Using an extensively-verified, simple-to-learn meditation technique, the Operation Warrior Wellness (OWW) initiative is changing the lives of hundreds of veterans and military personnel who are gripped by the nightmare of post-traumatic stress disorder.
Staggering statistics from the Veterans Administration show that more soldiers are dying from the trauma of combat in Iraq and Afghanistan than at the hands of enemy combatants. Over 400,000 veterans have been diagnosed with PTSD since 2001, and 22 veterans die from suicide each day.
"I used to be on 20 pills a day that were prescribed by the VA, many of which were narcotics that I became addicted to. Now I’m no longer on them, and TM has transformed my life into something sane again.” —Sgt. Lou Tavarez, Special Forces, United States Army
