To gain more out of life – more happiness, more inner peace, less stress and strain. There's an epidemic of stress in the world today and TM has been proven to reduce anxiety and stress for everyone who practises it.
The rest we get from sleep is not enough to reduce the accumulation of stress and fatigue in our daily life.
Everyone can enjoy the benefits of Transcendental Meditation (TM). TM enables you to realise your full potential. Many people aren't aware of all the tension they carry - it feels normal. However after learning TM they realise how far they have moved forward in every aspect of their lives - improved relationships, less stress, more creativity and better health.
We just practise TM twice a day for 20 minutes twice a day, sitting comfortably with our eyes closed. That's enough to enjoy all the benefits.
People do TM because it's natural, effortless and enjoyable, and you appreciate the benefits gained from the short time you take out of your busy day. It's important what we prioritize. If you want the arrow to hit the target, you must first draw it back on the bow. Gaining strength and focus through deep rest is the basis for success in a busy life.

The state of consciousness experienced during Transcendental Meditation (TM) is significanlly different to the states of deep sleep, dream or waking. Transcendental Consciousness is a state of restful alertness – where the body is deeply rested but

"You notice results very quickly. Within the first 4 days I was more creative. I was more focused and less agitated. Now I am able to do things that I didn't understand I could do."

A one-time tuition fee is charged for TM. You only need to learn TM once and then you have it for life.
You can practice and benefit from TM at any time, anywhere, without getting any help or guidance from someone else.
You learn TM over 4 days. After that you carry it inside yourself everywhere you go. If you want a tune up you can contact any TM Center in the world for free and attend events worldwide.
In short, TM is a great way to invest in yourself! You'll reap the benefits of a calmer, more creative, more energised life.
A study demonstrated that TM practitioners had a marked decrease in health expenditure. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), health is a complete state of physical, mental and social satisfaction / happiness, and it is not just the absence of illness or disability.
Many diseases are psychosomatic, that is, originate from the mind or are caused by chronic stress effecting the body. TM is scientifically proven as helpful in the prevention and treatment of many diseases.
TM instruction is not offered during the intro talk because learning is a personal, one-to-one experience.
Following the talk there will be an opportunity to meet privately with the teacher to discuss personal considerations. Attending an intro does not commit you to learn - it's an opportunity to find out more about the benefits and answer any questions you may have.
Music directs attention outward. In contrast TM directs the attention inward, to the source of thought, so there is no need to listen to meditation music.
During TM the mind experiences quieter levels of awareness, spontaneously. A secondary factor such as music interferes with this process, and will hinder minds natural tendency towards inner silence.
TM does not require any focus. Putting attention on chakras requires focus. The concentration in chakra meditation is not natural because it requires effort. TM does not require effort and is suitable to the natural tendency of the mind.
TM has a positive effect on all energy centers (chakras) because TM is enlivening the basis of life (pure consciousness). Instead of giving attention to the chakras one by one with chakra opening meditation, it is wiser to revive the pure consciousness which is the basis of the chakras. Thus, all chakras are opened in the most appropriate evolutionary stage.
Medication does not interfere with the beneifts of meditation. Over time, as the mind and body become stronger with TM, you may find the need for medication is gradually reduced.
No, during TM you don't need to control your breathing. You do not need to TRY to relax. TM is effortless. No concentration is required.
When the mind settles down with TM, the body also automatically settles down. This naturally causes more refined breathing.
During TM we dive into our natural, inner silence. Our busy minds gradually become quieter. This in turn has an effect on our body - breathing can slow down by 40%. This slowdown in breathing comes from changes in the frontal cortex functions in the anterior part of the brain. This effect of TM is natural and spontaneous - it requires no effort.
TM is practiced in any position you find comfortable. Most people sit comfortably on a couch or chair. It's not important to sit in the lotus position but it is important to be comfortable.
