Tom North tells how Transcendental Meditation Was His Saving Grace on SiriusXM Talk Show, “Success Without Stress”, with Host Bob Roth

Hugh Jackman and Tom North are the scheduled guests on SiriusXM Indie Talk Radio-XL Channel 104, “Success without Stress” with host Bob Roth, airing Friday Jun 27, 2014 at 7:00 pm ET. Bob Roth, is the director of The David Lynch Foundation and he talks to some of the most creative and successful people in the world, as well as leaders from the worlds of military, business, finance and education, about their experience with Transcendental Meditation, the role it plays in their lives, effects it has on their work and the impact of stress on success.

Award-winning author and inspirational speaker, Tom North, tells how Transcendental Meditation (TM) was his saving grace. He is the author of, True North, The Shocking Truth about “Yours, Mine and Ours”- An inspirational story of survival and hope. In the book, North reveals how he survived the ordeal of living with an abusive stepfather that drove him to depression and drugs, and deprived him of his self-worth – and a mother who protected the perfect “movie family image” at all costs.  But the book is much more than an inspiring and powerful account of a man who rose to success against all odds. It’s also a story of how TM brought peace to Tom North and saved his life.

All hope seemed lost as Tom realized that he was caught in a prison and there was no way out. When he finally left home, he traveled on a journey of survival, self-discovery, and healing that began when he attended an introduction to TM. North remarks, “By the age of 22, I was a physical mess.  I had an ulcer and 2 hernias.  My doctor told me I had the body of an out of shape 40 year old!  When I started practicing TM everything changed – my ulcer went away without medication and I started to heal. As the extreme stress I experienced began to subside, my mind and heart became free and my life changed dramatically, for the better!” According to the David Lynch Foundation, studies show that TM is an effective tool for healing, especially for PTSD and trauma survivors. North adds, “TM provides a foundation of emotional strength, health and spiritual connection for me. I still meditate twice a day, every day.”
