Transcendental Meditation is an effortless, practical meditation technique that allows you to access a natural state of consciousness which enhances your brain function, improves your energy and creativity in daily life.

It's so easy, anyone can do it, over six million people of all ages, cultures, and religions have learned TM. TM allows your mind to easily settle inward until you experience the most silent and peaceful level of your own awareness.  It is completely different from other forms of meditation as it involves no concentrating or focusing, no trying to "empty the mind".

You do not have to take our word for it, hundreds of published studies support TM's positive effect on one's life, health, and well-being.
