Coherence Effect

“35 years of coaching left me so stressed out and tired all the time. But using the strategies in this book [Transcendental Meditation and the ancient health science known as Ayurveda], I’ve had so many health benefits, plus calmness, sleeping well, and just happier and gentler with people. I had no idea this could happen—it’s a true game changer.”

—Patricia Glispin, Hall of Fame Women’s Basketball Coach, Clark University, Worcester, MA

What is the Coherence Effect?

Coherence heals. The coherence effect is the healing effect of creating order in the mind and body. All diseases are disorders, and the antidote is to create order in the disordered part of the body. That is what modern medicine seeks to do with its pharmaceuticals. But if  we want lasting health, we need to apply the coherence principle of creating order to what keeps us healthy on a daily basis—to our diet, exercise, and rest and relaxation or meditation practices. The book shows how to do this through the Transcendental Meditation program and Ayurveda.

A recent article (adapted from the book) published in Thrive Global describes how creating coherence in the mind and body is essential to health and to staying alive.  Go to What is Life? (A Scientific Perspective) (
