About Us

Cathy Knoles


I have always had a deep interest in education and development of the full potential of the individual. I have taught in high schools as a teacher of English and History in Australia, England, Italy and the United States.

When I learned Transcendental Meditation(R) I could see the wonderful promise it had for education. I trained in India with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, to become a teacher of Transcendental Meditation.

The next 20+ years as the National Director of the TM organisation in Australia was a period of substantial growth in the spread of TM around the country. My experience in management of a non-profit organisation was gained in these years of establishing Transcendental Meditation teaching centres in all states, and organising large courses and public seminars, I have had the privilege of teaching thousands of people to meditate which gives each person a life-long tool for experiencing inner peace, happiness and good health.

In 1999 I moved to the United States and took a position at the Maharishi School in Fairfield, Iowa, as Principal of the Middle School and then Principal of the Girls’ High School, which involved managing a transition process for the High School which was very smooth. Working in that environment I experienced how fulfilling and successful an educational process can be when it incorporates TM into the curriculum. At this time I completed a Masters degree in Vedic Science at Maharishi University of Management,

A new organisation was established in 2008 in Australia to offer TM to women and girls. I was appointed the National Director of this new wing of the TM organization in Australia and have acted in that capacity since.

daily practise of Transcendental Meditation is the key to maintaining good health and keeping rested and balanced. The marked increase in orderliness of brain functioning helps you think clearly so that you can keep all the balls of life in the air and enjoy all opportunities that come your way.’

The TM Technique was so enjoyable to practice and the benefits were so rewarding, that I was keen to become an Instructor. Now, after decades of teaching TM, I am still charmed by the benefits that TM meditators experience in their lives right from the start. I am available to teach individuals, business teams and cultural groups in the beautiful Tropical North Queensland region. I also deliver interesting ‘toolbox talks’ about TM to organizations. Give me a call to arrange an initial talk.

Jan Charlwood

I have been teaching Transcendental Meditation since the 1970’s, and on the Mornington Peninsula since 1984.

My prime focus is on the growing TM community in Hastings. However, I also continue to teach the initial course of Transcendental Meditation to any interested in learning. I also provide on-going follow-up. I find it a great joy to teach TM in the enhanced environment of the Coherence Creating Centre in Hastings. Those who learn here enjoy the feeling that they both benefit from and contribute to this increased coherence.
