What Clergy Say
“Transcendental Meditation is like a daily vacation. It’s a renewal for my body and calms my mind. I do a lot of writing and speaking, and it has given me a flood of creativity.
“I’ve always felt that the Transcendental Meditation technique was an aid to my Christian growth. It never replaced my Christian growth, but it was an aid to it. In fact, I decided to commit my life to Christ after I’d been practicing Transcendental Meditation for three months.
“I would say to any Christian—to anyone of any religion—that Transcendental Meditation would benefit your life. It’s a technique, a simple process that requires no belief. It is not a religion. There are so many thoughts that clutter the mind, and Transcendental Meditation is like taking a bath—it’s very cleansing and very refreshing.”
—Rev. Dr. Craig Overmyer, a pastoral counselor in Indianapolis, Indiana
“I wouldn’t be able to fulfill my responsibilities as a rabbi to the level I expect of myself without the Transcendental Meditation technique. I am better able to deal with the stresses of being with the sick and the dying, and the pressures of funerals, weddings, and bar mitzvahs because I have within me a considerable reservoir of calm. I am able to walk into a tense situation and naturally settle people down. They appreciate the ease and calm I bring to situations.
“But even more important, Transcendental Meditation has made me a better rabbi because it has given me an experience and insight into the profound depths of life. As a result, I am able to express a true depth of knowledge about my own tradition.”
—Rabbi Alan Green of Beth Israel Synagogue in Winnipeg, Manitoba
