The world’s top fashion magazine has picked up that Transcendental Meditation (TM) is not just a passing fad, but a trend that is here to stay.
Here are 7 things Vogue has recently written about Transcendental Meditation:
1. Celebrities love TM
Katy Perry, Gisele Bündchen, Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson, Miranda Kerr, Gwyneth Paltrow, Lena Dunham, Tom Hanks, Jennifer Lopez, David Lynch… and many other top stars in music, movie and fashion industry are fans of TM.
2. TM is easy to do
TM involves no concentration nor control of thoughts. Instead, TM practice triggers alpha-1 waves in the brain — a state of mind that is naturally calm, relaxing and awake.
3. Doing TM pays off
The time you make for the twice daily 20-minute meditation practice will pay off. In a recent Vogue cover story, Katy Perry insisted: “It’s a game-changer. I will feel neuro pathways open, a halo of lights. And I’m so much sharper. I just fire up!”
4. TM’s positive effects are proven
Hundreds of peer-reviewed scientific studies have demonstrated that Transcendental Meditation can reduce stress, anxiety, depression, cholesterol levels, pain, the chance of congestive heart failure and stroke; and improve intelligence, learning ability, creativity, productivity, and longevity.
5. TM works in the modern world
The modern human condition is anxiety and stress ridden. The harder it becomes to sit still, the more benefit there is to structure and personal attention that Transcendental Meditation provides.
6. Learning TM is a quality-controlled process
Learning TM involves one-on-one sessions with a certified teacher over four consecutive days. Rigorous training for the teachers assures the effectiveness of the instruction.
7. With TM, you give back
While learning Transcendental Meditation can set you back $960, it gives you access to a certified teacher for the rest of your life. More importantly, charging those who can afford it full fees helps to provide the technique to at-risk youth, veterans, homeless people, domestic violence victims, and other vulnerable populations for free.
