What started out as research for her PhD, has turned into something much larger.

Back in 2012, Leslee Goldstein, a faculty and research scholar at Maharishi University of Management, visited Uganda to study the effects of Transcendental Meditation on women.

In her research, she found that their self-efficacy and mental and physical quality of life greatly improved after practicing the technique just twice a day.

“When they could start to create more balance in their own lives, then they were able to do their job better as a mother, and I see it as the highest profession,” said Goldstein.

Now, Goldstein’s research is being published, but that’s not putting a stop to her work – it’s just inspired her to do more.

She says she plans on returning to Uganda and conducting more research in the area as well as in other parts of Africa.

Dr. Oz, vice-chairman of the Department of Surgery at Columbia University, touts the well-researched health benefits of the TM® program, including reduced heart disease and cholesterol. “But this is just the tip of the iceberg,” he says. “We all have within us a deep well of creativity, which we can access if we can settle down into those deep, calm places, those serene moments that Transcendental Meditation offers.”
