Transcendental Meditation returns to the Peninsula

Val Mailander, Ma, PhDVal Mailander, Ma, PhD, retired psychologist, probation officer and TV producer/actress is offering introductory lectures and group meditations on the Kitsap Peninsula. She has taught over 1,000 people over the past 40 years.

Mailander states that Transcendental Meditation (TM) is for everybody, students and elders, of all religions and philosophies. Further, she states that TM is a world renowned, scientifically validated technique that provides increased energy, intelligence and tranquility. “Peacefulness and happiness are two of the chief results of regular practice of Transcendental Meditation,” she said. “We feel that these qualities are contagious. The more people doing the TM technique in the area, the more peaceful and happy their business, family, and community become.”

TM has a considerable body of research behind it, showing it to be a very effective evidence-based tool for health and wellness. The National Institute of Health has funded more than 600 research studies documenting the many benefits from a regular TM practice. These benefits include reduced high cholesterol, decreased high blood pressure, reduced stress, anxiety and insomnia and reduced atherosclerosis.

Ongoing lecture series are held at Poulsbo Library monthly. The next introductory lecture is Feb. 4 from 12 – 2 p.m. Email reservations to vmailander [at] tm [dot] org. For further information, visit www.tm.org.
