"My boyfriend, Mike, passed your email address on to me as I would like to learn TM. You taught Mike in Edinburgh a couple of years ago and he now swears by it. I think it’s something I could benefit from greatly and was wondering if you could suggest a course for me in the coming months? I live in London but would in fact be quite keen to do a course outside of London. I notice that there is one coming up in Brighton - are there still spaces on this?"

Ann ~ London

"I learned TM with you back in 1998 and its probably the best thing I ever did.  Its been of so much help with dealing with stress and sleeping properly."

Peter ~ Northumberland

"I'm really enjoying meditating and feel like I'm getting huge benefits from the practice.
Thanks for teaching me the TM technique in Hale 3 years ago. It's helped me enormously, especially creatively on my path as a musician for the past year."
Shane ~ Manchester
"Me and Brian really enjoyed the course and are both meditating every day." 
 
Andy ~ Chorlton, Manchester

"I have been meditating twice a day and I have felt the power of it. I have never know twenty minutes to pass so quickly."

Oliver ~ North Yorks 

"The meditation is moving steadily along and each time it’s different, but in a positive way and I’m careful not to force things, but to let it develop naturally."

Cary ~ Richmond

"I’ve managed to do 20 minutes twice a day, and I definitely feel a benefit. I am feeling calmer generally and sleeping better. I look forward to those two daily sessions!! As someone who was heavily dependent on coffee first thing in the morning, there was one day that I did meditation then noticed well into the morning that I hadn’t had one cup of coffee!!!

Thanks again- this course was one of the best things I’ve gifted to myself!!!"

Mike ~ Edinburgh

"I am meditating once a day and it is helping,"


Jane ~ Richmond, North Yorks

After this months course in Ringwood

"Other methods haven't worked at all - this has been instant."

Nicola ~ Southampton

 "Just wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you very much for this past weekend.  I have been surprised at how quickly I’m able to feel relaxed during the practice and it feels very meaningful to me.  Thank you again!!!! 

John ~ Edinburgh"

  • "Rich and I are still enjoying our daily TMs and all the benefits it brings our lifes! I would like to pay for my cousin to do your course as a present for her 50th birthday.

  • Teri ~ London

"I've found a way to meditate with a busy 8 nearly 9 month old.. if I sit in the playpen with her she can crawl around and play whilst not crying for me to get her out"

Lia ~ London

"I was taught TM back in 2002? ish - even when not practising 'all of the time', it is without doubt my 'go to' for everything."


Linda ~ Newcastle upon Tyne

"The meditation is going well here and I'm now on my 213th consecutive day (mostly with two 20 minute sessions)!" 

Stuart ~ Glasgow

 
"I am so gutted I missed the refresher yesterday - I ended up having to work at the last minute. 
 
The good news is that I've been meditating at least once every day for 99 days! That Insight Timer you recommended keeps my stats and that's the sort of thing I like." 
Beccy ~ Hebdon Bridge, West Yorks

"I meditate sometimes when my mind is busy and it really helps me to chill. Thank you so much for teaching me to meditate!"

Lorna ~ Gateshead

"Energetic - less brain fog.  Happiness.  A magical power!"

Linda ~ Whitley Bay

 "I notice a difference from the moment I meditate.  I can be stressed, or tired, and I go into a meditation and it just all flows off of me..  I'll come out of it refreshed and centred, and that's how I'll feel, and it'll carry through the day."  Ray Dalio.

All the benefits mentioned below have been noticed  by people practising TM (Transcendental Meditation) over the last 50 years.  What is the difference?  TM is easy & enjoyable to practice, because it involves no concentration & no emptying of the mind or getting rid of thoughts - a very important difference which is the reason why you find people still practicing it decades after originally learning.

Beautifully summed up in the following sentence from someone who learned TM last year :

"I really enjoyed the course, after years of struggling with thought control meditation techniques, TM feels like a breath of fresh air - it almost feels like cheating! I'm managing to practice twice a day and I'm getting a lot out of it already."

Zara ~ Leeds

In 2015, 16.1 million Americans reported experiencing major depression during the previous year, often struggling to function while grappling with crippling darkness and despair.

There’s an arsenal of treatments at hand, including talk therapy and antidepressant medications, but what’s depressing in itself is that they don’t work for every patient.

"Thanks  for the wonderful series of TM workshops at the weekend. It was a really inspiring, life-affirming and interesting experience which I hope will be the start of a lifelong journey with TM.

 

My meditations are going great so far.  Overall, I’m starting to feel more energised and clear-headed during the day, even after very active nights with the children!"

Laura ~ York 

 

"Great, finally a meditation I can use"

Andrew ~ Malton, Yorks

 

"I have stuck with it, and have started to find it is improving. I feel it is definitely worth sticking with it. As we discussed on the course, something is definitely happening!"
