Change Begins Within
David Lynch Foundation
The TM technique has been taught in Australia continuously since 1961. Beware of meditations claiming to be the same or similar to the TM technique. They are very different—and there is no evidence they provide the same benefits documented in the published research on the TM technique.
The TM technique can only be taught by certified TM teachers in a course carefully personalised for each individual. All certified TM teachers have successfully completed a minimum 2860 hours of instruction including an intensive 5.5 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.
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.
The TM technique is taught in Australia by Maharishi Foundation Australia Ltd, a non-profit, educational charity, along with our sister non-profit organisation, GMDO Ltd.
Our goal is to make the TM technique available to everyone. Each local TM Centre offers payment plans, and attempts to assist everyone to learn TM. For more information, contact your local TM teacher.
There are no owners or shareholders. No board members or other individuals profit financially from the organization's programs.
The TM course fee helps cover the operating costs of our 40 TM centres/locations and the national offices that serve them, in order to provide you instruction in and a lifetime follow up support with your TM technique.
The organisation's finances are audited annually by an independent audit firm.
All of these are available at no extra cost if and when you want them:
You'll be invited to advanced lectures, special events, group meditations, celebrations, online resources, and more.
Part of your course fee goes to helping those in need learn the TM technique through our partnership with David Lynch Foundation Australia. More than 1,000,000 full TM Scholarships have been given to at-risk children, veterans, domestic violence victims, homeless people, and others in need globally through partnerships with the David Lynch Foundation USA and other non-profit organizations.
