Transcendental Meditation is unique among
other meditations today and here’s why


TM is easy to do

During TM, the mind easily slips into a silent, settled state. TM requires no effort—no concentration or control of the mind, no monitoring of thoughts, and no trying to empty the mind.


Enjoy the benefits right from the start

No need to wait years to become an expert. Right from your first meditation, you will experience deep rest during the practice and increased ease in your daily life.


TM instruction is individual

TM is not a “one size fits all’ technique. Instead, you learn TM one-on-one with an experienced, well-trained, and compassionate certified teacher.


No change in lifestyle required

Whether a student, a professional, a stay-at-home mom, or retired, TM will fit into your life. In fact, you will look forward to the twice-daily peace of meditation and the reliable boost of energy afterwards.


A lifetime of follow-up

With TM comes a lifetime of free follow-up. We are here to guide you as your experience progresses and to make sure you receive all the benefits TM can provide.


An authentic meditation

TM comes from the ancient tradition of India and has stood the test of time. TM is an effective way to improve mental and physical health and it has a profound effect on every aspect of our lives.



Over 400 peer-reviewed research studies on TM show the remarkable effect of TM on the mind, body, emotions, spirit, and environment,

Feel Inner Calm Naturally

Through the relief from stress that TM brings, creativity blossoms and we feel a sense of balance, well-being, and happiness. Old habits are replaced by a healthier lifestyle. Even symptoms of hard-to-fix problems such as ADHD, depression, chronic anxiety, and PTSD are significantly relieved through the practice of TM When we rest, we re-charge. We see more. We feel more.

First, tend to ourselves, then tend to others. TM gives us deep rest and simultaneously expands our consciousness. We understand more, we discover surprising creative solutions and make the right decisions for success in life. Contact a TM teacher in your area to learn about the many benefits of TM and how they can improve your life.

“Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you.”

“Stress is the black plague of the 21st century. Modern medicine has no way to prevent it and no way to cure it. The research shows that Transcendental Meditation reduces physical stress and improves physical health. But it also improves mental health and behaviour, performance and productivity.”

- Bob Roth, Executive Director of the David Lynch Foundation, TM teacher, author and speaker

An Impressive Body of Research

The Transcendental Meditation technique is supported by 40 years of research that shows sustained improvements in health, emotional growth, and behaviour and powerful, long-lasting reductions in stress.

Over 650 research studies on TM have been conducted at more than 200 independent universities and research institutions and have been published in dozens of peer-reviewed medical and scientific journals.
