The noted research psychiatrist and New York Times-bestselling author explores how Transcendental Meditation permanently alters your daily consciousness, resulting in greater productivity, emotional resilience, and aptitude for success.

Most of us believe that we live in only three states of consciousness: wakefulness, sleep, and dreaming. But there is so much more.

In Super Mind, clinical psychiatrist and bestselling author Norman E. Rosenthal, M.D., shows how the incredibly simple daily practice of Transcendental Meditation (TM) can permanently improve your state of mind during the routine hours of waking life–placing you into a super-mind state of consciousness where you consistently perform at peak aptitude.

In his most ambitious and practical book yet, Rosenthal shows how TM is more than a tool for destressing or for general wellness. It is a gateway to functioning physically, emotionally, and intellectually at levels we never knew we could attain. Written in Rosenthal’s trademark style of restraint and intellectual carefulness, Super Mind explores how we can aspire to so much more than we ever thought possible.

Norman Rosenthal is a psychiatrist and scientist who in the 1980s first described winter depression or seasonal affective disorder (SAD), and pioneered the use of light therapy for its treatment. Rosenthal was born and educated in South Africa and moved to the United States to complete his medical training. He established a private practice and spent 20 years as a researcher at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) where he studied the disorders of mood, sleep, and biological rhythms.

Rosenthal’s research with SAD led him to write “Winter Blues” and two other books on the topic. More recently Rosenthal has written a book on the Transcendental Meditation technique and conducted research on its potential influence on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). In total, he has written seven books, including one on the topic of jet lag, and published 200 scholarly papers.

Dr. Norman Rosenthal Introduces “Super Mind”

Norman E. Rosenthal, M.D. introduces his latest book, “Super Mind.”

In this 2:44 minute video Dr. Norman Rosenthal talks about Transcendental Meditation, his previous book, “Transcendence” and what drove him to write, “Super Mind, How to Boost Performance and Live a Richer and Happier Life Through Transcendental Meditation.”

With “Transcendence” Dr. Norman Rosenthal has thought he had said all that he had to say on the subject of Transcendental Meditation,” but he turned out to be wrong. As he continued with his own meditation practice he observed his own consciousness grow and become more awakened. This excited him and lead him to pursue a survey which involved over 600 meditators. The findings from this data are noted in “Super Mind” and help to make this book a one of a kind.
