Welcome to the Christchurch West TM centre
This is the official website for TM in the Christchurch West area. Transcendental Meditation is taught within Christchurch West and surrounding areas by certified, qualified teachers.
Transcendental Meditation was brought to the world by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi 50 years ago and has been learned by five million people.
Meet the teacher
Dr Lovell-Smith has over 35 years' experience as medical practitioner, researcher, author and teacher of Transcendental Meditation. He has enjoyed teaching over 1600 people of all ages and walks of life to meditate. Some of the more significant TM benefits he has reported in the world medical literature including the New Zealand Medical Journal, and he is author of the book "Perfect Blood Pressure, Naturally" (Penguin 2001).
"Perhaps its greatest benefit is that it's relatively quick to learn and easy to master. No waiting weeks or months of practice before you see results: TM cuts right to the chase, taking only days – or for some, minutes – before one feels reprieve from their painful and overwhelming thoughts."
