How TM Enhances Their Lives
Grammy Nominated Singer/Songwriter Patrice Rushen on TM
"Development as a practitioner of the art of music demands of the artist, to feel, to listen, to absorb and to submit to Truth. Years of practicing music teaches us ultimately, that when one is finely trained and tuned, it becomes apparent that the knowledge and technique needed to respond appropriately, musically, gives one the confidence to then get out of the way so that the music can happen. Its truth moves through you.
Transcendental Meditation as a practice and technique allows for the most natural acquisition of knowledge and courage to stay in the moment and to quietly surrender to the calm of the truth.
There's so much to be gained by understanding the power of calm.
TM has been for me a gentle force, pointing me towards my truth and purpose ... Teaching me how to recognize and reflect responsible, positive energy in my art and in every aspect my life."
"I do Transcendental Meditation. I meditate two times a day or at least I try to. It changed my whole entire life. If there’s anything or any gift that I could give to the world, it would be Transcendental Meditation.” - David Banner, artist
"One of the biggest changes in my life is that I meditate every day. Four years ago, my best friend died. It was so devastating to me. I had a weird kind of PTSD... I started getting panic attacks. Before that, I didn’t think they were a real thing. I remember my girlfriend having them, and I was like, ‘Girl, just breathe,’ you know? Just relax.'”
“I was getting them three to five times a day, they wanted to put me on anti-anxiety medication, but I was like, I really don’t wanna take drugs, that’s just not me. I’d had a meditation teacher a couple years before, so she gave me a refresher course. The day that I started Transcendental Meditation, it was as if I was taking a pill. They went away. So anyway, that’s my thing. I meditate 20 minutes, twice a day.” ~ Sanaa Lathan, actor
