"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."

"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.
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."

"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."

"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??"
