A complete Introduction to Transcendental Meditation
One of the unique features of TM is that personal instruction is delivered by highly qualified certified teachers on a one-to-one basis. This is one of the reasons for TM's great success. Revised Government guidelines permit us to restart the delivery of training providing it is performed online where possible. At the same time, they allow for limited face-to-face sessions where necessary.
There are four key sessions of about 90 minutes each on four consecutive days for learning Transcendental Meditation. The initial session is always held individually, face to face and in person, the follow-up sessions are with the support of the new TM digital course, which runs on iOS and Android mobile phones, together with Zoom video-conferencing. This provides a comprehensive and interactive experience and is supported by daily group meditation and personal check-ins with your teacher. Before coming for personal instruction your teacher will provide you with guidence as to how we are meeting Government, Health and Safety Executive and WHO guideline. We are confident that learning Transcendental Meditation will be a safe, enjoyable and fulfilling experience.
Transcendental Meditation is a simple, natural, effortless technique practised 20 minutes twice a day while sitting comfortably.
It enables mind and body to access a special quality of rest. Over six million people of all ages, cultures and religions have learnt TM. Anyone can learn!
The TM technique allows your mind to easily settle inward, until you experience the most silent and peaceful level of your own awareness. It differs completely from other meditations as it does not involve concentrating, or trying to empty the mind or be in the present - it is completely natural.
Sir Paul McCartney
Stress and anxiety are harmful to health, happiness, creativity and productivity. Hundreds of published research studies on TM verify its effectiveness for reducing stress, improving focus and clarity of mind, strengthening immunity and much more.
Imagine trying to learn a natural golf swing or the violin. You know how valuable it is for a good teacher to show you the proper technique.
The TM technique is easy to learn, but requires personalized interactive guidance. For this reason, it's taught only through one-on-one instruction by a certified TM teacher.
There is no other way to learn the authentic TM technique — and there is no evidence that anything else provides the full range of benefits documented in the published research on the TM technique.
The TM technique allows your mind to easily settle inward, through quieter levels of thought, until you experience the most silent and peaceful level of your own awareness — pure consciousness.
No problem at all. Unlike other forms of meditation, TM practice involves no concentration, no control of the mind, no contemplation, no monitoring of thoughts. It is completely effortless.
The TM technique's effectiveness is the same whether you believe it will work or are completely sceptical. That's because it automatically and effortlessly allows your active thinking mind to settle down to a state of deep inner calm.
