Read about the Baskinta village peace project, where fighting stopped as soon as 1% of the population learned the TM technique.

Syrian Peace Petition

 24th Jun 2014

Syria meditation groupThe arrival of ISIS, a savage new terrorist army rampaging through Iraq makes the need to act all the more urgent and important.

Please read this article about earlier TM-based peace projects and then sign our petition to Nick Clegg (UK Deputy Prime Minister) and William Hague (UK Foreign Secretary). We want to persuade them to arrange for the UK government to sponsor a TM-based peace initiative in the Middle East.

Both of these two senior politicians have been using the Transcendental Meditation technique for most of their adult lives. They should already know about the extensive research into dramatically successful TM-based peace projects. As such, these two senior UK government leaders are in a unique position to play a key role in stopping the war in Syria.

We may be pushing at a half open door. There is a real chance that we can get these two UK cabinet members to try something that is already proven to work. Instead of sending aircraft carriers or predator drones that simply perpetuate the problem, instead of endless talks and economic sanctions that never seem to work, lets persuade the UK government and its allies to send a group of specialist meditators. We know from 50 previous research studies that with enough meditators we can stop the war in a few days. Believable or not, this is simply a fact.

Previous research proves that a group of specially trained meditators would bring peace to Syria

RhodesiaFifty research studies show how groups of specialist meditators known as TM-Sidhas, can have a positive impact on the wider community.

Astonishing as it sounds, the research reveals how a group of just 2,000 TM-Sidhas could stop the war in Syria in a matter of days.

No physical, social or political interaction between the meditating group and the host population is required to produce this effect. These scientific experiments show that with group meditation, the peace process happens discreetly, spontaneously and in silence. As unbelievable as this assertion may seem at first hearing, it is easier to understand in the light of recent theoretical discoveries.

Modern physics tells us why this initiative can work

Unified Field chartAdvances in physics are giving us a more unified understanding of the fundamental building blocks of life and the universe. Essentially, modern physicists are exploring what are known as ‘Unified Field’ theories. These theories identify a single, universal, ‘unified field of intelligence’ as the ultimate basis of the material and phenomenal universe.

What this means is that you, I and everyone else and everything around us are all an integral part of this unified field. This unified field is essentially self sufficient, as it creates everything from within itself.

Significantly, theoretical exploration also shows that an important characteristic of the unified field is that fundamentally it is also a field of consciousness. The explanation of this characteristic is that as the unified field is the home of all the qualities of creation it must also include qualities such as intelligence, dynamism, and self-awareness, the three defining qualities of consciousness. The profound implication of this is that what we see as our individual consciousness is not a product of our individual minds but the very source or essence of our material existence. All life, including us as human beings, is an integral part of this field of consciousness, just as individual drops of water merge to form an ocean.

But the exciting news goes beyond just theoretical physics. Extensive published research demonstrates that in Transcendental Meditationthe most settled state of human awareness, where our individual consciousness transcends intellectual thought and emotion, we are actually experiencing the unified field directly on the feeling level.

How to experience the unified field

The easiest and quickest way to reach this sublime state of expanded awareness is through the meditation technique known as Transcendental Meditation (TM). We now know this from both inference and scientific measurement.

Researchers have observed that this state of expanded awareness is actually identifiable in physiological terms. When TM practitioners meditate, then at the precise moments of transcending thoughts and emotions, a whole range of physiological factors change including the spontaneous onset of highly coherent brain wave functioning.

Coherent brain waves resonates across a community

Amazingly, the coherent brainwaves experienced during Transcendental Meditation do not just reduce stress and create calm, tranquillity and more integrated thinking for the meditators themselves. Coherent brain waves actually create a powerful broadcast effect on the wider non-meditating population as well. Coherent brainwave functioning literally resonates across the unified field and reduces stress in everyone else in the vicinity of the meditator. The more meditators there are the wider the effect.

It gets even better.
TM-Sidhas Syria peace groupAdvanced practitioners of Transcendental Meditation known as TM-Sidhas can greatly enhance this stress reducing effect in society. They do this by applying their attention in the subtlest way to life supporting values during their meditation sessions.

This stress reducing effect of a group of TM-Sidhas on the wider society is very systematic and has become known as the 'Super Radiance' effect.

In fact the effect is so consistent, specific and measurable that we can now predict exactly how many of these specialist meditators are required to trigger a rapid step change, from hostility and aggression, to positivity and harmony within any given populace.

Fifty field studies show how Super Radiance rapidly brings peace to any situation

Although this concept may seem counter intuitive, it is backed up by fifty field studies that prove beyond all reasonable doubt that the idea works. Collectively, these studies clearly and unequivocally show that all that is required to create a positive shift in consciousness in the whole Middle East is a Super Radiance group of 2,000 TM-Sidhas based somewhere in the region.

Experience, from trouble spots like the Lebanese civil war in the eighties, the Croatian civil war and Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) indicates that such a lift in consciousness would spontaneously stop the fighting and killing, dampen down the rage and fury and get people talking. Crucially this shift in consciousness would allow space for the negotiation of sustainable political structures agreeable to all sides and so enable people to live together in peace.

Nick Clegg 2
Nick Clegg is Deputy Prime Minister in the UK coalition government and is a
regular practitioner of TM

Nick Clegg, and William Hague are two of the top four cabinet ministers in the UK. Together they have the power and influence to make a real difference. But so far they have done nothing. No doubt they will not take this novel and powerful approach unless they feel public support is behind them.

Please join our petition to persuade the UK government to sponsor a TM-Sidha based peace group while there is still a chance to avert further tragedy. With 10,000 signatures let us persuade Nick Clegg and William Hague to take action. With your support we can save tens of thousands of lives and stop the Syrian civil war further escalating conflict in the region.

Importantly, a permanent group of 2,000 TM-Sidhas will help pacify the turbulence and terrorism in Iraq, soften the rivalry between Sunni and Shiite Muslims in the Middle east, reduce the Iranian government's urge to protect itself with nuclear weapons and help heal the longstanding rift between Israel and Palestine.

In other words, success with this project would introduce the world community to a new means to create peace wherever violence, conflict and aggression arises.

“I think the claim can be plausibly made that the potential impact of this research exceeds that of any other ongoing social or psychological research program. It has survived a broader array of statistical tests than most research in the field of conflict resolution. This work and the theory that informs it deserve the most serious consideration by academics and policy makers alike.”

David Edwards Ph.D., Professor of Government, University of Texas at Austin

This is not an official website of the international Transcendental Meditation organisation, but the trustees of the World Peace Group and the Natural Health Research Trust are fully supportive of ithe Transcendental Meditation organisation's goals for world peace and its researched­based programs.

The aim of the article is to bring the potential of these programs to the attention of as many people as possible.
