TM Suffolk is a vibrant Centre for Transcendental Meditation currently with four teachers of TM working here. From left to right in the picture: Felicity Kaplan, Annie Renwick and John Renwick.

We are delighted that John Darby has also just joined the team.


Book in for one of our informal free introductory talks about the benefits of Transcendental Meditation.

The Centre offers the opportunity to learn the practice either residentially or non-residentially, and to enjoy a wide range of meditators' meetings and residential courses and TM Retreats for those already practising TM. 

Learning TM in residence:
Come and enjoy learning Transcendental Meditation in residence either during the week or over a long weekend. Our venue is the new Maharishi Peace Palace, the new 30 bedroom residential TM Facility in Rendlesham.
When learning TM at the Suffolk Centre in residence then the complementary six-month follow–up programme can be completed at Rendlesham or at another Centre elsewhere in Britain.

Learning Transcendental Meditation in this way also offers the opportunity to take a break in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.We are just over 10 minutes drive to Snape Maltings where the acclaimed international Aldeburgh Music Festival and Proms are held every year, close to the charming seaside towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold and the village of Orford plus the delightful market town of Woodbridge. Rendlesham Forest is just on our doorstep as are the 6th century archaeological treasures at nearby Sutton Hoo- so there is much to offer visitors to our Centre as well as the chance to learn Transcendental Meditation or once you are practising TM you can also enjoy a quiet TM Retreat here in the heart of Suffolk.

For those already practising Transcendental Meditation

Venue: the Maharishi Peace Palace, Gardenia Close, Rendlesham Suffolk IP12 2GX.

TM RETREATS: We have a full programme of residential courses throughout the year. This is a major asset of TM Suffolk to be enjoyed by all those who practice TM from around the country and abroad as we have International Course venue status within the worldwide TM organisation.

Claire Whittenbury:

"Three months ago I learned TM and it was easy. At the Suffolk TM centre I followed the tried and tested four day initial course and have continued to return for refresher sessions that take me deeper into my meditation.

In this short time I can honestly say that my life has changed. My creativity has resurfaced, my husband says I'm less angry and, contrary to my fears, my blood pressure has not gone down. I had heard that TM is effective in normalising blood pressure, and I wrongly assumed this meant lowering it - if mine was any lower I'd be comatose, so that was a worry. I experimented with using a blood pressure monitor before and after meditating and the test showed that it raised slightly, making it closer to 'normal', but my heart rate slowed."
