Thanks for that info poppers. I seen a poster in a subway advertising Meditation and inquired. There was a meetup at a very nice house in downtown London. Long and short of it all, the "instructors" there, gave me the creeps! It seemed as if they werent really themselves or something. It was TM as well. The instructors, were giving info and answering questions. I know I wasn't the only one that was a little uncomfortable, as few people just walked right out.
They didn't "charge" per say, but they asked you to give a certain percentage of your income for one month. After all was said and done there, it was a ceremony that you had to go through in a weeks time. You had to bring a bottle of wine and a white table cloth. During this ceremony you would give them an envelope with your "donation", and you would be assigned a mantra. The one guy speaking was saying how a specific mantra would be assigned to you, and what made me cringe was him saying they really wanted this whole thing to "really take root" as the instructor indoctrinated you or something.
It didn't feel right, so i never attended.
