The subjective experience of transcendental meditation: An interpretative phenomenological analysis
MetadataShow full item record
Transcendental meditation is a popular meditation technique that has been taught worldwide since the 1960s. The aim of this thesis was to explore the subjective experience and process of individuals who practice transcendental meditation in order to illuminate the essential meaning of meditating. Prior research on transcendental meditation, although exhaustive, has neglected the objective aspects of the technique and this thesis aimed to address this paucity, by supplementing the previous research with subjective insight and meaning.
