'If I had been doing TM all along, I would have been more calm and grounded'
20 August 2017 - 'Success is a journey, not a destination. I wish I had realized that sooner,' writes Michelle Henghold. 'More success usually equals more responsibility and when you don't have the tools to hit the reset button, toxic stress can take over your life.' As CEO of her husband's rapidly expanding surgical reconstruction practice, she watched as it 'sucked the life out of us. . . . I knew I needed to go inward more.' From her very first time practising Transcendental Meditation, she says, 'I went to a place that I had not been in many years. And there it was, waiting for me: peace.' She added, 'It's as natural and necessary as breathing and eating, and I will never not do it. . . . I believe that if I had been doing TM all along, I would have been more calm and grounded. I would have been able to fit in my family life and accomplish everything I wanted to do in a much more balanced way.' (more)

Invincible Defense Technology: Preventive defence to eliminate the ground for war and terrorism - Eurasia Review
18 August 2017 - To maintain its leadership in the world, the U.S. needs a new kind of 'disruptive technology' that not only challenges enemies, but completely disables them. By applying 'Invincible Defense Technology' - a human resource-based, non-lethal, non-destructive technology - militaries can prevent enemies from arising. IDT is inexpensive, scalable, and has proven effectiveness, as described in 18 peer-reviewed studies. The authors, led by Lt. Gen. Clarence E. McKnight Jr. (U.S. Army, Ret.), suggest organizing Prevention wings - large groups of military personnel practising the Transcendental Meditation technique and its advanced programmes. IDT groups have been shown to reduce social stress and promote positive changes indicated by reduced terrorism, crime rate, infant mortality, accidents, hospital admissions, etc. After such profound societal changes occur, the ground for war and terrorism is eliminated.

Uganda: African girls find school can bring happiness - not just passing grades
10 August 2017 - The Ideal Girls High School in eastern Uganda provides girls from poor, rural families with a quality secondary education that includes Transcendental Meditation, an effective programme to improve their learning ability and reduce stress. The school embraces the ideal that the foremost and ultimate goal of education should be to develop the student's full potential: to learn, to create, to think, to analyze, and to live a full and happy, healthy life. One girl says: 'When I meditate I feel my body having enough energy, my mind settles. I can do, I can achieve the desire to do important things.' Ninety-two per cent of the students pass the important O-level national exams in tenth grade - a remarkable accomplishment for an open-admissions school. The UN reports, 'Educating a girl changes her destiny, as well as those of her future children, and ensures that she can contribute to the economic life of her community.' (more)
