Preventing Terrorism and International Conflict: Effects of Large Assemblies of Participants in the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi Programs

" This study tested the hypothesis that group practice of the Transcendental Meditation (TM) and TM-Sidhi programs by approximately the square root of 1% of the world's population globally reduces terrorism and international conflict. For 3 periods during 1983-1985, ranging from 8 to 11 days, practitioners of these programs assembled in one place to practice in a group."

" The analyses found a 72% drop in terrorism (p < .025) and an average drop of 32% in international conflict (p values from < .005 to < .025) during the assemblies. These results are consistent with similar effects of smaller such assemblies on local populations and suggest that long-term implementation of groups could have a major impact on terrorism and international conflict worldwide."
