On Tuesday, a team of 12 Thai boys and their soccer coach were rescued after more than two weeks trapped in a flooded cave.
Instead of screaming or crying, the group was found sitting quietly in the dark, meditating.
Their coach, Ekapol Chanthawong spent a decade as a Buddhist monk and was known to be able to meditate for up to an hour at a time.
Reports suggest he helped guide the boys in the practice when they needed it most.
Meditation is known to have a host of health benefits and may be uniquely suited to help people cope with extreme stress.
All of those benefits likely drew Chanthawong to the practice, and helped keep his team alive.
