Below is an excerpt from a fabulous article about Transcendental Meditation (TM) from Times T2 supplement. It is a very personal story from Stella McCartney (daughter of Sir Paul) and at the same time highly informative about the benefits and usefulness of this simple mental technique.
The day her partner’s heart stopped recounts the “wake up call” moment blogger Geri Hirsch experienced after her young husband went into cardiac arrest. In this video, we learn about her health and wellness journey and how she coped with the life-changing moment.
‘You are born to be the ruler of the universe—you have only to learn Transcendental Meditation and practice to have the Constitution of the Universe in your simple awareness. If you do not have it in your awareness, then you do not have it. You may be very wealthy, but if the wealth is not in your awareness, you will always remain poor in the market. In reality you may be very wealthy, but if you do not have awareness of your wealth, you will always behave like a poor man.
‘The reality of life is very precious: you are immortal, you are invincible, you are Transcendental Consciousness. Just a few sittings of Transcendental Meditation will reveal to you what a wealth of bliss, what a wealth of happiness, what a wealth of Being you are. So, begin to live your inner reality and that is invincibility, that is immortality, that is human life. The human species, the consciousness and the intelligence of the human species, has that natural quality of immortality, invincibility.

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.
“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.”
