Will Treend teaches Transcendental Meditation in the Isle of Wight, Portsmouth and surrounding areas. He first learnt TM in 1976. At the time he was the owner of a Hair Salon and soon enjoyed the benefits of TM, enjoying more creativity and acquiring 3 more Salons effortlessly. Simultaneously he was drawn to retraining himself using the Vidal Sassoon Academies in London (Vidal was also a TM practitioner ) and aspiring to become the No1 creative Hair Stylist in Hampshire. Will soon realised however that there was a bigger picture to creativity and the desire to share the gift of TM outweighed the ego driven drive for more fame, so he went deeper into the advanced programmes of TM necessary to becoming a TM Teacher. In 1993 he became a fully qualified Teacher of Transcendental Meditation for the Portsmouth area and has since taught the technique all over the world. The Isle of Wight represents a beautiful setting to learn TM, attracting people who want to combine learning TM with a weekend break in pure silent countryside with the ocean never far away - so Bliss inside and outside.
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".
