What people are saying
“I am eternally grateful for what Transcendental Meditation has brought to my life and I know deep down that I would never stand where I stand today without this incredible knowledge and the ability to connect with something higher.”
Sylvia Larrass, Ottawa
“For me, the simple secret to having a fulfilling day is to be able to set out each morning feeling settled, dynamic, and happy. Once this condition is established, everything naturally flows and gets done without effort – the day unfolds like a string of little miracles. This is the benefit I receive daily from Transcendental Meditation practice.”
Joanne Hollander, Montreal
