring to a principle noted by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of the Transcendental Meditation programme.
But recently, Mr Pressman added, people in stressful situations, such as military personnel, police officers, and firefighters, are increasingly hearing the message and responding to it.
'It's remarkable that this event was so mainstream,' he said, speaking of the benefit in Brooklyn, New York. It attracted people from every stratum of society, 'all working together to raise support to provide Transcendental Meditation for these critical members of society.'
Many people are battling Post-Traumatic Stress and finding it difficult to make any headway, he pointed out. 'There are so many things that people are trying that are not working to deal with this problem; and yet after just a few days practising Transcendental Meditation,' many experience great relief.
It seems to be a treatment unlike any other, Mr Pressman added. 'It's just not possible to deal with these difficult situations without the benefit of a tool like Transcendental Meditation. In reality, there actually isn't any other tool like Transcendental Meditation . . . .'
