How it works
Take a Transcendental Meditation (TM) workshop and follow their protocol for effective mediation. Its simple and effective.
I have been trying unsuccessfully for years to figure out the next chapter in my life now that my kids are growing up. Always filled with ideas, and starting projects, I never had the focus or where with all to see things through. After prodding from my friends and pilates instructor, I decided to try Transcendental Meditation (TM). You have to sign up for an orientation and then a series of classes that goes through the protocol and procedures for meditation. After the orientation, they have an initiation of sorts where you bring in flowers, a fruit and you receive your mantra. It was a bit hokey for me as I am not a particularly spiritual person, but I went with it. I have now been meditating every morning for about a year. At around the same time I started my meditation, I also took a stand up comic class. Now a year later, I have been doing stand up comedy. I produce a lunchtime comedy show, have a website, am working on a few different screenplays and have a documentary in the works regrading my year. Coincidence? I am not sure if it is a coincidence or not, but I am not willing to stop to find out. I wake up and the first thing I do is my 20 minute meditation. They recommend that you meditate twice a day for maximum results. I havent had the time yet but I am going to try...if it helps as much as once a day...well the sky is the limit.
