NEW YORK, Jan. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SiriusXM announced that it will launch Success without Stress, a six-week, limited run series hosted by Bob Roth, Executive Director of the David Lynch Foundation, one of the leading forces in the world of Transcendental Meditation (TM) and a teacher of the method for forty years.
Through his work with the David Lynch Foundation, Roth teaches Transcendental Meditation to people from all backgrounds—from veterans with post-traumatic stress syndrome to at-risk students to single mothers to CEOs to celebrities—to help them live healthy and happy lives. On Success without Stress, Roth will guide listeners through the basic principles and transformative powers of the 5000 year-old practice and illustrate how it can improve their daily lives mentally, physically and emotionally.
Success without Stress will launch on Wednesday, January 22 at 7:00 pm ET and air Wednesdays at this time through February 26 via satellite on Indie, SiriusXM channel 104, and through the SiriusXM Internet Radio App on smartphones and other connected devices, as well as online at siriusxm.com. It will be available on SiriusXM On Demand for subscribers listening via the SiriusXM Internet Radio App for smartphones and other mobile devices or online at siriusxm.com.
On the show, Roth will interview some of the most creative and successful people in the world including Jerry Seinfeld and David Lynch, as well as leaders from the worlds of military, business, finance and education, about their experience with TM, the role it plays in their lives, effects it has on their work and the impact of stress on success. Seinfeld's one-hour, in-depth conversation with Roth will kick of the series on January 22.
"Stress is the black plague of the 21st century, and published research reveals the antidote may be meditation, not medication," said Bob Roth. "Transcendental Meditation can unlock the clarity, peace of mind, energy, intuition, creativity and motivation we all have within ourselves, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to give SiriusXM listeners the keys to unlock their potential and reach their goals on Success without Stress."
"Bob Roth has helped some of the country's best known people to achieve their best life and great success through Transcendental Meditation," said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM. "Now through his new SiriusXM series, Bob brings that advice and wisdom to our listeners across the country to help them start the new year stress-free and inspired to accomplish whatever they want."
The benefits of meditation have been studied and found effective by the Harvard School of Medicine, the National Institutes of Health, the U.S. Department of Defense, the American Heart Association and the American Medical Association. Transcendental Meditation has been proven to reduce acute and chronic stress and stress-related disorders, decrease anxiety and depression, help individuals overcome addictions and simultaneously develop the brain and creative potential of the individual.
As the Executive Director of the David Lynch Foundation, Roth has helped to direct the introduction of the Transcendental Meditation (TM) program to over 250,000 at-risk students in 130 public and charter schools in the United States, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa. He also serves as national director of the Center for Leadership Performance, where he helped to oversee the introduction of the TM program in business, industry and governmental organizations. Roth has been a teacher of transcendental meditation for 40 years and is the author of the definitive book on the technique, Transcendental Meditation, which has been published in 21 languages.
