How does it work? The TM technique allows the mind to effortlessly transcend, to go beyond busy or agitated levels of thinking to arrive at a peaceful, harmonious state of mind and body, the natural state of pure awareness or restful alertness. This experience is described as one's innermost self, where the mind is silent yet wide awake to it's full potential.Why practice TM

"There is something about TM. It is the only time I have that stillness. I open my eyes and I'm sad that it's 20 minutes later. It gives me this peaceful feeling—I just love it so much."

"Transcendental Meditation is that one simple procedure to enliven the most basic level of life and thereby raise every individual and every society to its full dignity."

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of the Transcendental Meditation program
