It was around the beginning of September when I frantically fired off an email to Chris Greathead – (an apt name I think you’ll agree for a meditation teacher) to see if he had any space left on his annual Transcendental Meditation retreat.


“I was taught TM back in 2002? ish – even when not practising ‘all of the time’, it is without doubt my ‘go to’ for everything.”

Linda ~ Newcastle upon Tyne

“The meditation is going well here and I’m now on my 213th consecutive day (mostly with two x 20 minute sessions)!”

Stuart ~ Glasgow

“I am so gutted I missed the refresher yesterday – I ended up having to work at the last minute.

The good news is that I’ve been meditating at least once every day for 99 days! That Insight Timer you recommended keeps my stats and that’s the sort of thing I like.”
Beccy ~ Hebdon Bridge, West Yorks

“I meditate sometimes when my mind is busy and it really helps me to chill. Thank you so much for teaching me to meditate!”

Mari ~ Osaka, Japan

“Great course and feel calmer”

Steve ~ Stockport, Manchester


Alexa ~ Manchester

“Very good”

Joanna ~ Manchester

“Really good, calmer and more energy”

Jack ~ Manchester

“Energy, clarity, calmness, efficiency + strong explanations & foundations”

Ray ~ Newcastle upon Tyne

“Impressed with results so far”

Jeff ~ Wylam

“Very good, feeling benefits healthwise”

Danielle ~ South Shields

“Excellent.  It feels accessible to me and simple – enjoyable.”

Lorna ~ Gateshead

“Energetic – less brain fog.  Happiness.  A magical power!”

Linda ~ Whitley Bay

“Thanks  for the wonderful series of TM workshops at the weekend. It was a really inspiring, life-affirming and interesting experience which I hope will be the start of a lifelong journey with TM.

My meditations are going great so far.  Overall, I’m starting to feel more energised and clear-headed during the day, even after very active nights with the children!”

Laura ~ York

“Great, finally a meditation I can use”

Andrew ~ Malton, Yorks

“I have stuck with it, and have started to find it is improving. I feel it is definitely worth sticking with it. As we discussed on the course, something is definitely happening!”

Helen ~ York

“I have been enjoying the meditations, I am still working my way to doing it twice a day.”
