Transcendental Meditation: The effects of Vedic chanting on EEG patterns

Dr. Fred Travis is a leading pioneer on the study of EEG in people practicing the Transcendental Meditation technique and the development of higher states of consciousness through the practice of TM.

His latest research project is on the effects of listening to Vedic chanting on EEG patterns.

The preliminary findings of his research team  are:

“compared to brain patterns during TM practice, listening to Vedic recitation leads to higher coherence in the Alpha1 frequency, the frequency seen during transcending, and in the Theta frequency, the frequency of inner mental processing.”
