Courses of Instruction

Transcendental Meditation classes are offered by appointment in seven steps, at times convenient to you. The first 3 Steps can be taken in one session (Introductory lecture; Preparatory lecture; Personal interview).

Step 4 – Personal instruction in Transcendental Meditation and steps 5, 6 and 7 must be taken over 4 consecutive days for about 1.5 hrs each session. The courses often start on a Saturday, but Linda also teaches daytime courses if needed. We also provide a six-month follow up programme of regular checking and knowledge meetings, to ensure the best start and maximum benefits over time.

An effortless technique

Personal experience on day of learning TM:

"Without knowing what to expect, I began to drift down into deeper and deeper levels of relaxation, as if I were sinking into my chair. Then for some time, perhaps a minute or a few minutes, I experienced a silent, inner state of no thoughts, just pure awareness and nothing else; then again I became aware of my surroundings. It left me with a deep sense of ease, inner renewal and happiness."
