FREE Transcendental Meditation talk
14th March @ 7pm
Have you ever heard or tried Transcendental Meditation? We will be hosting an introductory talk on TM in our glorious upstairs studio on the 14th March with Dr Donn Brennan, one of the first western medical doctors to train in Ayurveda in India.
Our body has far more power to heal itself than we know. The experience of transcending creates the ideal condition to activate the body’s innate healing power. Fortunately this is a lot easier than previously thought, as confirmed by 600 scientific research studies, 6 million people practicing TM worldwide and 40,000 in Ireland. It only requires the right technique and proper training.
True meditation is easy. Anyone can learn it, it’s enjoyable, natural and very effective. Most people think that meditation involves some kind of mind control, forcing the mind to be quiet through some kind of concentration – on the breath, a sound, or “being in the now”. Concentration goes against the nature of the mind and is hardly enjoyable. TM, however, is extremely easy and pleasant.
