Meditate America is a national initiative that is being launched on December 3, 2020, to bring the evidence-based Transcendental Meditation technique to everyone in the country who is at-risk and vulnerable to stress and trauma, in the same way that approved medicines are available to people. The first phase of the initiative is to conduct large-scale, randomized controlled trials on the benefits of the technique for healing trauma; reducing high blood pressure and risk of heart disease and stroke; and reducing anxiety and depression. Outcomes from the trials will be used to qualify TM as a medical intervention covered by private and public insurance companies. Once the technique has been approved for reimbursement, then anyone who suffers from stress and stress-related disorders will be able to learn TM at no cost to the individual. In this way, as many as 300 million people will be able to meditate, a development that will transform the health of the people and the entire nation.
