An article recently appeared in the Huffington Post describing the negative impacts of collective stress within society, and how group practice of the Transcendental Meditation Programme might alleviate and prevent such large-scale negative occurrences through its coherence-creating effect.
The article explains the term collective consciousness as referring to 'the overall social atmosphere that arises from the thought and behavior of all the individual members of a community or society,' and that when stress mounts within such a community, consequences might occur such as violence and social disorder.
It then poses the question: 'If we're all interconnected through the fabric of collective consciousness, could society be transformed through a sufficient number of people creating a positive influence?' A prime example of such a positive influence, the article goes on to say, is Transcendental Meditation. Group practice of the technique has been proven to reduce crime, such as in a 1993 Washington, DC based study, the article explains.
The Huffington Post cites the research of renowned quantum physicist Dr John Hagelin as illuminating the positive effect of TM practice on collective consciousness, and how this phenomenon is grounded in the existence of the Unified Field—the fundamental field of consciousness underlying all matter. The article links to a Youtube video in which Dr Hagelin explains these scientific principles in more detail.
