TM's scientifically proven health benefits

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".
What people are saying
about Transcendental Meditation
Transcendental meditation is a simple, natural technique... This form of meditation allows your body to settle into a state of profound rest and relaxation and your mind to achieve a state of inner peace, without needing to use concentration or effort.
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"

Liz learned Transcendental Meditation in 1967 and gained so much from the technique that in January 1970 went to Rishikesh, India to train under Maharishi Mahesh Yogi to become a teacher. She has been an accredited teacher of TM for over forty-eight years in Watford, Harrow, and Hampshire since 1973 on returning from working for Maharishi in Europe, at his invitation. She runs the Hampshire TM Centre. She says it is a privilege to teach Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation and a great joy to see the changes that take place in students after they learn. This is so inspiring that she still continues teaching today.
