Magdalena has been practicing Transcendental Meditation since 1999 and has been a full-time TM teacher for several years. Over the years Magdalena has found that TM helped her so much, in so many ways, that she really wanted to share this technique with everyone.

Courses of Instruction
Once you have attended an introductory talk, you can book into one of our courses to learn TM. These are held weekly at the Victoria Centre and at other Centres throughout London. Courses run from Saturday - Tuesday (other times on request). The course consists of a one and a half hour session each day for four consecutive days. A flexible follow up programme is available afterwards to support you in your practice.
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.
