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. Given how stressful law enforcement can be, this comes as welcome news, for police officers and the general public.

Helen Foster-Grimmett (see photo), a longtime certified TM Teacher and Director for Women at the Victoria, British Columbia TM Center, read a CBC News report on a 2015 study that found more than 30 per cent of Vancouver police officers have PTSD.

The study, conducted by Kwantlen Polytechnic University psychologist Lisa Kitt for the Vancouver Police Union, surveyed officers in the Vancouver Police Department. Of the 1,100 officers who were emailed questionnaires, 765 replied, a participation rate of more than 70 per cent, which is considered extraordinarily high for a social sciences study. The report found that approximately 32 per cent of the respondents were in the diagnostic range of PTSD. …

“Good nourishing mother is necessary”

17 August 2005 Maharishi Global Press Conference

“I keep on finding what more can be added to my program of world peace, and this came out to be a very very essential feature, equally important.

If you don’t handle the body properly, it will be difficult for the programme of Transcendental Meditation to maintain the body so that the body is driven by higher states of consciousness.

This is as much as is necessary—just as food is necessary—is good.

Good nourishing food is necessary.

Good nourishing home is necessary.

Same way, good nourishing mother is necessary.

Now mother is becoming fashion… And what the slogan is: ‘Equal rights to women’. Put mothers at home. If you let them come home tired, then children have no relaxed mother at home. Every generation of children will be weaker and weaker nation.

Look to America! American civilization is an example of this. Every generation of children are weaker and weaker and weaker and weaker. And a lot of crime.

But fortunately I see, mothers of America waking up. They have woken up—some of them—even if it is countable, some of them, that ‘our children are not properly fed.’

When the mother also comes tired from activity, father also comes tired of activity, the children look to whom? Empty skies.

Every generation will always be weaker and weaker and weaker and weaker.”

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.

He says it allows adults and kids to experience the deepest level of life.

“You’re given a mantra. The mantra you’re given in transcendental meditation is just like a law of nature. Designed for a specific purpose and that purpose is to turn the awareness from out out out 180 degrees to within within within. It’s easy and effortless it does not involve trying,” said Lynch.

And he says he wants to take that approach to Philly’s schools to stop violence, including some of the smallest behavior problems.

“Pretty books, painting the school room isn’t going to do a damn thing for this. You gotta get these kids diving in, transcending everyday,” he says. …”
