Consciousness-based education and it’s astronomical growth
Contracts have been signed to have 27.5 million children learn TM in schools around the world. Europe now has 52 EU-funded TM-in-schools ‘clusters’.
Dr Tony Nader’s recent videos have been viewed 40 million times, and the world’s largest publisher has contracted with him to publish his next book this autumn.
25 prominent US hospitals are starting pilot studies on TM for reducing stress and strengthening immunity in doctors and nurses, and 8 Veterans Administration hospitals are beginning the largest-ever study on meditation and PTSD.
And most promising: millions of people world-wide are now taking responsibility for their own health, many for the first time. “You tell me your ill and I’ll give you my pill!”, is losing its luster, and people are demanding evidence-based knowledge: they’re requesting info on immunity and prevention through diet, meditation and common sense life-style wisdom.

More videos (non-movement) worth watching:
The Game Changers (documentary): It turns out that many of the world’s most elite athletes, and health and strength icons, have in the last few years become vegetarian, or almost entirely vegetarian/vegan. Arnold Schwarzeneggar, Jackie Chan, Serena and Venus Williams, Novak Djokovik, Lewis Hamilton, 14 members of the NFL’s Tennessee Titans, Tom Brady, some of the world’s strongest men and women, etc.
Arnold said he used to make ‘real men eat meat’ commercials: “It is all marketing. We sell people on how they need to eat meat to be strong, and then we sell them on taking the drugs they need to try to get well!” I hadn’t heard about this documentary before, but it is science-based, entertaining and thought provoking. Click on this, watch the trailer, and you’ll likely want to watch the whole thing…: https://gamechangersmovie.com/
