What is Transcendental Meditation?

Transcendental Meditation is a simple, natural and effortless technique practiced 20 minutes twice each day while sitting comfortably with the eyes closed.

The TM technique is easy to learn and enjoyable to practice. Over six million people have learned it— people of all ages, cultures, and religions. 

How Transcendental Meditation Works

Transcendental Meditation allows your mind to easily settle inward, through quieter levels of thought, until you experience the most silent and peaceful level of your own awareness— pure consciousness.  This deeply restful experience rejuvenates the mind and body, leading to a wide range of benefits in daily life.
