Authentic Transcendental Meditation technique
Transcendental Meditation (TM) is a simple, natural, effortless technique which is taught in a systematic, standardised way throughout the world to ensure that everyone gains the evidence-based benefits. TM Advanced Programs are available only to those who have learned Transcendental Meditation from an Certified TM teacher. All the official TM Centres in Australia are those listed on this website. By contacting any of these centres you will have access to an Certified TM teacher.
International Organisation structured by the Founder of Transcendental Meditation
The founder of the Transcendental Meditation technique, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, structured a global educational organisation.
Teachers of TM are trained and teach through this organisation. This ensures that the TM Technique is permanently maintained in its purity and effectiveness. All Certified TM teachers work through these non-profit educational organisations established for this purpose in their country.
Certified Transcendental Meditation teachers
The TM technique can only be taught by Certified TM teachers in a one on one instruction session followed by group sessions to provide further instruction and to ensure your TM practice is easy and enjoyable, and providing maximum benefits.
All Certified TM teachers have completed a 5-month in-residence Teacher Training Course, and they maintain their accreditation through ongoing professional courses for TM teachers
How the TM course is structured
In the course to learn TM the teacher provides personal one-on-one instruction in the technique with three consecutive follow up sessions, and further follow up over the next four months. You will have ongoing access to Certified TM teachers throughout Australia and around the world to support your TM practice.
Helping those in need
In many countries around the world more than 500,000 full TM scholarships have been given to at-risk children, veterans with PTSD, domestic violence victims, homeless people, and others in need, through partnerships with the David Lynch Foundation and our own non-profit organisations. The David Lynch Foundation has been established in Australia to bring the benefits of the TM program to similar at-risk individuals here.
