I have been a TM meditator for several years now and the difference this makes to my life is truly remarkable. My time is fully occupied with clients, family and various community activities which all require a high level of alertness and energy. My daily TM meditation practice gives me these things. I was driven to learn meditation skills by the stressful nature of my life, which was taking a toll on my health, well-being, my relationships with others and my enjoyment of life. Meditation is my relief from a busy world. I enjoy the quiet solitude and the sense of nurturing myself. Others reflect on my calm state and my ability to get so many things done and still keep going. Along the way I have had the privilege to learn some of the ancient wisdom of Maharishi Ayurveda and this is a journey I hope to continue. As well, I have become part of a community of like-minded people with values and beliefs that bring a different perspective to life, reminding me to stop being so busy and enjoy the beauty and richness of life and the world we live in.
