Increased Tolerance in Secondary School Students

Secondary school students who learned the Transcendental Meditation program showed increased tolerance after 14 weeks, in contrast to control students from a high school. The same students also showed increased creativity, intelligence, innovation, energy level, self-esteem, decreased conformity, and decreased anxiety.
