How one technique can bring benefits to so many different areas of life

Researchers have concluded that Transcendental Meditation enlivens the body's inner intelligence, supporting its innate ability to heal itself. TM harnesses the source of nature's intelligence at the foundation of the mind, which improves all aspects of mental functioning. As mind and body are intimately connected, this has measurable effects on the body too. TM brings wide-ranging benefit to every area of life.

"Before our research was over, three of our clinicians had gotten Transcendental Meditation training. That's how impressed they were with what they saw.

No other stress management technique has anywhere close to this amount of hard data in support of its claims to reduce stress."
