Meditation in Education
First Jonesboro and then Columbine. Could anything have been
done to prevent these tragedies? Can we do something to help prevent
future devastation? Were the students in these schools ever given the
knowledge of how to deal with stress in a healthy way, and will these
methods be made available in the future? Will they be able to deal with
the fears 9/11 brought about and the similar ones they will be facing?
We go to school and have facts, theories, data, etc., fill our
minds and then are miserable ever after. For instance, how often has the
time you devoted to studying geometry been something you used in your
life? Has the study of any subject you took in school made you a
happier, clearer-thinking person? Did you learn anything in any of your
classes that helps you deal with the stress you now face? Do you want
your children to face the same outcome? If not, please consider helping
the Meditation Society of America in its quest to have meditation added
to the curriculum of every grade level in every school, from
kindergarten through college.
There is no better stress management method than meditation. It
is the surest way to gain control over your mind, body and emotions. It
can be easily learned and has a 100% positive result on everyone, of
any age, who meditates. We all need to change this generation of
stressed-out, road-raging, anxious and depressed people to a nation of
clear thinking, serene, mentally, emotionally, and physically healthy
citizens. Change our children from Ritalin/alcohol/Prozac/drug users to
the naturally healthy and happy kids they should be. Meditation can do
this more cost-efficiently and without any negative side effects than
any other way.
Please write, call, or email your school board, and your local,
state and national politicians and let them know that you want
Meditation taught in our schools. Contact your local and the national

the web site of the Meditation Society of America, as well as on many
other fine web sites that share this wonderful knowledge with all who

with your comments and please consider joining us in this project. It
is inevitable that meditation will one day be offered in our schools.
Let's make it happen sooner than later.
