Catholic priest rescues thousands of columbian street children…using TM
When Father Mejia learned the Transcendental Meditation technique he immediately knew that this could be the key to helping the abandoned children on Colombia’s street. He took the training to become a TM teacher and opened a shelter for the thousands of children who had lost their parents and family in the drug wars, or ended up on the street for other reasons, without hope, without future.
Today Father Gabriel Mejia runs 52 such shelter, taking care of 3500 children. Thanks to his love and care many tens of thousands of street children found a way to deal with their traumas of the past and get a fresh new start. Shelters in all of Latin America are now starting to use his programs, with TM at the heart.
This video is a short summary of a full documentary about Father Mejia.

What people are saying
I have done so many meditation courses, but there was always something that felt not right; I missed something. I did not feel satisfied. When I learned TM, it felt just like coming home to me. Finally I have found it.
This technique is truly one of a kind.
I am meditating now for almost 30 years and my general health is excellent, especially when compared to my peers. Not only did it make my creativity grow remarkably, but also my ability to deal with a team of employees and actors in an inspiring and stimulating way.
I am still amazed on a daily basis to see how such a simple, natural technique can generate so many positive effects. And it is also nice to do.
