The home of TM Suffolk
The Maharishi Peace Palace and surrounding buildings are designed and constructed according to the principles of the most ancient system of Vedic architecture, Sthapatya Veda – ‘Maharishi Vastu' - realised in a modern context. It is a garden village development with 60 dwellings designed to the same principles - and more planned.
There is also a Maharishi Ayurveda Centre next to the main building.

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.
"Doing TM as a family results in a more harmonious and blissful home life. We have also noticed that all of us have become more adaptable and resilient in dealing with life's daily challenges. Practicing TM has definitely expanded our ability to be kinder, understanding and more patient with one another as well as to the people we interact with on a daily basis ..."

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".
How is Transcendental Meditation different
from other meditations?
Compared to other meditations TM is different in two ways.
1. Absolutely effortless
- No concentrating
- No control of the mind
- No mindfulness (monitoring of thoughts)
- No trying to "empty the mind"
- Anyone can do it, even children with ADHD
2. Proven effective
TM has been proven effective for stress and anxiety, clarity of mind, and more.
Two ways to learn Transcendental Meditation with TM Suffolk now:
As always, whether you complete your course fully in-person or partially at home, all our courses offer a full 6-month follow-up programme of individualised support and guidance.
1. In person four-day course on consecutive days in an adjacent building until the Peace Palace re-opens. Onsite self-contained B&B adjacent to the Peace Palace is usually available for those travelling from a distance – please ask. Bring your own transport and you can also enjoy this beautiful area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB). These courses are offered regularly every month.
2. We also offer the four-day course with in-person instruction on the first day followed by home-learning with the aid of video meetings and a digital course. Your personal TM Teacher checks in with you for a brief meeting each day on Zoom without requiring you to be in-person for all four instructional sessions of the course. This can start any time which is convenient and has been proving very popular.
In 2021 we hope to recommence in-house courses in the Peace Palace for local residents and those wishing to learn TM in a beautiful residential setting; provisional enquiries can be taken but bookings cannot yet be guaranteed. Here is some information about what we will be offering once the building re-opens.
When the building re-opens you would book your personal instruction dates with TM Suffolk first and then we will put you in touch with the Peace Palace booking team to arrange your accommodation directly once the course is booked with us.
"I was amazed by the Peace Palace … the feeling of space was brilliant … the whole effect was one of under-stated elegance. The food was beautifully served and the staff were so helpful."
What people are saying
about Transcendental Meditation
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.
