Regarding the title, "without a doubt & many people find Transcendental Meditation is the solution."


We are the distracted generations, wasting hours a day checking irrelevant emails and intrusive social media accounts.

And this "always on" culture - exacerbated by the smartphone - is actually making us more stressed and less productive, according to some reports.

"Something like 40% of people wake up, and the first thing they do is check their email," says Professor Sir Cary Cooper of Manchester Business School, who has studied e-mail and workplace stress.

"For another 40%, it's the last thing they do at night."


"I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you for the course I was on in March with you. It really was excellent.

I am still practising TM every day (most days are twice for 20 mins) and I definitely notice the difference in myself and how I cope with life!
The anxiety breathing problems that I have had are slowly working their way out of my system.  I was being a bit impatient at first and hoping that they would go away almost immediately after doing the course but now I can see it takes time. Slowly and surely I'm dealing with it in a much more positive way.
The thing that I notice the most is in how I deal with other people/situations which may have 'wound me up' in the past....I seem to have lost that angry knot that was inside me. I also have more energy."

"I feel it's just what I needed" ~ Peter, Altrincham

"Just wanted to let you know that I practice TM every morning without fail before I get out of bed. I try my best to get a PM session in (we have a faith room here at Solent Uni) which is quite different from the AM session in that I really seem to zone out, which is fab. I feel like I'm in an aircraft which is descending to land - that's the only way I can describe it. I have become a walking talking advertising campaign for the Meditation Trust and telling everyone how brilliant it is. We have had a family bereavement recently and I coped really well. My partner says they have seen a real change in me for the better as I am much calmer and thoughtful and generally really chilled out.

Thank you for teaching me TM. It has changed my world for the better."

Elizabeth ~ Chester

"I would like to thank you very much for an inspiring, knowledgeable, fascinating and clearly explained course on how to practice TM and all the benefits that can be had from it.  I am already feeling less 'wound up' by various things & am determined to keep it up every day (have managed so far since I saw you!) and I already feel this is in no way a chore as I find myself looking forward to that time alone and just with my thoughts,or not, as the case may be."

Gillian ~ Edinburgh


"I thoroughly enjoyed the weekend - thanks for the great instruction! It's been interesting to make the time to meditate since then - strategically feeding the cat so it doesn't interrupt or to *not* put the washing machine on coz the spin cycle is so bloody loud :) The car park meditation also works a treat."
Shauna ~ Dunfirmline.
