Teaching Meditation to the Neediest: John Samuel Hagelin is an American particle physicist, three-time candidate of the Natural Law Party for President of the United States, and the director of the Transcendental Meditation movement for the US. He is also an educator, public policy expert, and leading proponent of peace. He is responsible for the development of a highly successful grand unified field theory based on the superstring–a theory that was featured in a cover story of Discover magazine. But it is his work teaching meditation to the homeless, prisioners, and at risk children that has really made headlines. www.hagelin.org
Dr. Hagelin is unique among scientists in being the first to apply this most advanced knowledge for the practical benefit of humankind. He has pioneered the use of unified field—based technologies proven to reduce crime, violence, terrorism, and war and to promote peace throughout society–technologies derived from the ancient Vedic science of consciousness. He has published groundbreaking research establishing the existence of long-range “field effects” of consciousness generated through collective meditation, and has shown that large meditating groups can effectively defuse acute societal stress–thereby preventing violence and social conflict, and providing a practical foundation for permanent world peace.
Dr. Hagelin, is the author of Manual for a Perfect Government, which describes how the grand unification of modern science and ancient Vedic Science can be applied to create an ideal administration. His current research focuses on the impact of meditation on crime rates, terrorism, and international conflict.
