In this video, a meditation specialist gives newcomers an introduction to Transcendental Meditation. There's an overview of the problems that can be treated using this meditation technique, and what your first steps would need to be if you plan on practicing it.
Hi, my name is Sunita Passi from Tri Dosha. We're specialist training providers in Ayurvedic massage, nutrition and meditation. And I'm looking forward to telling you about how to transform your life with a variety of different techniques.
I'm hear to tell you about transcendental meditation. Transcendental meditation is actually an ancient technique that was practiced in India thousands and thousands of years ago, to calm the mind, which in turn, calms the body's nervous system. So that it would reduce, it would reduce stress at a very deep level.
Today, transcendental meditation is a technique that's used for very deep relaxation and rejuvenation to bring about a very intense state of rest. It's used to treat all sorts of conditions, everyday health problems as well, such as stress, anxiety, tension, and insomnia. It's also used to treat serious health problems, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, asthma, and bronchitis problems.
So it's very effective in many many different forms. It's easy to learn. There's no ability required.
You haven't got to go through a number of different courses, before you're allowed onto the TM course. You simply need a book with an accredited TM practitioner and you would sit through four sessions, four two-hour sessions of training. Within this training, you're given a technique, which you'll then learn to meditate on.
And then over the four days, you are also given theory which relates to the technique and how you can use it in your own life. There's also lots of scientific research to show how effective this style of meditation is. You can actually have a look on the TM website, and you'll actually be able to download a lot of the documents that support the health benefits.
I hope you've enjoyed listening to me about TM. And I look forward to telling you about other meditation practices. Thank you.
