"Meditation helps with creativity ... it's almost like TM helps creatively on a level that I can't describe ... but it's tapping into something so deep that when I reap the rewards, I don't even know I'm reaping them".

Eva Mendes on TM

Or if you need to ask a question? Please fill out the enquiry form below.

The first step is to attend a free introductory talk or "Info Session".
This will be presented by a certified teacher of Transcendental Meditation and generally takes about 1 hour. You will find out:

  • Why TM is so effective for stress and anxiety
  • Why anyone can practise TM
  • What benefits you can realistically expect
  • How it works – the process of transcending
  • How TM differs from other meditations
  • What happens during TM

Following the talk there will be an opportunity to meet privately with the Teacher to discuss personal considerations.

The talk is a prerequisite to joining a course of instruction in TM, but there is no commitment to learn. It is open to everyone even if you only have a mild curiosity! Feel free to bring a friend.
