“I learned Transcendental Meditation in 1998 while a student at Oxford University…. In fact, TM was by far the best thing I learned at Oxford. I am now a professional chess player and wouldn’t dream of playing a serious game without meditating beforehand. After meditating I feel calm, centered and ready to compete.” –Jonathan Rowson, Ph.D., British Chess Champion for 3 consecutive years. He currently leads The Social Brain Centre at Britain’s Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts.
