Achieving World Peace -
A Scientifically Verified Program

Don's company donates a percentage of all profits earned to causes; the majority of this is directed to projects and initiatives related to the Transcendental Meditation program.

Don credits his success to Transcendental Meditation, which he has practiced every day since 1970.

“TM is a simple, mental technique that allows the mind to settle down in a very profound way. It is scientifically verified and not based on a belief system. It has made a huge contribution to my creativity because, the more settled and relaxed my mind is, the more I can see opportunities that I would otherwise overlook.”

Don has found Transcendental Meditation to be an extremely valuable tool in his business. " At SEI we help sponsor any employees who want to learn the Transcendental Meditation program. It’s amazing to watch the resulting positive changes in their lives.”

Research shows that people who practice TM have, on average, 80% less heart disease, strokes and cancer. If our employees are healthier, they’re going to be happier and more productive; so it helps our business."

Don is a Director on the Canadian board of the Brahmananda Saraswati Foundation, an organization dedicated to the promotion of Vedic technologies of consciousness for creating world peace. These Vedic technologies include Transcendental Meditation and its advanced techniques.

Don Arney“The Brahmananda Saraswati Foundation raises funds to permanently fund a rapidly growing group of dedicated peace professionals, now 1,500 strong, that is large enough to create permanent world peace and global prosperity. This is a project which is very special to me because it is real and it is happening. Imagine having a world with reduced wars and conflict, an improved economy, lower crime rates and accidents. Extensive peer reviewed research shows that this ancient technology of consciousness DOES create world peace and deserves the most serious consideration by all citizens and governments worldwide.”

"Violent behaviour is rooted in the brain. The only way to prevent violent behaviour is to restore balanced brain functioning. The Brain-Based Approach to peace restores balanced neurological functioning on the individual and global scale." John Hagelin, President Global Union of Scientists for Peace

"This work… deserves the most serious consideration."
 "The claim can be plausibly made that the potential impact of this research exceeds that of any other ongoing social or psychological research program. The research has survived a broader array of statistical tests than most research in the field of conflict resolution. I think this work, and the theory that informs it, deserve the most serious consideration by academics and policy makers alike."

"We have to take these studies seriously."
"In the studies that I have examined on the impact of the Maharishi Effect on conflict, I can find no methodological flaws, and the findings have been consistent across a large number of replications in many different geographical and conflictual situations. As unlikely as the premise may sound, I think we have to take these studies seriously."
