The Video: Bob Roth speaks on the Transcendental Meditation technique and the work of the David Lynch Foundation at Google Zeitgeist in Phoenix, Arizona, on Monday, September 15. Google Zeitgeist is a series of intimate gatherings of top global thinkers and leaders. Keynote speakers included former Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter and Google Chair, Eric Schmidt.
The Technique: Transcendental Meditation is a simple, natural, effortless technique practiced 20 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 350 published research studies have found that the TM technique markedly reduces stress, anxiety, and fatigue, and promotes balanced functioning of mind and body.
