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?

Transcendental Meditation unfolds the full potential of life for anyone. Extensive research has found it reduces stress and anxiety, resulting in more inner peace and creative thinking, improved health, greater success, and happiness. more

How do I learn, or find out more?

We regularly hold FREE introductory talks on Transcendental Meditation. You can register online for any upcoming talks, otherwise please call your local centre for more information.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.
