What does a local university student have in common with Jerry Seinfeld, Howard Stern and David Lynch? The comedian, shock jock radio personality and filmmaker all practise transcendental meditation, which Carleton University student Espoir Manirambona began practising daily in June.

“I just really enjoy the inner silence that it brings,” Manirambona said.

“I've been going through a pretty busy time at school and it feels like I can just handle the stress a lot better.”
