Did you know that science is showing that there are forms of meditation that actually improve our health, and even the well being of those around us? Studies are also showing that communities and even regions at war become more peaceful as a result of meditating groups in the vicinity. The act of meditation alters the collective energy field of humanity creating more order and coherence that in turn leads to decreased stress and its associated societal consequences.
More than 600 studies on the health benefits of the Transcendental Meditation technique have been conducted at 250 independent universities and research institutions including Harvard, Cornell, University of Michigan and UCLA Medical Schools.
Nearly fifty research studies verify that when groups of individuals practice Transcendental Meditation and its advanced techniques, an influence of coherence and harmony is radiated from the group to the surrounding communities. This increased societal coherence and harmony is measured by trends such as lower crime rates, fewer accidents, improved overall quality of life, improved economic trends, and reduced conflict and violence. For example, a university and its faculty practicing these techniques can influence these trends for an entire city. As the group size grows, it can influence an entire state or nation!
