Course dates

I have been practising yoga for over 24 years and been teaching for 16. I have studied many different systems of meditation during this time but felt unable to commit to a regular practice as on a personal level I felt something was missing. I had been interested in T.M but found the cost prohibitive. That was until I discovered Chris Greathead - Transcendental Meditation Independant (UK). I found Chris a relaxed and supportive teacher, always on hand to offer advice if needed. I immediately took the plunge and ten years on have never looked back. As soon as I started T.M, I found what had been previously missing for me in other styles. I loved the simplicity and ease of it. My life (like many) is extremely busy but I always ensure I meditate at least once a day for 20 minutes. The benefits are many. I sleep better, I have more energy, I feel calmer and happier and much better equipped to deal with stress. I would recommend learning T.M to anyone (and indeed do).

Sharon, Yoga teacher, Southampton, Hants

My wife and I attended a Transcendental Meditation course about 9 years ago now and we have found this to be totally life changing, we feel empowered to deal with stress and pressure, by meditating daily we have an opportunity to truly unwind and feel deeply peaceful and re-energized. This has improved our lives in so many ways, we have recommended TM and Chris Greathead to many of our friends and will continue to practice it and reap the rewards of giving our selves some time in this ever increasingly demanding and fast paced world.

Richard, Businessman, Andover, Hants

I studied meditation under Chris. He's a fab teacher - very patient, considerate, and like all good teachers, allows his students to arrive at the learning point at their own pace, and in their own way. Meditation is one of those life skills that you're continually learning - your experiences and perceptions of it change, and what you get from Chris is support through that process, as much or as little as you like. Highly recommended.
