A TRANSCENDENTAL Meditation (TM) teacher is hoping to spread some bliss on the autumn equinox.

Will Treend will host the unity-themed event at Brading Roman Villa on Monday, September 23, at 4pm.

Meditators of any experience are welcome to join, as well as those who have never meditated and are interested in finding a little more peace in their lives.

The day will include a mind settling technique, meditation practice, some short videos and talks from various speakers regarding different exercises.

Will, who has more than 20 years of teaching experience, said: "TM allows us to reach the state of least excitation for mind and body.

"Unlike mindfulness, which is concerned with trying to calm the surface value — the mind working on the mind, so still in action mode — TM allows the brain to go into an idling mode, taking a blissful and rejuvenating mental bath that results in deep rest."

The event is free to attend, although donations towards the cost of the room will be welcomed.
