What's the talk about?
Stephen Makin grew up in the Maraharishi European Sidhaland, a community where members believe that they can flying to bring world peace. They practice Transcendental Meditation twice daily.. After a childhood involving the adults forming the Natural Law Party, Yagyas that can predict (and alter) the future, and alternative medicine, he found the only possible teenage rebellion was to run away to medical school.
He is now a clinical lecturer at the University of Glasgow combing treating elderly patients with teaching medical students.
The talk will cover the background of the Transcendental meditation movement which claims that meditation can lead to lower blood pressure, less stress, reduced heart disease, and world peace. As well as the experience of changing your belief and leaving cults in general.
