Strength in Stillness

Bob Roth is one of the world's most sought-after teachers of Transcendental Meditation – a highly effective form of meditation that goes beyond mindfulness to produce a deeper and long-lasting sense of peace. Praise for Bob Roth and Strength in Stillness: 'A masterclass. I love meditation, and I love this book.' ARIANNA HUFFINGTON 'Bob Roth taught me to meditate. This book will guide you to peace.' RUSSELL BRAND 'Bob Roth's Strength in Stillness is so needed right now. It will enhance our lives.' STELLA MCCARTNEY 'I am one-thousand per cent better when I do it. Meditation Bob: He's got it!' OPRAH WINFREY 'The most engaging guide to a technique I have come to rely on.' GWYNETH PALTROW 'It is the only time I have that stillness. I just love it so much.' ELLEN DEGENERES Every day we face a growing epidemic of stress. People of every race, age and income all make the same confession: 'I am so stressed'. There is a simple practice that dramatically changes how we respond to life's stresses: the Transcendental Meditation technique. With scientifically proven benefits, improved focus, sleep, resilience, creativity and memory, this method has a direct impact. For nearly five decades, Bob Roth has helped bring Transcendental Meditation to millions of people around the world – in 35 countries across Europe, North and South America, Asia and Africa. Once a sceptic, he learned the art from Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the foremost scientist of consciousness and meditation. As Co-Founder and Executive Director of the David Lynch Foundation, Bob teaches frequently at inner-city schools, veterans' hospitals, battered women's shelters, homeless shelters and prisons. Bob is also the go-to meditation teacher for leading figures in the worlds of media and business. Beautifully presented, Strength in Stillness is a simple, classic guide to calming your mind and body. Further praise for Strength in Stillness:'Bob's really helped us and our son, who was a stressed, anxious kid' HUGH JACKMAN 'I can't say enough about Bob Roth and TM. Stillness, true stillness, of both mind and body, is a gift.' MICHAEL J. FOX 'Transcendental Meditation is the single most important reason for any success I have had in my life. Strength in Stillness masterfully distills the essence of this technique.' RAY DALIO

I asserted that because the Beatles got him into transcendental meditation (TM) and he has credited TM as instrumental in Bridgewater’s success, the Beatles were therefore responsible for Bridgewater. “That’s right,” he laughed. “Now that you mention it. Yes.”

I spent the weekend at JazzFest (which to me is the best fest) and saw the Preservation Hall Jazz Band (which is my favorite JazzFest band) in New Orleans (which is one of my favorite cities in the world because it’s so cool—btw the food is as good as the music.)
