In a candid and thoughtful essay, Anniversary, Susan Wilking Horan, attorney, author, wellness advocate, and 35-year practitioner of Transcendental Meditation, describes the important role TM has played in her victory over three different types of cancer in the past 20 years.
She uses the analogy of a wheel to represent all the various aspects of a person's life. ''The most important part of the wheel is the center—the hub—the anchor that holds all the other parts together. And, this is where the practice of Transcendental Meditation resides. In the center of all our physical, mental, spiritual and emotional aspects.''

''The answer really is within,'' Ms Horan concludes. ''It is within all of us. We simply need the tool to access it. A technique that allows us to dive into the essence of who and what we are—and to integrate that unbounded experience into all the other aspects of our life.
''And for me, that tool—that technique—is Transcendental Meditation. That easy, simple practice of sitting quietly for a few minutes twice a day. It is that to which I owe my milestone anniversaries this year. And, of course, armed with TM—my ever-ready always accessible ally—I reserve every hope and intention of celebrating many, many more.''
