Alison loved her practice of the Transcendental Meditation® (TM®) technique, but she found herself getting so busy that she was skipping her meditations. “After I learned TM, I had such good benefits. But then my life seemed to get busier, and I thought I didn’t really have time for it. After a while, I just let it go. But I really started missing it. I wanted my old meditation practice back. I decided that fixing this was a priority.”
Fortunately, it was simple to do. A “TM tune-up” or personal Checking with a Certified TM Teacher helps ensure that your meditation is easy and enjoyable and that you’re gaining maximum benefits.
“I finally made an appointment for TM Checking, and what a difference it made!” Alison reported. “My first words were: ‘I forgot how easy it was!’ It’s like pressing the reset button. It helps you get back on track with meditating the right way. Having that deep experience reminded me how much I missed having a quiet mind when making decisions and the extra energy that comes from the deep rest.
“It made me reevaluate my priorities, and I decided to get back to meditating regularly. The tune-up session was the perfect way to refresh my practice. I now plan to go in for TM Checking every month or two.”

Keeping Your TM Practice Effortless Ensures Lifelong Benefits
TM Checking is an important part of the free, lifetime follow-up for everyone who practices the TM technique. This one-on-one session with a Certified TM Teacher helps ensure that your meditation is easy and enjoyable, and that you’re gaining maximum benefits.
During the practice of TM, the mind settles down and experiences deeper and quieter levels of awareness. This happens spontaneously, without any effort, because quieter levels of the mind are more charming. The mind is naturally drawn to anything in life that offers greater happiness and fulfillment. That’s what makes practicing the TM technique so easy.
The Transcendental Meditation technique sets up the initial condition that allows the effortless transcending process to begin. If some effort or strain has crept into the practice, the Checking procedure takes you through some simple steps to remind you how easy and natural the TM technique is. But it isn’t only for people who are experiencing some lack of ease in their meditation. Most people come in for Checking just to ensure that they are getting the most out of their practice.

“It Makes My Meditation Smoother”
Alexia started meditating in Long Island, New York, in October 2009. “I’ve come in for Checking several times, and each time I was so glad I did,” she said. “I wondered why meditation is always so much more enjoyable at the TM Center. Then I realized that it’s because of the Checking procedure. It makes my meditation smoother, and I end up feeling more confident in my practice.
“I highly recommend it to everyone, especially if for some reason you are not able to meditate regularly. Checking will help you get back into the routine.
“I’m so impressed that the TM teachers make a serious, long-term commitment to everyone who takes the course. There is literally a lifetime of services. I met a woman who learned the TM technique 35 years ago, and she still comes in for Checking!
“I like the fact that I can go to any TM Center for group meditation or Checking, since these are services that I use pretty regularly. I also like that I can ask any questions I have. I went to the TM Center in New York City a couple of times, and they were happy to welcome me there.”

Hi Mike, There are a couple of Centers in RI, in Providence and Tiverton. To find the one you want, visit this page, which has all the contact info: https://enjoy.tm.org/group/guest/events. Enjoy!
I have been meditating since September, 1989. Haven’t been checked for quite a while.
That’s great, Ed! Congratulations on your longtime TM practice. Personal Checking is an enjoyable and satisfying experience no matter how long we’ve been meditating. Group meditations, which often include a Group Check, are also a wonderful way to “tune up” one’s meditation. Your local TM Center can let you know what their schedule is for both. Enjoy!
