Learn meditation in Sierra Leone

What is
Transcendental Meditation?

Transcendental Meditation is a simple technique practised 20 minutes twice a day while sitting comfortably.

It is not a religion, philosophy, or lifestyle. Over six million people of all ages, cultures and religions have learned TM.

"It is our birth right to be happy, to be alert..."

Hugh Jackman talks about TM

TM's scientifically proven health benefits

Hundreds of published research studies on the TM technique have documented its effectiveness on stress and anxiety, brain function, cardiovascular health and more

What happens when you meditate?

The TM technique allows your mind to easily settle inward, until you experience the most silent and peaceful level of your own awareness. It is completely different as it involves no concentrating or focusing, no trying to "empty the mind".

Chris Black & Norma Fonseca

Chris and Norma came to Sierra Leone in February 2020 to teach Transcendental Meditation to students and teachers as part of a school project in Freetown.
Norma learned TM while working as part of a fund management company in Scotland. Her success driven nature was the main reason for learning and within a few weeks she experienced more effectiveness, clarity of mind and an enjoyable work-life balance.
Chris also enjoyed the benefits instantly as a construction manager, being able to manage time more efficiently and handle difficult, fast paced contractual situations in a more calm and efficient manner.
They are both currently teaching TM regularly for the next month and are running instruction courses to the general public, professionals, NGOs and companies in Freetown, Sierra Leone.

TM can change your life

Find out more at an info session

The first step is to attend a free introductory talk or "Info Session".
This will be presented by a certified teacher of Transcendental Meditation and generally takes about 1 hour. You will find out:

  • Why TM is so effective for stress and anxiety
  • Why anyone can practise TM
  • What benefits you can realistically expect
  • How it works – the process of transcending
  • How TM differs from other meditations
  • What happens during TM

Following the talk there will be an opportunity to meet privately with the Teacher to discuss personal considerations.

The talk is a prerequisite to joining a course of instruction in TM, but there is no commitment to learn. It is open to everyone even if you only have a mild curiosity! Feel free to bring a friend.
