When John McHale learnt Transcendental Meditation a year ago, it was quite by chance. Being naturally a contented person, and with a successful career as the Project Manager for a commercial property development company in the UK, he was feeling more than satisfied with the way his life was going.
''Having always been a happy person, I wasn't particularly searching for something that would bring more to my enjoyment of life. In fact I found out about Transcendental Meditation by accident whilst watching some videos of Russell Brand stand up [comedy] on YouTube. I came across another video that mentioned his practice of Transcendental Meditation. Watching this video and subsequent ones led me to go for my 30 minute introductory talk in Cambridge.''
Despite considerable doubts, he decided to go ahead and learn.
''My teacher Jonathan Hinde was the perfect instructor for my sceptical mind. He answered my questions with a combination of experience, knowledge, and patience, and was not at all fazed by my probing into the benefits that all seemed too good to be true at the time.''
John also mentions that the course fee was initially a concern. ''Now I am in no doubt that it was the best investment I will ever make in terms of the health and life benefits. If a tablet could provide the same benefits I am sure that the cost over a lifetime would be hundreds or thousands of times more. In addition Jonathan's time, which he continues to give generously a year on, seems incredible value when compared with the charges made by others, such as life coaches or health professionals.''
Experiencing the good effects of the technique first-hand, John went on to inspire several of his family and friends to learn as well.
''Some of my family and close friends are now benefitting from the increased sense of well-being and happiness that meditating brings. The knowledge that my friends and family are getting these benefits is the greatest gift that Transcendental Meditation has given me.''
Global Good News will continue to feature this profile of John McHale, in which he goes on to describe how practising Transcendental Meditation has helped him become more healthy and more resistant to the stresses of a very demanding career.
