A choice of a location or online introductory talk

Main points of the info session

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.

What is
Transcendental Meditation?

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.

"It is our birth right to be happy, to be alert..."

Hugh Jackman talks about TM

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".

What people are saying about Transcendental Meditation


"TM blew everything away"

Jerry Seinfeld:

"It's like a charger for your mind and body"

Ray Dalio & Martin Scorcese

"It brought me a clarity"
"That 20 mins is a god send"

Ellen DeGeneres:

"It's the only time I have stillness...It is a beautiful experience"

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.


3. Teaching method:
  • Unlike other meditation methods, TM is taught one-on-one by instructors
  • TM teachers are certified and world experts in the field of TM
  • Delivery of training is personalised and individual

My meditation is amazing, one of – if not the – best discovery of my year 2018. I am happy with the results and it seems I am letting go of things from the past.
