by Josh Dean | Illustrations by Brian Cronin | September 2013

This is the best no-nonsense, hip, informed article on Transcendental Meditation I have ever come across. See “6 Things TM Can Make You Better At” on page 1, listing  what TM will do for busy execs, including the results of a school project implemented by the David Lynch Foundation.

There’s a great video of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi giving a brief answer about what TM is and how it is taught. You won’t won’t find a reference that gives more insight into the technique itself and the teaching methodology used to teach it than this: Mantra and Transcendental Meditation explained by Maharishi.

To see what the whole article looks like with the illustrations, pick up a copy of the magazine, otherwise see it online by clicking on the title. Here is a scanned PDF of the article as it appears in the magazine. It’s an enjoyable read!
