Transcendental Meditation

In early 2021 I was trying to figure out what to do with my TM writing, but I looked back on the previous year and realized how much traffic I got during the horribleness that was 2020.

Life changed when I started TM in 2014 and as of this writing it’s been seven years since my first session. I still do it every day, twice a day for 20 minutes.

When I realized the amount of traffic I received I decided to leave all of this up. I know that 2020 was a horrible year, but I continue to believe that TM saved my life.

Depression took me down a horrible rabbit hole in 2014 and TM brought me back from the literal edge. I do mean that. I was so depressed I stood on the edge of the parking garage at me work, staring down.

To this day I don’t know why I stepped down, but I did.

I made an appointment with a TM teacher the following week. It alleviated things greatly.

I never would have attempted to leave a well-paying job to write full-time or move my family without the confidence I’ve gained in myself through my twice daily meditation.

I’ve written posts about TM, four of which were picked up and published by

TM changed my life and if you have any questions about TM, please ask.

I may not write as much on the blog as I once did, but I do write a lot daily at home, though it’s fiction.

  1. Thank you for sharing your experience. Your story of what brought you to TM really resonated with me, as I feel that I am in a similar depressed state as what you described. I am considering starting TM (I’ve gone to the intro meeting), but my biggest fear is that I’m putting too much hope in TM, that it won’t be as life altering for me as it sounds like it’s been for you, and that I will be disappointed, which will only make me feel more depressed. Do you have any insights/reassurances you can offer me?
