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.

The Success Without Stress Mission

Success Without Stress is a student community of meditators striving towards the development of inner peace, confidence, and cognitive advantages through the practice of Transcendental Meditation. Our purpose is to create a network of students with these shared goals.

Peak Mental Performance

By improving the connections between the different parts of your brain, TM leads to cognitive advantage and improves mental performance. Scientific research has shown that regular practice of TM leads to greater creativity, critical thinking, problem solving, and memory.

Improved Relationships

The TM technique contributes to more successful and fulfilling relationships. TM reduces stress and tension, a major barrier to good communication. It has been found to develop broader awareness, greater happiness, and refined feelings and emotions.



Inner Peace

The TM® technique helps us cultivate a peaceful state of inner calm. The peace and calm experienced during the practice of TM flows into daily life. With TM, one can experience quieter levels of the mind.
