Dilma Rousseff

The current president of Brazil, Dilma Rousseff is a fervent Transcendental Meditation practitioner, and she also recommends it to the public. She once said: “I am going jogging to keep my body healthy, and I do Transcendent Meditation to keep my mind healthy.”

Some of the largest Transcendental Meditation teaching projects in the world are happening in Brazil, including an ongoing project to teach the TM technique as part of the curriculum in all 38.000 public schools in the country.
