What is TM?

Transcendental Meditation™ is a natural and effortless mental technique to allow the mind to settle down and the body to get deep rest.  It is simple to learn and enjoyable to do.  It can be practised in your own home: just 20 minutes twice a day while sitting comfortably in a chair.  It can even be done on public transport.  It does not require a change in lifestyle.
What happens when you meditate?

The active thinking mind settles down and within minutes the body gains a state of profound rest and relaxation.  This unique state of ‘restful alertness’ develops the total brain and allows your body’s natural healing mechanisms to dissolve stress and tension.

What are the benefits?

There are over 600 scientific research studies carried out on TM which demonstrate:
·      Reduced stress and anxiety
