cosa dice la scienza

 

600 studi scientifici documentano l'efficacia della Formazione Maharishi

Il cuore della Formazione Maharishi è rappresentato dalla tecnica di Meditazione Trascendentale, la tecnica per lo sviluppo personale che da 40 anni desta grande interesse nella comunità scientifica, sia per i numerosi benefici che essa produce, che per il modo in cui viene insegnata. La tecnica, infatti, viene insegnata dovunque secondo un metodo standardizzato messo a punto da Maharishi, il che la rende idonea ad essere studiata sistematicamente dagli scienziati.

La ricerca scientifica sulla Meditazione Trascendentale è l’insieme di ricerche più ampio mai effettuato su qualsiasi programma di sviluppo del potenziale umano e di promozione della salute. Oltre alle ricerche sui cambiamenti fisiologici, psicologici, sociologici ed ecologici della Meditazione Trascendentale, sono stati pubblicati numerosi articoli relativi agli effetti per i campi del lavoro e del management.
