Instant New York Times Bestseller A simple, straightforward description of Transcendental Meditation and its benefits from world authority Bob Roth. Oprah Winfrey and Jerry Seinfeld. Ray Dalio and Ellen DeGeneres. Gwyneth Paltrow and Howard Stern. Tom Hanks and Gisele Bündchen. What do they have in common? The answer is a Transcendental Meditation teacher named Bob Roth, who has spent the past forty-five years helping many thousands of people access their innate creativity and power through this simple, nonreligious technique. Roth’s students range from titans of business and the arts to federal prisoners, from war-scarred veterans to overworked moms and dads. Medical experts agree that the epidemic of stress is damaging our physical and emotional health at younger and younger ages. While there is no one single cure, the Transcendental Meditation technique is a simple practice that dramatically changes how we respond to stress and life’s challenges. With scientifically proven benefits— reduced stress and anxiety, and improved focus, sleep, resilience, creativity, and memory, to name a few—this five-thousand-year-old technique has a clear and direct impact on our very modern problems. Once a skeptic, Roth trained under Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the twentieth century’s foremost scientist of consciousness and meditation, and has since become one of the most experienced and sought-after meditation teachers in the world. In Strength in Stillness, Roth breaks down the science behind Transcendental Meditation in a new, accessible way. He highlights the three distinct types of meditation—Focused Attention, Open Monitoring, and Self-Transcending—and showcases the evidence that the third, Self-Transcending, or Transcendental Meditation, is a uniquely accessible, effective, and efficient way to reduce stress, access inner power, and build resilience. Free of gimmicks, mystical verbiage, and obscure theory, Strength in Stillness offers a clear explanation for how Transcendental Meditation can calm the mind, body, and spirit.

Many people go through life feeling lost, afraid, anxious, angry, depressed, and confused. They are confined by the prison of their negative thoughts, living out their lives unsure of who they are, what their purpose is, what it means to be alive, and how they can find happiness and live life peacefully. This feeling of separation from the world is a result of not understanding our true nature. We fail to realize who we are at our deepest level and, as a result, we experience a great deal of suffering. This suffering is felt around the world and it causes people to act out in violence, harming one another, harming the planet, and harming themselves. The state of the world is a reflection of our inner state of being. We have forgotten our true nature, and until we remember who we are and find peace within ourselves, we will never be able to have peace on this planet. Full of practical wisdom and intuitive insights, "Stillness" speaks directly to your heart and mind, providing you with valuable information to help you awaken to your true nature, and find peace in your life regardless of your circumstances. Each of us is capable of living a life of peace, joy, and bliss, and it starts with quieting our minds, bringing our awareness back into this moment, and connecting to the source of stillness within us.
