More energy, less stress, clearer thinking.
Enhance your creativity with Transcendental Meditation.
Transcendental Meditation is a simple, transformative technique that is practised for about 20 minutes twice a day whilst sitting comfortably with eyes closed. It enables the body to naturally dissolve stress, strain and fatigue, allowing you to enjoy life more.
TM is easy to learn and starts working from the very first day. To find out how you can start practising and enjoying the many benefits, click here to attend a 1 hour info session.
Transcendental Meditation allows the nervous system to access a special quality of rest different from ordinary rest and relaxation - and in some ways deeper than sleep. It allows the brain to break out of the cycle of stress. The frontal lobes of the brain are then able to coordinate mind and emotions, and you see life in perspective once again.
Transcendental Meditation has been proven to benefit mental, physical and emotional wellbeing. Since 1974, over 50 years of published research has been conducted. See a summary here: 600 studies published to date.
Remove the root cause of anxiety naturally
Regular practice of Transcendental Meditation gives a calmer, more peaceful state of mind and body.
[Journal of Clinical Psychology, 1989; 45: 957-974]
Greater resilience to stress
When your inner resources cannot meet the demands of daily life, you get stressed. TM increases tolerance and the ability to recover from stressful situations.
[Hormones and Behaviour, 1978 10:54-60]
Improve your clarity of mind & creativity
TM is one of the most effective methods for time management. An orderly mind prioritises and does not suffer from time pressure, naturally enhancing creativity.
Meditate for a healthier heart
Extensive scientific research has shown distinct benefits for cardiovascular health, including reduced high blood pressure and reduced risk of stroke.

What people are saying about TM
Meditation lowers blood pressure
"Transcendental meditation may be one way to keep the heart healthy, say researchers who have discovered how it keeps blood pressure low."
Does TM work?
"I find it profoundly relaxing. It gives me a chance to order my thoughts ... I am much less tired than I was a month ago. My sleep is deep and unbroken."
Meditate to sharpen your assertive edge
"It's unlikely aggressive Type-A personalities will be de-fanged and turned into a Type-B, by meditating. But they might feel less tense."
TM for PTSD
Time Magazine: TM for PTSD "a peer-reviewed study finds that TM may have helped to alleviate symptoms of PTSD and improve quality of life in veterans of OEF/OIF with combat-related PTSD."
Imagine learning a golf swing or the violin. You know how valuable it is for a good teacher to show you the proper technique.
Transcendental Meditation is easy to learn, but requires personalised interactive guidance. For this reason, it's taught only through one-on-one instruction by a certified TM teacher.
There is no other way to learn the authentic TM technique — and there is no evidence that anything else provides the full range of benefits documented in the published research on TM.
Transcendental Meditation allows your mind to easily settle down, through quieter levels of thought, until you experience the most silent and peaceful level of your own awareness — pure consciousness.
No problem at all. Unlike other forms of meditation, TM involves no concentration, no control of the mind, no contemplation, no monitoring of thoughts. It is completely effortless.
The effectiveness of Transcendental Meditation is the same whether you believe it will work or are completely sceptical. That's because it automatically and effortlessly allows your active thinking mind to settle down to a state of deep inner calm.
