REPORT:
MEDITATION TOWN FAIRFIELD, 'DEFINES COMMUNITY ACTION'

In an article published by the Iowa daily Des Moines Register, the home town of the Maharishi University of Management is hailed as a role model for a closely-knit yet wonderfully open community of the 21st century.

 
Fairfield, Iowa – the town of the Golden Domes under which hundreds of people practice Transcendental Meditation each day – is an exceptional town. It goes green on its electricity bills, does ethical business, and blends global with local every step of the way.
 
The mayor Ed Malloy says, “In Fairfield, people go out and manufacture their dreams. When we all share the pride, everything changes.”

PERSON:
LIV TYLER

Actress, musician and model Liv Tyler shares her personal
experience of what it means to practice Transcendental Meditation. A video message recorded on the eve of a benefit concert in New York.
 

 
Among other things, Liv Tyler said:
 
“I grew up around a lot of people – friends, family – who were meditating. Meditation is an incredible way of centering myself, of calming myself, and really getting perspective on where I am. The best thing about Transcendental Meditation is that it’s such a personal thing. I felt like reaching out and searching for ways to soothe myself and to help myself.”

BOOK REVIEW:
"THEY CALLED ME COCHISE"

The story of a basketball legend who exchanged sex, drugs and rock ‘nroll for Transcendental Meditation



John Leslie Fultz was a star basketball player in the 1970s. His autobiographic novel is thus set in the era when getting high on drugs and free love was still in fashion. Reading it is like watching – in slow motion and with little hope of a turnaround in sight – your home team torn apart at the seams.

Until the technique of Transcendental Meditation enters the game.
 
 

 HEALTH BENEFITS:
60% CUT IN DEATH RATES FOR HEART DISEASE PATIENTS

The connection between our heart and brain is vital: a 10-year study showed that death rates of stroke and heart disease patients were slashed drastically by doing Transcendental Meditation at least once a day. 

 
Dr. Robert Schneider, lead researcher

The results death rates for patients assigned to the Transcendental Meditation group were cut on average (in comparison to the non-meditating group) by 48 per cent. Moreover, the mortality rates for regular practitioners – those who meditated at least once a day over the 5 year period – were reduced by an even more bewildering 60 per cent!

In an interview to Radio New Zealand, Dr. Robert Schneider explained the scientific logic behind this outcome.
