Transcendental Meditation doesn’t focus on breathing or chanting, like other forms of meditation. Instead, it encourages a restful state of mind beyond thinking… A 2009 study found Transcendental Meditation helped alleviate stress in college students, while another found it helped reduce blood pressure, anxiety, depression and anger.
TM is an acceptable and potentially
beneficial way of helping people with their post-trauma mental health recovery,
particularly after experiencing violence. The finding provides initial evidence for the
acceptability and feasibility of TM as a mental health intervention. Furthermore,
across treatment, the women showed potentially large improvements in PTSD
symptoms, as well as moderate changes in depressive symptoms.
The CSIRO Healthy Heart Program published in 2008 states, “A recent report suggests that evidence is not strong enough to recommend general meditation as a treatment for high blood pressure. A specific form of meditation, however, known as Transcendental Meditation, has been shown to be very effective”

Our focus is to make the TM technique available to everyone, including at-risk populations throughout Australia.
Maharishi Foundation Australia, a registered not-for-profit charity, teaches the TM technique in Australia, as does our sister not-for-profit organisation, GMDO Ltd.
The TM course fee helps cover the operating costs of our national network of 40 TM Centres/locations and the national offices that serve them to provide TM Courses and free lifetime follow-up support for meditators.
