Hi, my names Si and I've been suffering from a lot of stress recently and it's affecting not just my job but my personal and family life.

I've heard that meditation can help a lot with combating stress, is this true? If so I’d be really interested in giving it a try as I don't particularly won’t to be taking drugs for stress!!! Like I said though if meditation can help relieve stress I’m willing to try it but I don’t know how to meditate or how to learn to meditate so I was wondering if anyone here could give me some advice or recommend a course to me?

I've done a little bit of research on the internet about meditation but haven't been able to come to anything conclusive. It's kind of hard to when I don't really know what I should or shouldn't be looking for. So far I’ve seen two courses that have caught my eye, they are and the other site I’ve seen is something called the Transcendental Meditation Program and the site for that is

Does anybody know anything about either of these sites? They both sound really good although the Transcendental Meditation sites course is too costly for me but in the first one the guy is offering a free meditation course. What do you guys think? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Kind regards & thanks
