Sahaja Yoga meditation study to combat work stress

Looking at the range of clinical conditions that might be best suited to the intervention, it became obvious that work stress was well suited to the apparent effects of meditation observed in the previous trial.

Work stress is a pervasive, increasingly important issue in Western society, so recruitment for such a trial would be relatively easy and development of a simple strategy such as meditation as a method for dealing with the experience of work stress, was likely be welcomed by the community.

This study again aimed to explore the hypothesis that mental silence was the key factor in the clinical response.
