Summary

One of the claimed benefits of Transcendental Meditation is increased creativity, although the literature neither supports nor negates such a claim. Four groups of 35 subjects each were studied over a six-month period and administered a battery of five creativity measures, both before and after the study period. One group of adults was enrolled in a Transcendental Meditation program; a second group of adults participated in a relaxation response program whose primary focus is the learning of a relaxed meditation technique; a third group, composed of college students, practiced within a Psychology of Creativity course, a variety of creativity enhancing techniques; finally, a fourth group of adults underwent no special treatment. Significant pre-post increases were obtained on four of the five creativity measures for only the Psychology of Creativity group, with no differences for the TM, the relaxation response, and the no treatment group. The claim that the practice of meditation leads to increased creativity is not supported. (Author)
