On April 29, 2016 The The Daily Californian reported: Univeristy of California, Berkeley alumna Sharyn Loshakoff described how she learned Transcendental Meditation in 1968 along with many of her friends. When asked what students can expect from beginning TM she said, ''TM is not a stress-management technique, but rather a stress-elimination technique. It works on surface fatigue—the type of tiredness that students have. It refreshes you, and you come out of meditation feeling relaxed and energized.''
On increased mental clarity given by TM in the area of time-management, she says, ''as we're meditating, we have a tendency to become more creative—that part of the brain is more enlivened . . . we see things and instead of being stressed out, we see them as challenges and naturally become healthier.''

Sharyn touches on her work teaching TM to various at-risk individuals: ''We teach military vets who have post-traumatic stress disorder and even during the first instruction of TM, we can see it starting to go. I have taught people who are bipolar and people with ADHD, and again, it's like the brain begins to revert to more comfortable type of expressing yourself and taking in information.''
She concludes: ''I just am so grateful that I walked into TM without any intention—it took care of my physiological problems. When I started TM, I didn't think I would see a physical difference in how I really felt—it is just a very easy, natural experience to have. We are not meant to be stressed out and upset—that's not how to live our life.''
