The congress will also give optional possibility for all participants to learn Transcendental Meditation (TM): It is a simple, natural, effortless technique practiced 20 minutes twice each day while sitting comfortably with the eyes closed.
The TM technique 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.
Over 350 published research studies have found that the TM technique effortlessly produces a state of restful alertness that markedly reduces stress, anxiety, and fatigue, and promotes balanced functioning of mind and body.
The teaching of TM will be arranged in a way that it will not interfere with the schedule of the conference, so as to make it easy for all conference participants to learn it. (For the Vaidyas from India who are participating in the conference, there is no additional cost for the Transcendental Meditation instruction.)
