When I first started teaching Transcendental Meditation in the late 70’s, on every course there would be a middle aged man (40’s / 50’s) suffering from work related stress, burnout. Often referred by their GP for conditions like high blood pressure. Teaching TM regularly since then, I can’t help but notice that while I still get people like this on most of my courses, the big difference over the last 20 years is that :
A/ There are as many women as men suffering from stress at work.
B/ The most common age group in this situation is late 20’s early 30’s.
For many Transcendental Meditation is one of the antidotes to the pressures of modern day life.
