Ask A Question


I can answer questions about life lived free from stress, and on techniques used to transcend thinking, gain deep rest, and eliminate stress stored in the nervous system, including: how they work, their benefits, and how to learn them. I have been practicing Transcendental Meditation for 45 years, and was made a TM teacher in 1972. I currently teach Natural Stress Relief (NSR).

Experience in the area

I am President of Natural Stress Relief/USA (NSR/USA). I distribute the English hardcopy version of the NSR self-instruction learning materials. I am a former teacher of Transcendental MeditationŽ (TMŽ), having been trained in the 1971-1972 by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi for eight months in residence. I currently teach NSR.

What do you like about this subject?

Transcending is a simple, natural procedure for rapidly achieving a state of deep relaxation while maintaining mental alertness. It prepares one for dynamic activity and clear thinking. I like the refreshment it brings to my life and I enjoy helping others discover this natural, effortless process.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

The fulfillment of meditation is really the ability to act freely and effortlessly. This happens when personal desires and misery no longer overshadow natural full functioning of the nervous system, mind, and body.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

NSR Meditation improves every aspect of life through a few minutes of effortless practice twice a day.
