In October in Washington DC, there was an event featuring some prominent physicians and educators, including several from America’s National Defense University and the University of Chicago, describing the evidence-based value of introducing Transcendental Meditation and its advanced programmes in colleges and high schools. In the following link, if you go to the 53 minute point (it is all good before that as well!), you will see a short video describing how TM is impacting education in several US cities. And following that, Dr John Wolf from the University of Chicago describes the remarkable research they are doing in some of Chicago’s most difficult inner city schools:

Catholic Health World on TM at Loyola of Chicago:
Dr. Gregory Gruener, vice dean for education and a neurology professor at Loyola University, Stritch College of Medicine, said he practices TM, and he openly credits it with reducing his own stress. “You have to embrace wellness and you have to find the time to take control of your own life,” he said. “Once you begin TM, that gets easier.”

Secret Ingredients. Produced by the Institute for Responsible Technology (which is not leading the march on the dangers of GMO’s). A compelling film which tracks several families who are trying to live a healthy life but are beset by numerous chronic ailments. Only after eliminating all foods which contain GMO’s and glyphosate do they have dramatic turnaround and begin to live a truly healthy life. The science is now clear on how damaging are GMO and glyphosate. Go here to see the trailer and a brief description, with several options on how you can see the full film for a few dollars.

– Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Science of Being and Art of Living
