On 21 May 2017 reported: Geri Hirsch found relief from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) through Transcendental Meditation (TM) when she could not seem to recover from ''the most stressful, traumatic, unstable state of my life'' following her young husband's heart attack while out for his regular morning run. ''The PTSD was real, and I was having a really hard time finding a way to stabilize my stress,'' she said. ''One of my husband's friends got him a Transcendental Meditation class as a get-well gift. . . . After the four-day class, he was meditating daily, and I could feel his calmness.'' 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 health.

Two months later she learned TM at the David Lynch Foundation in L.A.

Geri says, ''When people ask me why I like [TM], there's only one way I can explain it: We spend our entire lives in our bodies, but we don't actually spend much time with ourselves. We're constantly going, going, going, and doing, doing, doing, and rarely stop—I mean TRULY stop—to focus and get in touch with our thoughts. TM is that time; it's the chance to check in with your mind. It's 20 minutes to be one with myself and my thoughts, which helps bring great clarity and peace.''
