Central Saanich Police Service and Area Police Officers Benefit from TranscendentalMeditation

The Canadian Women’s Wellness Initiative—the women’s wing of the Transcendental Meditation organization in Canada—has partnered with the Central Saanich Police Service [CSPS] near Victoria, British Columbia to offer Transcendental Meditation to their officers and staff.

Hollywood Filmmaker Believes Meditation Could Help Curb Crime In Philly

…  “Philadelphia was very very very good to me,” says Lynch.

Now he wants to return the favor to Philadelphia by giving the gift of “Transcendental Meditation.”

“Transcendental Meditation is not a religion. It’s not a cult. It’s a mental technique,” said Lynch, who runs a foundation in his name to teach TM.

A part of the solution may lie in Transcendental Meditation. This was the theme of a national summit held in New York last Friday, where medical experts and recovering addicts, including comedian Russell Brand and 20/20 anchor Elizabeth Vargas, gathered to discuss the role of TM in addressing America’s opioid crisis. …
