TM

Transcendental Meditation

Transcendental Meditation is a simple technique practised 20 minutes twice a day while sitting comfortably. 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".

Tom Griffith-Jones, an experienced TM teacher, offers a free introductory talk so you can learn more.
