I recently read an article in the Boston Globe about how Norwich University is doing a study on how Transcendental Meditation is helping alleviate stress for Military Personnel. While the study/program is catching some flack with disbelievers in the Military, the Cadets seem to be showing concrete evidence of reduced stress and increased strength and stamina in military activities. The article pointed out the obvious elephant in the room, that although meditation is assumed to only be for “hippies” and Easterners, it can also be practiced by conservatives who may not consider themselves “yogis” but would like to benefit from the practice all the same.
It’s a great article to read if you sign up for the Boston Globe online. Here is the link.
Otherwise, here’s a link to a clip from CNN
I’m happy to hear that our soldiers are getting some stress relief and I think meditation is an EXCELLENT way to help them through all that they have to deal with especially those suffering from PTSD
