Another study at Folsom State Prison in California found that transcendental meditation reduced rates of recidivism, ranging from 33% to 47%.
I wonder about the applicability of transcendental meditation versus zazen or vipassana… TM is awfully expensive and vipassana methods are super cheap. Is this indicative of TM being ‘superior’ in some way? I know I have seen positive, similar studies in regards to zazen.
I agree. However, from what I’ve heard, only TM and MBSR have been used as a gold standard for training, as it’s the programs are so standardized. But then again so is a Goenka retreat. Also, I think it’s secular at the lower levels, which helps get it into these kind of institutions
