Anna Campbell

"I became a teacher of TM in 1992 and have taught it in Greece, Germany and the U.K. I have a BA in Childhood Practice a Montessori Diploma in Childhood Education from 0 - 6 years and an Office Administration Certificate from Germany. I am currently working in a Montessori school as an Early Years Coordinator and have a lead role in supporting staff and students and ensuring a high standard of practice. I learned TM when I was 6 years and although the benefits were not conscious at first, I started to become more aware of the impact TM had in my life during my early professional experiences and benefit to this day: I gained confidence and self-belief, people have commented that I truly smile and am able to adapt to various situations. I enjoy teaching TM and it is fulfilling to see the benefits that new meditators gain immediately after learning! TM is so simple and practical that it is easily embedded in everyone's daily routines."

What is
Transcendental Meditation?

Transcendental Meditation is a simple technique practised 20 minutes twice a day while sitting comfortably.

It is not a religion, philosophy, or lifestyle. Over ten million people of all ages, cultures and religions have learned TM.

"It is our birth right to be happy, to be alert ..."

Hugh Jackman talks about TM

TM's Scientifically Proven Health Benefits

Hundreds of published research studies on the TM technique have documented its effectiveness on stress and anxiety, brain function, cardiovascular health and more.

What happens when you meditate?

The TM technique allows your mind to easily settle inward, until you experience the most silent and peaceful level of your own awareness. It is completely different as it involves no concentrating or focusing, no trying to "empty the mind".

  • TM is the only meditation practice that has been shown to reduce blood pressure…all other meditation techniques, including Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction are not recommended in clinical practice to lower blood pressure.

  • Perhaps its greatest benefit is that it's relatively quick to learn and easy to master. No waiting weeks or months of practice before you see results"

  • According to both the Australian CSIRO and American Heart Association (AHA), the TM technique is the only meditation technique that has been shown to effectively reduce high blood pressure.

  • A 2009 study found Transcendental Meditation helped alleviate stress in college students, while another found it helped reduce blood pressure, anxiety, depression and anger.
