… “Transcendental Meditation is an effortless form of meditation that is practiced while sitting comfortably, with the eyes closed, for 20 minutes twice a day.  It is easy to learn and practice.  Trust me, if I, a Jewish girl from the East coast, can meditate, then anyone can.  It is also not a religion or a lifestyle. TM has extensive research behind it, and has been recommended by the American Heart Association to reduce blood pressure.   Eight first-year ND students learned TM, and below you can find some of their testimonials.” …

For example: MIke Smith: “I have done several guided visualization techniques and different meditations in the past, but none have taken me deeper than TM. My mind becomes so quiet and I lose all sense of a body and become a consciousness. I feel a happiness and inner peace after practicing TM. Besides the obvious benefit of quieting the mind and body, I’ve noticed myself being more engaged and present in my daily activities, especially in class and with studying. I don’t know how, but deeply quieting the mind for 20 minutes, twice a day, has led to an enhanced functioning throughout my day. Moreover, this feeling is magnified within a group meditation setting, leading to feelings of ecstasy and pure bliss.”
