About Twenty Minutes Meditation

Twenty Minutes Meditation was founded by Chris Greathead. Chris is a highly skilled professional teacher with over 40 years experience who has successfully helped thousands of people improve their lives through meditation.

Chris initially learned meditation in 1971, having been taught the Transcendental Meditation technique. After establishing meditation as a once a day routine Chris began to notice a greater sense of calm and reduced anxiety. Little by little it became clear that there was an undeniable connection between meditation and everyday quality of life.

Intrigued, Chris decided to find out more and after studying with Maharishi’s TM organisation in Switzerland, France and India qualified as a TM teacher in 1977.

Now based in the North East of England, since 1995 Twenty Minutes Meditation teach independent courses both for the general public and with staff from all of the major private and public-sector organisations and businesses in the North East.

“In my experience anyone can benefit from this meditation, regardless of age or background, the ability to seriously relax mentally and physically on a daily basis is not a luxury, but a necessity. I aim to teach Twenty-Minute Meditation (TM) in a relevant down-to-earth way, the same technique, but with a refreshing contemporary approach” Chris Greathead

The benefits are many. I sleep better, I have more energy, I feel calmer and happier and much better equipped to deal with stress.

(Meditation) has helped me find an inner calmness when things have been at their most challenging: an inner calmness that allows me to think more clearly and make decisions.
