    Thanks for yet another great podcast. But did you hear my groan when you mentioned going for a Transcendental Meditation session soon? Like you noted, TM is rather cult-like and not at all needed. It’s just a business. You really do not need anything special (like a TM mantra that is not at all personal anyway).

    If you are looking for more depth in your meditation I would suggest you add some biofeedback to your practice so you can measure your progress. I use a Heartmath.com emWave2 device that measures heart rate variability (HRV) and its coherence. By using the emWave2 while trading, as well as for getting your meditation started, you will have a real measure of your physiological state that is most valuable. There is also an iOS Inner Balance version for use with Apple iPads.

    A most valuable recent book on HRV and coherence that includes a whole range of practical emotional management exercises is ‘Coherence’ by Dr Alan Watkins. Heartily recommended for all traders. This book along with one of the above devices is all you need and much cheaper of course than any TM course.

    Hope the above helps. And hope you don’t tell us one day you are joining the Scientologists! You are far too clever for them – as well as TM.

    Best regards,
