Transcendental Meditation

The Transcendental Meditation technique allows your mind to
settle inward beyond thought to experience the source of thought,
the most silent and peaceful level of consciousness-your innermost self.

Transcendental Meditation

Transcendental Meditation is a method for relaxation, stress reduction and self-development that was introduced in India in the mid-1950s by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi (1918–2008).

TM became more popular in the 1960s and 1970s, as the Maharishi shifted to a more technical presentation and his meditation technique was practiced by celebrities. At this time, he began training TM teachers and created specialized organizations to present TM to specific segments of the population such as business people and students. By the late 2000s, TM had been taught to millions of people, and the worldwide TM organization had grown to include educational programs, health products, and related services.

The TM technique involves the use of a sound or mantra and is practiced for 15–20 minutes twice per day. It is taught by certified teachers through a standard course of instruction.
