It is an effortless technique which you can do in a comfortable chair – you don’t have to be able to be an expert at yoga!
No change in lifestyle is necessary; you just add 20 minutes of profound relaxation of mind and body to your routine.
The first step is to come to an introductory talk
Introductory talks are free of charge, last about an hour and involve no commitment to learn. They can take place at our centre in the City or at your home or office.
The presentation covers:
- What TM is and how it works
- What you can expect to get out of the practice
- Scientific research
- Where TM comes from
- How it differs from other kinds of meditation and relaxation
You learn TM in 4 sessions, which must be on consecutive days and last about 1½ hours. By the end of the course you will be meditating on your own at home.
After the initial 4 sessions, we meet after a week, after another 2 weeks, after a month and again after another month.
These meetings ensure you are meditating correctly and are enjoying the benefits.
The frequency of our sessions reduces as you become confident and comfortable with the technique. However, if you need any more support during these three months, you can have as much as you need.
This is all included in the course fee.
The course fee also includes our optional monthly meditators’ meetings for 6 months after you have learned (after that there is a nominal charge).
So there is quite a lot of encouragement and support to get you going when you learn TM.
After the course
TM will just be an enjoyable part of your daily routine. However, there is a range of meditators’ meetings, weekend courses and advanced courses for those who wish to participate
