Army Veteran Melvin Brown on Transcendental Meditation

Melvin Brown, U.S. Army Veteran, shares his story of trauma serving in the Afghanistan and Iraq war, and how learning Transcendental Meditation (TM) saved him and his family. After his first day of learning TM, he slept through the night for the first time in years. Click play to watch the full story.

Melvin Brown: “In that time period, I saw some gruesome things. I started having nightmares and had no idea it was going to turn into the terrible thing. I was looking for anything that would help me cope. If it gets any worse than what it is right now, I am going to lose it. I’m not going to be able to maintain.”

“I learned TM on my 48th birthday. I’ve slept through the night every night since, after my first meditation. It was just phenomenal. Within 90 days, I was off the anxiety pills, the anti-depressants, the pain medication, everything I was prescribed to fight the PTSD symptoms. My stress levels reduced.”

“I’m more content than I’ve ever been, more in love with my life, my wife, my kids, my job, my circumstances. Everything is better.”
