Has Anyone Tried TRANSCENDENTAL MEDITATION?

Has Anyone Tried TRANSCENDENTAL MEDITATION?

What is the difference between transcendental meditation and just meditating?
It's quite expensive to do a course on it so was wondering if anyone knows of some free trials in it?

Has it helped you? And in what way?

I was able to take the Tm course 15 years ago. There are times when I don't do it and it really makes life harder. I have known about a cheaper, much cheaper way to learn meditation along with a personal mantra which is the main thing about TM. It's called The Deborah King Center, it's almost identical to TM. Check it out if your interested. She is a Master Healer and has history of major abuse but overcame a lot of her demons. Good luck..

This is interesting! I have been meaning to take up meditation and the two resources given here seem good. I can see value in both escapist and reality meditation ...

I did TM quite a few years ago. I didn't really like the mantra, it was a really boring uninspiring word. Now, on the rare occasions I remember, I use Om instead. This post makes me want to give it another go.

I have tried TM and found that it was helpful. Haven't practiced it for years now. Still remember my mantra however. I bought a CD of meditations recently on Amazon. Have not tried them yet, but I plan to maybe this evening.

The only between meditation and TM is the mantra which they give you at the center. You can have your own mantra. You don't need a mantra to meditate unless you prefer on. Meditating consists of remaining silent in your self talk. I meditate holding onto an image that I select. You can also find meditation music on You Tube, as well as, guided meditation.
