What We Offer
Transcendental Meditation Technique
The Transcendental Meditation technique is a highly effective tool for overcoming stress. The technique is practised for twenty minutes twice daily while sitting comfortably with eyes closed. During meditation, the mind settles to quieter levels of thought and even beyond thought to a natural state of inner silence. As the mind effortlessly settles down to quieter levels of thought, the body correspondingly settles down to a state of deep physical rest. This state of inner peace and calm produces profound physical relaxation, and yet the mind remains restfully alert.
Published research shows that during this experience, the brain functions with significantly greater coherence as the metabolism settles down. This deep level of mental and physiological rest dissolves stress and revitalizes the individual. The result is clearer thinking, increased physical energy and vitality, improved academic and work performance and strengthened relationships with others, including co-workers and supervisors.
