The Video: On Tuesday, October 8, at the Paley Center for Media in New York City, a standing-room-only crowd of 350 professionals gathered to hear ten women leaders in business, media, education, and social services discuss the impact of their Transcendental Meditation practice for reducing stress and stress-related disorders while improving health, creativity, and performance.
The conference also highlighted the work of the DLF Women’s Initiative in bringing relief to victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, and funds raised were used to provide the TM technique to hundreds of women and girls served by the Family Justice Centers in New York City.
The Technique: Transcendental Meditation is a simple, natural, effortless technique practiced twenty 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 380 published, peer-reviewed research studies have found that the TM technique significantly reduces stress, anxiety, and fatigue, and promotes balanced functioning of mind and body.
