The War Comes Home: Transcendental Meditation

Retired U.S. Army Airborne Ranger Dusty Baxley explains how warriors can use meditation as a pressure-release valve and find relief from the overwhelming barrage of thoughts many struggle with.

Meditation is at the core of the "Save a Warrior" program. Studies show that transcendental meditation reduces post-traumatic symptoms like aggression, anxiety, and insomnia. The issue is getting warriors to embrace the process.


Excerpted from “The War Comes Home,” a documentary that follows two veterans of the Iraq war on the brink of suicide as they turn to a five-day emotional boot camp for a life-changing recovery.

Produced by Soledad O'Brien's Starfish Media Group in association with MediaStorm.
