FEATURE STORY:
FOOLPROOF YOUR
NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS!

Wendy Rosenfeldt, a Transcendental Meditation teacher from Australia, writes about positive decisions -- and how to keep them with the help of new scientific findings.
 
 
 

The relaxation gained from having a holiday can inspire you to start the New Year in a positive way; resolving to exercise regularly, cut out chocolate or be more organised.
 
Yet to form new patterns of behaviour we first have to change our brain.
 


SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH:
OVERCOMING FOOD
ADDICTION AND OVEREATING

What’s the difference between a dose of cocaine, and a donut? Turns out that not much at all, at least when it comes to how our brains respond to them...

 

In her latest book, The Hunger Fix, world-renowned nutritionist and researcher Dr. Pamela Peeke presents the latest scientific insingts into the mechanics of food addiction.
 
Dr. Peeke then goes on to lay out a practical, 3-stage program of 'healthy fixes': change the menu, exercise regularly, and do Transcendental Meditation. 
 

 

 PERSON:
EDWARD SAATCHI,
BUILDING A FACEBOOK
FOR ORGANIZATIONS

Edward Saatchi, a young Transcendental Meditation practitioner from the UK, is hitting it big with a program launched to manage President Obama’s 2012 campaign.

REPORT:
DIFFERENT KINDS OF MEDITATION PRODUCE DIFFERENT EFFECTS

The mental techniques used in diverse traditions of meditation are fairly dissimilar. Recent research has verified that these differences are reflected on the level of outcomes.

 
As weightlifting, tennis, and Pilates strengthen specific muscles and produce different overall effects in the body, so do focusing on a candlelight, repeating mantras or trying to dispassionately observe one’s mental content induce changes in different areas of the brain. The article published by the Maharishi University of Management lookes into three main types of meditation.

We wish you all a great, wonderful 2014!
