DATE: Friday 12th to Sunday 14th April, 2019, Rydal Hall (nr Ambleside) Cumbria

Idyllic spot in the heart of the Lakes set in beautiful grounds, just outside the lovely town of Ambleside, but a peaceful haven to enjoy a weekend of meditation.
The all inclusive fee per person is : £229 for a single en-suite room, £219 for a shared en-suite room & £210 for a non en-suite room.

Everyone needs a break. The emphasis of these weekends is deep rest & revitalisation, enabling you to gain a clearer experience & understanding of Twenty Minutes Meditation. They are open to anyone who has learnt T.M. Meditation, regardless of whether you are practising regularly or not. Many people use the weekend to re-establish a meditation routine.

Starting Friday evening and finishing Sunday teatime the weekend includes extra meditation (in the group or separate as you prefer) with optional simple yoga postures and breathing exercises plus group meetings and discussion. The whole thing is very informal and there is plenty of time to enjoy the company of meditator’s from across the country over delicious meals (vegetarian options available) and leisurely walks.

Deep Relaxation & Revitalisation
Transcendental Meditation is a technique for deep relaxation and revitalisation. It allows your mind and body to gain a unique state of very deep rest.

Dissolves Deep-Rooted Stress & Fatigue
This allows you to recharge your ‘batteries’ and dissolve deeply-rooted stress, tension and fatigue from the whole system. This in turn, leaves you feeling calm, convivial, clear in mind, and yet with renewed vigour – ready to face the demands and pressures of every day life. Stress negatively effects every aspect of life.

Easy to learn, enjoyable to practice. No ability required
TM is easy to learn and practice. Anyone can do it. You don’t have to be able to concentrate. You don’t even have to be able to relax. You just practice for 20 minutes twice a day sitting comfortably with the eyes closed.

No do’s and don’t – no beliefs
TM is practical and enjoyable. It is not a religion, philosophy or way of life. No beliefs are involved at all.
You don’t even have to believe that it works! Nor do you have to give anything up.

Dear Sir, Madam,

I took up TM in Antwerp last Saturday. I can’t believe the effects I’ve already experienced during this less than a week of meditation. I’m so enthusiastic that I’ve told my family and two of my friends whom I think could also be interested. Much as they are attracted by the idea of TM, and its potential benefits, they all balk at the expense, which in the Antwerp branch of the Mahadishi Foundation, where I followed my course, is €900. I coincidentally discovered your website when looking up more information on TM, so I can share it with my family and friends. My question is do you know of any fellow TM associations that offer decent TM courses at a more affordable price than the Mahadishi Foundation?
Thank you in advance for your reply.
