Transcendental Meditation Weekend 21/22/23 March 2015

Transcendental Meditation (TM) workshop weekend 21/22/23 March 2015meditating

Transcendental Meditation was brought from India to the West in 1959 by the revolutionary meditation teacher Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.   Although it may sound like a complex technique to learn, TM is actually simple, natural and effortless to practice.  It’s also very easy and enjoyable to learn.  You don’t need to be in the mood for TM in order to meditate and feel its benefits.  You don’t need to be experienced in other meditation techniques or spiritual practices, no concentration or visualisation is necessary, you don’t need to sit in a yoga posture to meditate, you don’t even need to be in a silent place; all you need is somewhere to sit comfortably for 15-20 minutes – even a train, bus, plane, park bench – and you can enjoy TM!

Learned by more than 6 million people worldwide, 650 scientific research studies on TM show benefits such as improved sleep, improved memory, concentration and energy, reduced anxiety and depression, clearer thinking and reduced use of alcohol and tobacco.It’s taught in 4 sessions over a weekend and the first course at CHHC begins on Saturday 21st March.  The Saturday session is a one-to-one personal instruction which lasts for about and hour. You’ll be shown how to meditate and have the opportunity to experience TM straight away.  Then you’re asked to meditate at home and come back on Sunday 22nd March for two group sessions: the first from 10am-12pm and the second from 4pm-6:30pm.  In these sessions you’ll learn more about how the technique works and also discover how to know if you’re meditating correctly.  We then have a follow-up session on Monday 23rd March from 7-9pm.  This is a refresher session and an opportunity to share your experiences and learn more about how to get the most out of TM.  There are also group meditations at these sessions which are hugely enjoyable.

The course is offered by The Meditation Trust charity whose group of fully qualified, highly experienced and enthusiastic teachers offer expert instruction in this simple, effortless meditation.  Our teacher for the Cheltenham area learned TM 29 years ago, qualified as a teacher 23 years ago and has individually taught 1000 people this remarkable meditation technique.

Once you’ve completed these sessions you’ll have a valuable skill that lasts for life!
