The effect of constant stress on a deep-lying region of the brain explains the increased risk of heart attack, a study in The Lancet suggests.

"Just to let you know I am keeping up with the TM practice.  Some days I only manage one 20 minute session but I have done it every day since my course in November in York.  I can feel the difference and don’t think I would have got through Christmas and the New Year without it."

"Even with small children it's easy to do. They sit on my lap with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on TV and I insert my earplugs then begin. Hopefully one day they will copy me and do the same but without earplugs or Ninja Turtles. It definitely keeps me calm whilst I daily fend off manic young children dressed as turtles with a plastic sword in each hand."

Can in-school meditation help curb youth violence?

"Morales, the Gage Park teacher, said, "As a teacher, I've seen a transformation of how we, how I, handle conflict in the classroom."

Morales, 57, initially was skeptical of the meditation program, doubting that such a practice would make much difference at a school such as Gage Park. Morales said he thought program and school officials were "naive" to believe the program would resonate with students, and he said he expressed his reservations.

But slowly, Morales began to see the upside with students, and himself."


Just a quick update -

I have managed to find time to meditate every morning and almost every evening & I am so glad I came on your course - I am sleeping so much better now than I have done for many years and I am very grateful to you.  I have been telling fellow fibro sufferers about TM and how much it has helped me ��. I have been trying to find time to update you for ages but because I have been feeling so much better in myself, I have been getting loads of jobs done around the house and making the most of catching up.
Have a really lovely Christmas and a happy New Year and I'll see you in March for the group session

"I came across Transcendental Meditation at a chance business meeting, one of my previous work friends during lunch asked how my benign cluster headaches were since we last met.

For many years now my quality of life has been affected by these re-occurring headaches which could last for up to 3 weeks. During these years I had tried every known type of medication and treatments and none of these had any impact.

Following my colleague's recommendations I attended the TM sessions at Ringwood in 2015 just over 1 year ago.

Since that time I have meditated once every day for 20 minutes and I have not had any of these headaches in this period. This is truly life changing for me and I feel a more relaxed person.

It has certainly helped me greatly, I feel less stressed as a person and the quiet of meditation helps me get off the magic roundabout of life.

Thanks to Transcendental Meditation."

"My TM practice is going really well and I'm really impressed with how much easier and more effective it has been compared to the headspace app that I was using. Thankfully the fatigue is starting to subside too! I feel I have learned a skill for life that will help me cope with day to day stress"

"I learnt to do Transcendental Meditation nearly 30 yeas ago when I was working as a General Practitioner.
As a GP I became aware that to remain in good health the body and the mind needed to be in harmony. It is generally accepted that to remain physically fit you should not put on weight and you should regularly take some exercise. Coping with the mental stresses and strains of life requires a different approach. The discipline of TM whereby you take 20 minutes twice a day out of your routine to meditate allows the physiology of the body (heart rate, blood pressure and breathing) to return to normal levels. This is akin to rebooting a computer when it is overloaded or recharging your smart phone battery. If prior to meditating you do some stretching exercises, as taught by Yoga teachers, you will get a greater beneficial effect from the meditation.
I believe that everyone should take a responsible attitude towards maintaining good health and meditating goes a long way to achieving this goal.
I have found TM a great help and support. The ability to meditate helps me to cope with the changes that are occurring in my twilight years."

David ~ Kent

Just to clarify, this article about Transcendental Meditation refers to the other organisation that teaches TM, the Maharishi Foundation.


"I am already feeling benefits of tm and have managed to meditate twice a day most days"

Nicola ~ Glasgow

"So glad I have TM in my life now!!!"  Val ~ Edinburgh.

"I have to admit to being slightly sceptical as to whether TM would work for me, would I be able to get it, would I stick with it, would it be too difficult to fit around other commitments. I was pleasantly surprised by how straightforward the technique is.  I enjoy the fact that TM is easy to practice and is easy to fit in around a busy family life. I have gained a number of benefits, since learning TM, including generally feeling calmer and being able to cope better with stressful situations. I have been meditating for the last 5 years and I still enjoy it greatly."

John ~ York

"It is about 6ish years now since we learned TM with you. It has been life changing and we don't go a date without meditating. I recommend TM all the time"

Sarah ~ Edinburgh

"I'm pleased to say that I have kept up the meditation and am feeling the benefit from it. I always do it once a day and, sometimes, twice.

It has certainly reduced my stress level and I feel better balanced in terms of my outlook on life. So, all good overall. Why didn't I discover it before??"
