The Transcendental Meditation Manchester course structure
Personal, one-to-one instruction where you learn how to meditate, allow one and a half hours. This is followed by 3 group meetings where the technique is fine tuned and you get a clearer & more practical understanding of TM which equips you to meditate on a regular basis in everyday life. The group meetings are very informal, enjoyable & you don’t have to speak unless you want too. The number of participants vary with the max being about 12.

Group sessions, 10.30am – 1.00pm and 6.30 – 8.30pm
Group session, 7.00 – 9.00pm

Free support & guidance
Transcendental Meditation (TM) is very much a technique you can practice on your own and use to enrich everyday life, correctly practised it should be an easy, effortless & enjoyable experience. Most people like to have the option of keeping in touch, consequently we offer ongoing, regular follow up refresher sessions which are open to anyone who has ever learned TM.

The Manchester Transcendental Meditation Teacher
Chris Greathead has been teaching TM courses for over 30 years. He first learnt TM in 1971 & spent many years studying with Maharishi’s TM organisation in Switzerland, France, India & the UK qualifying as a TM teacher in 1977. Based in Newcastle upon Tyne since 1985 he has taught TM fulltime across the UK & worked with staff from most of the major private & public sector organisations & business’s in the north east.

In 1995 he left the international TM organisation after fundamentally disagreeing with the direction they were taking & the huge increase in the fee to learn TM.

He has since continued teaching TM as an independent teacher as part of the Meditation Trust with what he hopes is a more down to earth approach. “The main thing to understand about TM, is that on the one hand it is the simplest thing you will ever learn, but there is definitely a subtlety to it which is why one needs a bit of guidance initially. There is no such thing as a good or bad meditator, anyone & everyone can meditate, but once learned it is a simple & precious skill you have for life.

Fantastic teacher. Understands the sceptics perspective and presents TM as ‘real meditation’. Lovely location/setting.

I particularly liked that it was factual rather than New Age

Just wanted to say thankyou very much again for the whole experience last weekend, I thoroughly enjoyed it and got an incredible amount from it. The group sessions were extremely enjoyable and helpful, I’m really enjoying the meditation and look forward to both sessions each day already, and am already seeing real benefit – I seem to have so much more energy and already seem to have a much clearer, happier mind and a key thing for me is that I’ve experienced no stress at work thus far this week, where before weekend the stress levels while at work were enormous each and every day, I’m now seemingly able to let things wash over me and take things as they come. I’m sure I’ll have ups and downs as everyone does, but suffice to say I’m pretty amazed at how tangible the benefits seem after only 5 days – I cant wait to see what its like in 5 months!
