Emily, I can see through my friends who are not TMers that they keep their anger, likes and dislikes hidden or under the surface of their conscious lives. I believe it contributes to stress and health problems, and possibly marriage issues. IOW, TM helps the person be unattached to personal issues. Meditation dissolves away hidden anger and attachments. As such, the person acts naturally and is unburdened by the stress of difficult relationships and experiences.

Would you care to expand on what you mean by "behavioral issues" being *eliminated* through TM? ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <jr_esq@...> wrote : Emily, DBT appears to be methodical and clinical in its approach. But TM, as explained by MMY in SOBAL is more natural in its application. TM is easy and does not need concentration or effort in eliminating stress and behavioral issues. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <emily.mae50@...> wrote : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dialectical_behavior_therapy https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dialectical_behavior_therapy I participated in a parent/teen group who were taught this. We weren't there to address suicide or personality disorders, just teenager-hood. It's comprehensive in its approach and was good to learn and practice in group format. I believe they should teach these skills in schools. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <jr_esq@...> wrote : Emily, What is DBT and can you post videos that explain this method? Thanks.
