I learned Transcendental Meditation more than 35 years ago and I have enjoyed the benefits ever since. Along with raising a family in Leicester, I have also enjoyed two careers, first in Education and then more recently in Public Health, as a specialist in prevention, education and training around substance misuse.
I have found Transcendental Meditation to be an essential tool to build my resilience and not just ‘manage' the stress, but actually get rid of it on a daily basis, allowing me to enjoy the challenges of work and also balance this with the rest of my life with friends and family.
Susan Lincoln has been a teacher of Transcendental Meditation since 1976, working in Kent, Sussex, and Leicestershire. She has held residential courses specialising in families and the Maharishi Vedic Approach to Health Ayurveda.
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.
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".

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.
