11 December 2018 - Keelan Dimick is one of five finalists competing for the prestigious 2019 American Pianists Awards / Cole Porter Jazz Fellowship, which offers $100,000 (US) in support and career advancement. In an interview after his recent concert in the Awards series in Indianapolis, Indiana - Keelan spoke of how Transcendental Meditation 'alleviates any stress that's in my head. And stress constricts creativity. So when that's gone, it's easier to just let music write itself because the best musicians start with a seed and the music just writes itself. Meditation helps bring that about.' The 27-year-old Fairfield, Iowa native will participate in the Awards Finals 5-6 April in Indianapolis. (more)

Transcendental Meditation: A 'timeout' for oneself to reduce emotional stress, increase happiness
12 November 2018 - Neither suppressing emotions nor 'telling someone off' really helps in handling emotional stress - and both create negative effects for oneself and others, says health writer Linda Egenes. She describes a completely different solution: Transcendental Meditation, which 'releases the tensions that may have built up during the day, including the emotional stressors'. Over time 'you can feel your baseline for stress changing - you're just not as reactive as you were before.' Research has shown that TM reduces stress hormones and anxiety, and increases neurochemicals associated with happiness and fulfilment. She quotes Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Transcendental Meditation programme: 'Fill the mind with that great happiness which knows no end, let the mind be saturated with absolute bliss, and then the undertaking of any action, whatever it may be, will be performed in all joyfulness.'

India: The Economic Times - 'Invest in rest'
7 November 2018 - 'Keeping the brain well rested and, thus, alive, creative, and capable is imperative to maintain the growing pace of multifaceted progress in human life,' writes Aditi Shrivastava in The Economic Times (India). ' ''The human brain is the best blessing of the Creator,'' Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Transcendental Meditation programme, once said in a lecture.' Ms Shrivastava goes on to explain, 'There is scientific evidence to prove that the rest that we get in 20 minutes of Transcendental Meditation is even deeper than deep sleep. TM is a simple and effective meditation technique to calm the mind by giving it rest, gain mental peace, harmonise brain function and get it ready for more action.' (more)
