Every day, we face a growing epidemic of stress, one that is damaging our physical and emotional health at younger and younger ages. Billionaire CEOs, moms managing households, college students, people of every race, age, and income all make the same confession: "I am so stressed." It is literally killing us. While there is no one single cure, there is a simple practice that dramatically changes how we respond to stress and life's challenges: the Transcendental Meditation technique.
"Transcendental Meditation is the single most important reason for any success I have had in my life. Bob Roth's Strength in Stillness masterfully distills the essence of this technique so that anyone can understand how it works - and why they should learn it."
"Strength in Stillness is a master class that makes Transcendental Meditation accessible for everyone. I love Bob Roth, I love meditation, and I love this book."
"I can't say enough about Bob Roth and Transcendental Meditation. Stillness, true stillness, of both mind and body, is a gift. TM taught me how to access that stillness and open that gift every single day."
Michael J. Fox
"People sleep better. People interact with other people better. I am one-thousand percent better when I do it. Meditation Bob: He's got it!"

Transcendental Meditation is a simple, easily-learned technique, practiced for 20 minutes twice a day, sitting comfortably in a chair with the eyes closed. During TM, the body gains a profound state of rest and relaxation while the mind is deeply settled yet wide awake and the brain functions with increased coherence. More than 350 peer-reviewed studies verify the physiological and psychological benefits of Transcendental Meditation for reducing stress and stress-related disorders, including hypertension, anxiety, depression, and insomnia, while increasing creativity, energy, and focus
