LAUSD Students and CEO Learn to Meditate


L.A. Unified is piloting an effort to teach self-care techniques to students, helping them identify and de-escalate tension so they can focus on academic success. Through a grant from the California Endowment, funded by the David Lynch Foundation, students and staff at Gage Middle School are practicing Transcendental Meditation (TM) for 10 minutes every morning and afternoon. Gage Principal Cesar Quezada built support within his school community to bring TM to students.

Read the full story here:

“This is part of a wellness effort to support schools in communities impacted by social and economic issues,” said Escudero, adding that TM is not a religion or philosophy. “We know that trauma is prevalent in these communities that affects families and children. By teaching students how to become calm and well-regulated and resilient in the face of adversity, they can be ready to learn.”


Sarah Hiner, President and CEO of Bottom Line Inc., is passionate about giving people the tools and knowledge they need to control their lives in areas such as women’s health, the challenges of the healthcare system, commonsense financial advise, and family life. Read about Sarah’s journey in learning and practicing the evidence-based Transcendental Meditation technique to help feel more refreshed and energized.

“I am fascinated watching the thoughts and images float through my mind. It’s like dreaming, but I am awake.”
