I did not know anything about the Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique before meeting Jeffrey Abramson, a real estate developer in green building and wellness architecture, co-founder of the David Lynch Foundation, and chairman of the Board of Trustees of Maharishi University of Management.
After one of our conversations about how one builds an authentic community and civic engagement, he suggested that I consider learning TM. “I think you would enjoy it. You strike me as a thoughtful person. I think this could help you,” he said. He recommended I do a little research on what TM is and then let him know if I was interested.
I learned more about the TM technique on TM.org, and came back and told him that I would like to do it. Mr. Abramson was kind enough to provide me with a scholarship to take the training, and I took the TM course with a fabulous teacher at the Rockville, Maryland, TM Center in greater Washington, D.C.
My World Opened Up
After my first class, I felt the world open up. All of a sudden, I found I had the ability to think through difficult, complicated work and life situations in a clearer way. TM helped lift the clouds that previously had kept me from being able to do this.
I was also able to manage my longer days by including my TM practice. Additionally, TM has helped me think more expansively on the impact that I would like to have on the world. Today, I work for an environmental organization having a national impact on climate change and climate leaders. I do not know if I would have ever been able to see myself in such a role prior to learning TM.
Practicing the TM technique has helped me be more present, to feel more capable, and to be more of a champion for change in the world.
