Abstract

This paper reviews retrospective, prospective, and case research on workplace applications of Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation technique for developing consciousness and human potential. The distinctive psychophysiological state of restful alertness produced by the Transcendental Meditation technique appears to improve employee health, well-being, job satisfaction, efficiency and productivity, in turn influencing organizational climate, absenteeism, and financial performance.

This research has been supported by a grant from the Schweisfurth Foundation of Munich, Germany. The authors also wish to thank the two anonymous reviewers for their comments and Sheila Swanson for editorial assistance.
