    A new report from the Center for Brain, Consciousness, and Cognition at Maharishi University of Management details how transcendental meditation is the only type of meditation that is accompanied by physiological measure and descriptions of transcendental experiences.  In the study of 52 subjects, they describe their transcendental meditation practice as a “state where thinking, feeling, and individual intention were missing, but Self-awareness remained.”  The researcher noted physiological changes with the practice like a shift in breath rate, skin conductance and EEG patterns.  The researcher said regular meditation allows a person to become more self-aware and able to handle the challenges of everyday life.
