A new study showing that just one month of practicing the Transcendental Meditation technique can significantly improve symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) received coverage in scores of publications in the U.S. and India.

As described in the February 24th article at Excellence in Action, the study found that 80% of the subjects had their symptoms reduced to below the clinical level according to a standard measure of PTSD.

The news was covered by publications such as Healio, an online source for mental health professionals, PsychCentral, a leading independent mental health and psychology network, ScienceCodex, Hindustan Times, OutlookIndia, The Asian Age, and Deccan Chronicle.

The research was supported by funding from the Wege Foundation of Grand Rapids, Michigan, and by the Maharishi Foundation.
