Her father was a successful Hollywood director, her mother was a famous actress, Mia Farrow is her sister and John Lennon wrote a song about her… but the big stage didn’t hold any attraction for this lady, as a matter of fact, it was quite the opposite. She got interested in Transcendental Meditation, and it transformed her life. She’s here with me today to talk about her life and this special type of meditation that she says can transform your life…

Her name is Prudence Farrow Bruns, she received her PhD from Berkley in Sanskrit and she’s an expert and highly respected teacher of Transcendental meditation, an accomplished film producer, speaker and author of the book called “Dear Prudence- The Story Behind the Song”. It was named one of the best Indie books of 2015 by Kirkus Review, and it talks about the song that John Lennon wrote about her.
She talks about growing up in the 60’s as a teenager in those dangerous and uncertain times with wars, and threats of wars, drugs, and rebellious teenagers looking for answers in places the world hadn’t looked before. Her search led her to Transcendental Meditation a practice where you go inward for the answers to life’s problems instead of looking for them on the outside.
This is something that worked for her and she took to it with everything she had. She even went to India to go further into her meditation by learning from the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi himself. It was in India that she finally completed her healing and from there she later started teaching TM and has been doing it for over 40 years.
She says anyone can learn it and the benefits to one’s health is enormous. This is part 1 of a two- part show. Tune in to next week’s show as we talk about MY experience learning Transcendental Meditation and the many health benefits it brings to one’s body, mind and soul.
