http://www.mum.edu Neuroscientist Fred Travis, PhD, explains the findings of his recently published research study that investigated the effects of the Transcendental Meditation program on Ugandan refugees who had severe PTSD symptoms. In 10 days, the symptoms were significantly decreased; after 30 days of TM, their PTSD symptoms had disappeared.
Dr. Travis explains: "Post Traumatic Stress is a natural response to an unnatural situation... Since the onset of Post Traumatic Stress is due to an experience, an experience which is the exact opposite in nature, may be able to turn off the amygdala and this is what transcending does during Transcendental Meditation.
The experience of trauma is out of control. When you transcend you're completely in control."
Dr. Travis is director of the Center for Brain, Consciousness, and Cognition at Maharishi University of Management. He teaches undergraduate and graduate classes in brain development, education, and Maharishi Vedic Science.

Maharishi University of Management (MUM) offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs in the arts, sciences, business, and humanities. The University is accredited through the doctoral level by the Higher Learning Commission.

Founded in 1971 by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the University features Consciousness-Based education to develop students' inner potential. All students and faculty practice the Transcendental Meditation technique, which extensive published research has found boosts learning ability, improves brain functioning, and reduces stress.

Maharishi University uses the block system in which each student takes one course at a time. Students report they learn more without the stress of taking 4-5 courses at once.

The University has a strong focus on sustainability and natural health, and serves organic vegetarian meals. The B.S. in Sustainable Living is MUM's most popular undergraduate major.
