TM or Mindfulness

Take the first step

Public talks are currently replaced with online webinars.

Register for an intro talk below

The first step is to attend a free introductory talk or "Info Session".
This will be presented by a certified teacher of Transcendental Meditation and generally takes about 1 hour. You will find out:

  • Why TM is so effective for stress and anxiety
  • Why anyone can practise TM
  • What benefits you can realistically expect
  • How it works – the process of transcending
  • How TM differs from other meditations
  • What happens during TM

Following the talk there will be an opportunity to meet privately with the Teacher to discuss personal considerations.

The talk is a prerequisite to joining a course of instruction in TM, but there is no commitment to learn. It is open to everyone even if you only have a mild curiosity! Feel free to bring a friend.

TM for Students

What is Transcendental Meditation (TM)?

TM is practised for 20 mins twice a day, sitting with eyes closed. It is easy and effective. No philosophy is needed, no behavioural changes and it is learnt over 4 sessions of about two hours each. 

During TM the mind effortlessly settles to quieter levels of thinking, tapping our inner reservoir of creativity and intelligence at its silent depths. Simultaneously the body gains profound rest and releases accumulated stress and fatigue. After meditation, the mind is infused with clarity, focus and calm.

Why meditate?

Peer-reviewed studies show that Transcendental Meditation increases energy, focus & self confidence, improves sleep, speeds up reaction times and enhances the immune system.


Awaken Higher Consciousness

University is an opportunity to develop a greater understanding of oneself and the world as well as gain skills for your chosen profession. TM practice allows you to develop intuition, creative vision and self actualisation.
