Transcendental Meditation® (TM®) Technique


What is the TM technique?

It’s a simple, natural technique practiced for 20 minutes twice each day while sitting comfortably with the eyes closed.

The TM technique is easy to learn and enjoyable to practice, and is not a religion, philosophy, or lifestyle. Over six million people have learned it—people of all ages, cultures, and religions.


What happens when you meditate?

The TM technique allows your mind to easily settle inward, through quieter levels of thought, until you experience the most silent and peaceful level of your own awareness—pure consciousness.

This introductory video provides a clear description of what happens during TM practice.


What is the value of TM practice in daily life?

Extensive, peer-reviewed, published research on the TM technique has found a wide range of wellness benefits including:

  • greater inner calm throughout the day
  • reduced cortisol (the “stress hormone”)
  • normalized blood pressure
  • reduced insomnia
  • lower risk of heart attack and stroke
  • reduced anxiety and depression
  • improved brain function and memory
