Abstract

Stress is a psychologically depressed condition caused by unpleasant physical or psychological experiences. Prolonged stress adversely affect the physical, intellectual, social, and spiritual conditions of the body, with the ability to threaten its physiological balance. Stress management is an effort to control and reduce tension that arises along with situations that are difficult to be overcome, therefore emotional and physical changes occur. One of the stress management efforts is Transcedental Meditation (TM) which was introduced by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. In carrying out these community service activities, members of the police at the Singaraja State Police School (SPN), Bali and in collaboration with the Maharishi Global Raam Raj Foundation related to the initiation of the Transcedental Meditation program which is subsequently called "Mental Healthy Movement Through the Transcedental Meditation Program" are the main target. This activity is carried out at the State Police School, Buleleng, Bali. The results shows that the stress management program on police officers at the SPN reduces the stress experienced by participants. Therefore, it was concluded that the Transcendental meditation program reduces the stress levels possessed by police officers in accordance with the techniques and stages of training conducted by the Warmadewa University Service Team.
