What you should know about us
Authentic TM technique
Beware of meditations claiming to be the same or similar to the TM technique. They are very different—and there is no evidence that they provide the same benefits documented in the published research on the TM technique.
Certified TM teachers
The TM technique can only be taught by Certified TM teachers in a course carefully personalized for each individual. All Certified TM teachers have successfully completed an intensive 5-month in-residence Teacher Training Course, and they maintain their certification through ongoing professional courses for TM teachers.
If you learn meditation from anyone who’s not a Certified TM teacher, you’re not learning the authentic TM technique.
Personalized one-on-one instruction
All Certified TM teachers provide personal one-on-one TM instruction—as well as group sessions to provide further instruction and to ensure your TM practice is easy and enjoyable, and you’re gaining maximum benefit.
Free lifetime support
All of these are available at no extra cost if and when you want them:
- Personal one-on-one “tune-ups” of your TM practice
- Access to Certified TM teachers anywhere in Australia to answer your questions
You’ll be invited to knowledge meetings, special events, group meditations, celebrations, online resources, and more.
Helping those in need
In North America, more than 500,000 full TM scholarships have been given to at-risk children, military veterans, domestic violence victims, homeless people, and others in need, through partnerships with the David Lynch Foundation and other non-profit organisations.
The Transcendental Meditation technique is available in the Australia through Maharishi Foundation Australia, which is registered with the Australian Charities for Not-for-Profits Commission as a not-for-profit educational organisation. All revenues from course fees go entirely to support the organisation’s educational initiatives.
No owners or shareholders
As a non-profit, 100% of the TM course fee supports our educational initiatives. There are no profit distributions of any kind.
The organisation’s finances are audited annually by an independent CPA firm.
