A NEW SCIENCE FOR PEACE
Research on Meditation, the Brain, Trauma, and Peace
Explore the impact of forty years of published research and clinical applications of the evidence-based Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique on improving health and reducing the symptoms of post-traumatic stress (PTS) among combat veterans, urban youth, and women who are survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. Data will also be presented on the findings of TM reducing trauma, crime, and violence in society as a whole.
