What if we were to start with the 'cost' of learning TM? And what if "The New Movement" (Buck, how long have you had this idea ;-) were to target the numerous yoga studios and their hatha yoga teachers and students?
I know hundreds of hatha yoga teachers, and only a few who have any form of meditation practice. What if TM were taught in these numerous yoga studios for starters? Or maybe this is already happening . . . turquoiseb Sat, 16 Mar 2013 12:02:12 -0700 > As for the nature of this "new movement" that Buck talks about, well that's another question, isn't it?
