Transcendental Meditation (TM) is a simple, easily-learned technique that has been studied and found effective by numerous prestigious institutions, including the Harvard School of Medicine, the National Institutes of Health, the U.S. Department of Defense, the American Heart Association and the American Medical Association. Published research shows the technique reduces symptoms of post-traumatic stress among veterans by 50 percent; decreases hypertension, anxiety and depression; helps individuals overcome drug and alcohol addictions; and improves brain functioning, creativity and memory.
