A Wayne County judge who works with troubled youth has decided that she wants to follow a slow(ly) growing resurgence of something that was all the rage in the 1960's and 70's ... Transcendental Meditation.
If you have first hand experience being alive and didn't damage your brain with LSD experimentation or heavy pot use during the 60's and 70's (or you did damage your brain with LSD experimentation or heavy pot use during the 60's and 70's) you may recall hearing of Transcendental Meditation.
The mere mention of it a while back brought crazy images to my mind. Memories of oddball, flower carrying, bald headed, toga wearing weirdoes canvassing airport waiting areas spreading, oh I don't know, flower petals, peace/love/dove ...maybe??
Today some cool celebrities have hopped on board with this rad mod fad. Celebrities like Oprah and Dr. Oz....(so who in the hell wouldn't think this was wonderfully great and totally on the "up and up" if these two were riding the train...just saying)
According to some crap I read on Google they both have trained their staff(s) on the how to's and the benefits of daily meditation, Transcendental Meditation style.
Anyway, back to the Wayne Co judge that is interested in this stuff and what is happening in my neck of the woods.
A few months back it was decided that a couple of our staff would be trained in TM and that we would lead daily meditation with our youth once the youth were all trained in the practice.
I won (or lost, depending on what you think of this) the coin toss and was trained in Transcendental Meditation.
It's weird, it's odd, it's totally me.
I'm currently meditating as often as I am able to find time.
I love it and look very forward to seeing what it can do for our lovable thugs.
The cost of our training was picked up by The David Lynch Foundation... they will also fund the training for the kids.
It is outrageously expensive...
our loveables have the option of opting out (or their parents may opt them out)... so we won't be shoving anything down anyone's throat.
Please check out these links and give me your opinion(s)...
PS... Please don't be a hater.
