London: Meditation pilot for city school - ProHindu |

  • tags: no_tag

    • Cardiff schools could introduce a pilot Transcendental Meditation (TM) programme to relieve stress on pupils. One unnamed secondary school is to give it a trial on a voluntary basis.

      It followers say TM is a means of clearing and resting the mind through a series of chants and relaxation exercises which anyone can learn.

      Freda Salway, Cardiff council's executive member for education, said anything to lessen the load was a welcome addition to the curriculum.
    • "The thing that's different about TM is that it teaches you to cope with the feelings that you do have rather than trying to get rid of them.
    • "It's practiced by millions of Muslims, especially in the Middle East, and it's no more true to say that TM is Buddhist than it is to say that singing is Christian."
