Transcendental Meditation is completely different to any other meditation that I have tried. I think the most noticeable difference is the technique - which is that of absolute ease, whereas all others that I have tried have been very difficult to do. Also the tangible changes that I have noticed in everyday life are rather profound. As you can imagine being unable to work for a year and a half doesn't do wonders for your confidence, combined with the fact that it is difficult to think and hold a conversation...however since learning TM I am completely happy in myself which is something I don't think I've ever been able to say before!
The trust are doing so much amazing work in the community too. The money that I raise will go towards a research project looking at how TM can help soldiers & others with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). Fantastic results are being found with TM, unlike traditional therapies such as counselling where people have to talk about traumatic experiences to help them recover, with meditation they are able to get better without having to talk about difficult times that they have been through.
The Meditation Trust was established as a registered charity in 2000 with a mission to make Transcendental Meditation (‘TM’) accessible and affordable for all. With a fee structure up to 50% lower than other UK courses, and up to 80% lower than European prices, this allows anyone with a desire for TM’s huge range of potential benefits, indicated by scientific research, access to the authentic, ancient teachings. The addition of a bursary fund, established by our experienced meditators to help those who are not able to afford our lowest course fees, has increased this availability.
Highly experienced, professional teachers, trained as directed by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, offer expert guidance in this simple, effortless meditation which brings wide-ranging, integrative results more quickly and profoundly than concentration, visualisation or mindfulness. Individual instruction followed by three group sessions, over three or four consecutive days, leaves you with a valuable skill. Further guidance, FREE FOR LIFE, ensures complete satisfaction, because Transcendental Meditation automatically works for everyone, regardless of age, background, belief or ability.
Since its foundation in 2000, the Trust has experienced overwhelming demand for Transcendental Meditation courses. As our founder has been joined by other teachers, most of whom had worked for Maharishi’s organisation for decades, the Trust has taught thousands to meditate, and is now turning its attention increasingly to providing access for society’s disadvantaged groups to this highly therapeutic knowledge.
