Read how a global peace project in 1983-84 had an immediate impact on the civil war in Lebanon.
The Lebanon peace process involved a coherence creating group of TM-Sidhas in Jerusalem. The group size fluctuated from day to day, but for many days the group was large enough to achieve the super radiance effect (What is the super radiance effect?) for both Israel and adjacent Lebanon.
During the peace process social and economic data demonstrated an improved quality of national life (QOL index) as measured by:
During the course of the Lebanese peace process researchers observed significant improvements in each variable in the index. Time Series Analysis took into account alternative causes (seasonal changes, weekends, holidays, temperature, etc.).
The graph below shows the strong correlation between the number of TM-Sidhi meditators in the Jerusalem coherence group and a composite index of all the above variables.

The early Lebanese peace process outcomes were later replicated in 7 consecutive studies over two years during the peak of the war.
The results of these interventions confirmed the earlier research and included:
The likelihood that these combined results were due to chance is less than one part in 1019. This astoundingly low level of probability makes the TM-based technology for reducing societal stress and conflict the most rigorously established phenomenon in the social sciences.
