The following quote is from Brian, HMP Kingston:

I took the Correspondence Course in Raja Yoga Meditation. It made so much sense. I began to learn how to:
bullet-arrow allow my mind to clear,
bullet-arrow become calmer,
bullet-arrow become less frustrated,
bullet-arrow accept who I was as a person.


People that know me began to tell me that I had changed, that my body language was much more at ease and I was less intense. Over a period of years I have been able to quite naturally adjust myself in the way I think and react. Raja Yoga Meditation has offered me the tools and opportunity to look at myself in a balanced way, to respect myself and those around me.

I have learned that I need time to myself, without the pressure of my previous needs at a time when my life was out of balance. Now my outlook is quite different. Raja Yoga Meditation has allowed me to step away from a situation and see it and others from a different perspective. Raja Yoga has been a form (of meditation) that I found/find acceptable without being overbearing.
