Here is a very interesting article from the NY Daily News about US marines who learn meditation to reduce stress. It is a good example that meditation is more and more de-mystified and used in all areas of life to find balance.
According to the article the US military is facing a record suicide rate and thousands of veterans are seeking treatment for post-traumatic stress. Because of that the military has been searching for ways to reduce strains on service members burdened with more than a decade of fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Many soldiers were skeptic in the beginning but the course brought amazing results.
