The Video: Produced and edited by the David Lynch Foundation, as part of their Operation Warrior Wellness initiative to bring TM to 10,000 veterans and their families. TM was found to reduce symptoms of PTSD by 40-55% in one study, and another suggests it may help prevent PTSD.
The Technique: Transcendental Meditation is a simple, natural technique practiced 20 minutes twice each day while sitting comfortably with the eyes closed. It is easy to learn and enjoyable to practice, and is not a religion, philosophy, or lifestyle. Over six million people have learned it — people of all ages, cultures, and religions — and over 350 published research studies have found that TM markedly reduces stress, anxiety, and fatigue, and promotes balanced functioning of mind and body.
