A baseball player's guide to a meaningful life
17 October 2017 - Entering college after enjoying 'ordered and predictable' years defined by the routines of high school baseball, Steven Baxter felt directionless, with 'no sense of connection to the future or, worse, no connection to myself.' Then, in his sophomore year, 'I went to a presentation at my school about Transcendental Meditation. After learning the technique, it was suddenly as if I wore a new and better prescription in my eyeglasses. TM brought focus. It smoothed the waves that buffeted me daily. . . . TM helped me to understand and appreciate where I was at any given moment. Knowing that, I felt like I could quickly and confidently set out on life's journey when it was time to do so. I had recalibrated my internal compass to True North.' (more)

Successful self-reinvention: The award-winning Susan Daniels
13 October 2017 - At a time in life when many women are retiring, Susan Daniels is earning her PhD in creative writing. Mother, author, nurse, with previous degrees including BSN (nursing) and MFA in writing, she says, 'I can't think of an area of my life that hasn't been affected for the better by the Transcendental Meditation practice.' She learned TM in 1973, and later on as 'busy parents with a growing business . . . meditating twice a day was the one thing that made it work.' Susan describes the many rewards she found, following an illness, when she decided to train as a nurse. And while in nursing school she started writing. She recently won a book prize that includes a publishing contract with New Rivers Press, a highly regarded literary press at Minnesota State University. (more)

Building a business for peace: Maharishi University of Management alumnus

The discovery that EEG coherence increases during Transcendental Meditation
30 September 2017 - Dr David Orme-Johnson continues his review of groundbreaking research on brain activity during Transcendental Meditation in the EEG lab at Maharishi European Research University (MERU) in the early 1970s. This work 'laid the foundation for measuring brain orderliness during the experience of transcending, and greatly expanded our knowledge of Transcendental Consciousness,' Dr Orme-Johnson said. The pioneering application of computers to calculate a precise measure of brain wave synchrony called coherence showed that the alpha1 EEG brain waves, which research had found to increase during TM and to be synchronous, were highly coherent across the brain. This work 'allowed us, and scientific research in general, to remove subjective judgement, and to detect and explore more subtle changes in global brain dynamics'. (more)

'Dancing With the Stars' host Tom Bergeron says Transcendental Meditation helps him keep his cool during a live show - ABC News
27 September 2017 - In a live show, anything can happen. But Tom Bergeron trusts he can handle it because he has been practising meditation for decades. The host of ABC TV's hit dancing competition show 'Dancing With the Stars', which kicked off its 25th season last week, said he has been practising Transcendental Meditation (TM) for over 35 years. Being a longtime meditator, he said, has been key in keeping his cool and 'respond[ing] appropriately' during a live show in front of a panel of judges, contestants and a studio audience. 'I trust that because of the practice, because of the investment of time and mental energy into being present, that I'm going . . . to somehow know how to roll with whatever happens,' Bergeron, 62, told ABC's Dan Harris during an interview for his podcast, '10% Happier.'

Actor Hugh Jackman: 'Transcendental Meditation has helped me in every way, immeasurably.'
23 September 2017 - Eight months into practising Transcendental Meditation, actor Hugh Jackman had a very clear thought one day: 'Hang on! Meditation is the centre of it all, where all activities can spring from the deepest well possible. If I act or parent or be a husband or throw a baseball or wash up, if I do it after meditating, it's a whole different activity.' Since then Jackman has not made it a secret how much TM has impacted his life. 'I would say possibly equally to how marriage and kids did - I would put it right up there, in terms of things that have affected my life.' Describing how TM has helped him excel as an actor and deal with the high level of stress in his profession, he says: 'Your only tools you really have are being present, being clear, and listening. So, it helped me in every way, immeasurably.' (more)
