(PRWEB) August 6, 2004
Wildly popular in the 1970s and 80s, Transcendental Meditation (TM) continues to be one of the most accessible forms of Eastern spiritual practice in the West. But does it live up to its hype? In this objective exploration of TM, consciousness researcher John White looks at whatÂs billed as Âa simple, natural, and effortless mental technique, practiced twenty minutes a dayÂ and takes on its critics as well as its cheerleaders. White explains what itÂs like to take a trip through the Âmountains of mind,Â the purpose of mantras, whether the Maharishi is enlightened, and what science says about consciousness-raising. He also provides a glossary of TM terms and a Âhow-toÂ lesson so readers can try it themselves.
