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 five million people have learned it— people of all ages, cultures, and religions.
The TM technique 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.
What are the benefits of the TM technique?
Science has discovered that the TM technique provides a natural state of rest distinct from sleep, deeper and more revitalizing than ordinary relaxation. Studies show that this state of restful alertness not only washes away stress, it heals and transforms us holistically—as watering the root nourishes the entire tree. more

How TM is different
Unlike most meditation practices, Transcendental Meditation involves no effort.
It's easy to learn, enjoyable to practise, and most people experience benefits from the start. The technique provides access to the reservoir of creativity, energy and intelligence deep within everyone – for more effective thinking, increased happiness and greater well-being.
What TM is not
It's not a religion, philosophy or lifestyle. It's not concentration, contemplation, or trying to be mindful—nor is it common "mantra" meditation. Transcendental Meditation is a simple mental technique. People often find that regular practice of TM helps them achieve clarity to pursue their highest aspirations.

"Since doing TM I feel more in control, more balanced, more creative and able to cope in situations that would have got to me before I started meditating. My friends and family say I am more calm, compassionate and focused. I can really feel a change in myself and think it is one of the best things I have ever done. I wish I had found it sooner as it would have helped me enormously, especially through my degree were I felt massive stress. It is truly a gift and I now appreciate life."
