Oprah Winfrey speaks about her first experience of the Transcendental Meditation technique

“It was a powerfully energizing yet calming experience. I didn’t want it to end. When it did, I walked away feeling fuller than when I started. Full of hope, a sense of contentment, and deep joy. Knowing for sure that even in the daily craziness that bombards us from every direction, there is still—the constancy of stillness. Only from that space can you create your best work and your best life. So now I give myself a healthy dose of quiet time…Twenty minutes in the morning, twenty minutes in the evening. TM teachers have taught everyone in my company to meditate. The results have been awesome. Better sleep. Improved relationships with spouses, children, co-workers. Some people who suffered from migraines, don’t anymore. Greater productivity and creativity all around…”
