What is Transcendental Meditation?

Transcendental Meditation (TM) is an easy to learn, accessible and straight forward technique that anybody can fit into their daily routine.

Twenty Minutes Meditation was founded by experienced TM teacher Chris Greathead. Chris has taught Transcendental Meditation for over 40 years to all kinds of people and from every walk of life.

What are the benefits?

Transcendental Meditation allows you to recharge your batteries and dissolve deeply-rooted stress, tension and fatigue. This leaves you feeling calm, clear of mind and with renewed vigour, ready to face the demands and pressures of everyday life.

A growing body of scientific research over the last 50 years shows the huge potential health benefits of Transcendental Meditation.

How and where are the courses taught?

Our courses take place all over the country including North East England, Yorkshire and the North West.

Once you’ve learned Transcendental Meditation you’ll have the tools to meditate for life.

Its simplicity, subtlety and effectiveness make it the perfect antidote to the pressures of modern life.
