We often say, “Enrich your practice,” but what does that mean, when the TM technique, by itself, can do so much?
The Transcendental Meditation® technique is beneficial for everything from reducing stress and improving our health to personal development. It also provides a solid foundation for enhancing all aspects of our day-to-day lives. To this end, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of the TM technique, introduced a number of additional programs for self-development. He also gave us a rich body of intellectual knowledge that provides a profound understanding of the full unfoldment of human consciousness and its practical application in daily life.
These techniques and programs, and the intellectual understanding behind them, can augment our TM practice and enrich our personal development and life as a whole. Together, they make up 7 great reasons to explore EnjoyTM.org.
