David George is one of thousands of veterans finding Transcendental Meditation, or TM, as the answer to relieving their PTSD symptoms without losing independence. Veterans spend a few hours learning how to meditate with certified TM instructors and can work on the skill independently after that. It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of defence.
''The first time that I did [TM], I just remember a weight was lifted off my chest. I didn't realize that the anxiety was crushing the life out of me,'' George says.
''When the mind and body are relaxed, the body begins to renew, rejuveniate and heal itself,'' says Sarina Grosswald, director of research for the David Lynch Foundation's Operation Warrior Wellness.
Washington, D.C. Veterans Association members practicing the Transcendental Meditation program are hosting a health conference in Bethesda, Md., on Saturday, Aug. 17.
Veterans who attend the event will be eligible to learn the TM technique for free through a grant from the David Lynch Foundation's Operation Warrior Wellness.
