Fundacion Hogares Claret, an organization dedicated to providing treatment for youth and families affected by drug addiction and other social problems, has found success using Transcendental Meditation.
The foundation, started by Father Gabriel Mejia, cares for thousands of underprivileged children all over Colombia and in many other countries in Latin America, including the Caribbean.
Initially, Father Mejia implemented Transcendental Meditation (TM) and the advanced Transcendental Meditation Sidhi programme simply as an alternative therapeutic method—but seeing the great success of these programmes, he began to utilize them on a wide scale. With this wide-scale implementation, large groups practising these techniques began to form across the continent.
This development, in addition to providing effective therapy for participants, began to produce an even more profound effect, one that is felt nation- and continent-wide.
Large groups practising these coherence-creating technologies of consciousness are able to neutralize acute ethnic, political, and religious tensions that fuel violence, terrorism, and social conflict. This approach is known as Invincible Defense Technology.
Thus, though Father Mejia considered these alternative therapies a way to provide rehabilitation to people struggling with drug addiction and other problems, it is also a direct way to create invincible, permanent peace and progress in Colombia and all Latin American countries.
Especially now that long-term Hogares Claret centres, where people come for three- to six-year rehabilitation programmes, are focusing on applying the more advanced meditation approaches, there will be long-term, stable groups of people practising coherence-creating technologies.
'Through this, they will create a permanent effect of coherence in the national consciousness,' said a Transcendental Meditation teacher involved in the project.
He concluded that in addition to providing effective treatment and hope to thousands of underprivileged children throughout Latin America and the Caribbean, Hogares Claret is helping to protect and uplift the entire region.
