Two events in the USA—one this Saturday, 17 August in Washington, DC, and one in October in New York City—will showcase the unique value of the Transcendental Meditation program in helping veterans and first responders overcome the devastating effects of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
On August 17, the [Washington] DC Veterans Association Practicing the TM Program will host their first conference with medical researchers, psychologists, cognitive therapy specialists, and local meditating vets to explore the impact of Transcendental Meditation on PTSD and quality of life.
On October 17, in New York City, the NYC TM vets organization will co-host a benefit gala honoring FDNY Commissioner and Vietnam veteran Salvatore Cassano along with Hugh Jackman and Jerry Seinfeld, to raise funds to teach 1,000 NY Tri-State* veterans and first responders to meditate.
Veterans who attend the DC and NYC events will be eligible to learn the TM technique without cost through a generous grant from the David Lynch Foundation's Operation Warrior Wellness.
