Local teacher - Linda Barlow
I learnt Transcendental Meditation in 1972, mainly out of curiosity, but the experience was so enjoyable and enriching I have continued meditating – and it just seems to get better. It is something to look forward to – and the feeling that remains with you after a meditation. Certainly it has helped with all the challenges of life, and the hard work involved with a career and family life. I became a teacher in 1976, and teaching too has become more and more fulfilling. I was Programmes Manager for Oxford University Business Summer School, but later in life changed to develop my work as a psychotherapist. I have an MA in the Psychology of Therapy and Counselling, and have trained in many aspects of this work to become UKCP registered. Locally I work in two GP surgeries, as well as receiving referrals from various Occupational Health organisations. I have also worked for 15 years in the clinical team for an employee assistance provider, a leading global provider of healthcare.
I feel fortunate to have learnt TM when I did, it has been of such benefit to my life. The purity of the tradition has been maintained by the teachers over time, and the fact that it is taught through a well-structured course enables people to feel they are secure in the experience and understanding of TM.
