Meditation In Education
- Here is an updated and slightly altered version of a letter we sent
all the School Board members in the 37 largest cities, all the
Governors, Senators, and many members of the House. Please consider
using it, or something similar to help advance the concept of having
Meditation added to the curriculum of our schools.
Meditation in Education
First Jonesboro and Columbine. Could anything have been done to
prevent these tragedies? Can we do something to help prevent future
devastation? Were the students in these schools ever given the
knowledge of how to deal with stress in a healthy way, and will these
methods be made available in the future? Will they be able to deal
with the fears 9/11 brought about and the similar ones they will be
We go to school and have facts, theories, data, etc., fill our minds
and then are miserable ever after. For instance, how often has the
time you devoted to studying geometry been something you used in your
life? Has the study of any subject you took in school made you a
happier, clearer-thinking person? Did you learn anything in any of
your classes that helps you deal with the stress you now face? Do you
want your children to face the same outcome? If not, please consider
helping the Meditation Society of America in its quest to have
meditation added to the curriculum of every grade level in every
school, from kindergarten through college.
There is no better stress management method than meditation. It is
surest way to gain control over your mind, body and emotions. It can
be easily learned and has a 100% positive result on everyone, of any
age, who meditates. We all need to change this generation of
stressed-out, road-raging, anxious and depressed people to a nation
clear thinking, serene, mentally, emotionally, and physically healthy
citizens. Change our children from Ritalin/alcohol/Prozac/drug users
to the naturally healthy and happy kids they should be. Meditation
do this more cost-efficiently and without any negative side effects
than any other way.
Please write, call, or email your school board, and your local, state
and national politicians and let them know that you want Meditation
taught in our schools. Contact your local and the national media
sources. There are dozens of methods and concepts freely offered on
Meditation Station http://www.meditationsociety.com the web site of
the Meditation Society of America, as well as on many other fine web
sites that share this wonderful knowledge with all who seek it.
Please feel free to contact us with your comments and please consider
joining us in this project. It is inevitable that meditation will one
day be offered in our schools. Let's make it happen sooner than later.
Peace and blessings,
Bob Rose, President,
Meditation Society of America
- I'm afraid that will cause profit cuts to the pharmaceutical
companies and they will lobby the government to prevent that.
