Norman Rosenthal, M.D., discusses how times of crisis can offer extraordinary opportunities for growth—for both the individual and society. He explores how the unique experience of transcending during TM practice can be a transformative tool for both mind and body, leading toward the development of full human potential or the “Super Mind.”
Dr. Rosenthal is a world-renowned psychiatrist, public speaker, and best-selling author who was the first to describe Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), and pioneered the use of light therapy for its treatment. For 20 years he served as a senior researcher at the National Institutes of Mental Health, and is currently Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Georgetown University School of Medicine. Dr. Rosenthal is the author of two best-selling books on the Transcendental Meditation technique, Transcendence and Super Mind.
Dr. Rosenthal was interviewed for TM Talks by Mario Orsatti, Executive Director of the Center for Health and Wellness, a division of the David Lynch Foundation, on April 12, 2020.
