Cult or Benign Cure-all? Life in Transcendental Meditation’s Hidden Society

Date: Mon, October 20, 2014
Time: 5:15 PM
A member will describe her life in the secret society.

Gina Catena, MS, CNM, NP; Contributor and Speaker, the International Cultic Studies Association

Catena will describe her life in the secret society that hides behind Transcendental Meditation. Drawing from 50 years and three generations of family influenced by TM’s founder, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Catena says that TM’s well-funded marketing programs hide an underbelly with mystical teachings, advanced celibate programs, a world government with golden-crowned Rajas and legal controversies. The meditation program made famous by the Beatles guru now makes inroads into public schools and the Veterans Administration through the David Lynch Foundation. Listeners can draw their own conclusions.
