Transcendental Meditation allows the nervous system to access a special quality of rest different from ordinary rest and relaxation - and in some ways deeper than sleep. It allows the brain to break out of the cycle of stress. The frontal lobes of the brain are then able to coordinate mind and emotions, and you see life in perspective once again.
