"I have spoken to people about TM and said how much more powerful I have found it than mindfulness.  I suppose I would benefit more if I did it twice a day but I am happy with the progress I have made at the moment."

Even when angry, Perry’s words are often delivered with a measured, Zen-like calm, something she ascribes partly to a new maturity (“I left my 20s, I’ve embraced and surrendered to my 30s, and I love it. I wouldn’t go back at all”) and partly to her passion for transcendental meditation. “TM changed my life,” she says. “I studied it five years ago in India during my wedding [to Brand], and it was an incredible thing that I received from that time. Some people get very nervous about the spiritual connotations of things, but TM is very medical and scientific. This [she prods at her mobile] is the new form of sugar. It’s the new dopamine, the new stimulant, and everybody has 20 minutes once a day to turn it off and meditate. When I do it, I can feel the cobwebs lifting and can feel this halo. I think that TM is a beautiful way to find real stillness. You should do it.”

Harvard neuroscientist: Meditation not only reduces stress, here’s how it changes your brain


Some corners of corporate America have long had a culture that wears its long and grueling hours like a badge of honor.

Now a group of executives is trying to change that by opening up about how they each found balance in their own lives and by making wellness a priority at their companies.

"I recently attended the TM course in Newcastle and after having been quite dubious about meditation and how it could help me, I followed my cousins advice and gave it a go, I can honestly say I am thankful I did, even after only five days I can already say it was worth it, I am sleeping so much better, am a lot calmer in myself and it shows in my work. This has opened up a new avenue to me and I now want to spread the word about TM to my family and friends, I think everyone can benefit from TM. Thank you and best wishes to the TM Team."

Julie ~ Washington, Tyne & Wear

"I first completed my TM training with you in 1993.
I am now retired and continue with my daily TM. The only time I had problems with meditation was whilst sailing across the Atlantic
in 2002, with four others in a 40' yacht!"

Rod ~ County Durham

"I'm recommending this to those in Richmond area.. I meditated today.. in hotel room.. Leo was drawing on his tablet .. it was very relaxing and a welcome boost of energy. I highly highly recommend TM. No other mindfulness or meditation has really worked for me. Profound.. meaningful.. just relaxing like a deep tissue massage for the brain."

Michelle ~ Richmond, London

5 days after attending last weekends TM course in York

"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 ~ Huddersfield
