“At birth I suffered a brain injury. An EEG test showed chaotic, abnormal brain waves, and in school I had Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). I couldn’t concentrate, and my thoughts were clouded.

Research validates the defining hallmark of Transcendental Meditation — effortlessness

126350_web

As the value of meditation becomes widely recognized, researchers are increasingly trying to understand the differences among approaches. A study published today in “Brain and Cognition” reports subjective experiences and cortical activation patterns that distinguish the Transcendental Meditation technique from other meditation practices.

“Transcendental Meditation uses a mantra, and for this reason some researchers maintain that it involves focused attention and controlling the mind,” said lead author Fred Travis. “Those who practice TM know this is not the case.
