There are many misconceptions about how to practice the Transcendental Meditation technique. Some people think it involves concentration or contemplation, while others think it is something that can be learned from a book. In fact, it is none of these things. The Transcendental Meditation technique is a simple, natural procedure that anyone of any background, age or gender can practice. There are now more than 6 million people worldwide who practice and enjoy the TM program.
The Transcendental Meditation technique does not involve any concentration or control of the mind. These practices keep the mind engaged in some way, for example, by focusing on an object like a candle or on something like your breath. Others keep us aware of thoughts or images. These practices keep the mind active in some way on the surface thinking level. The TM® technique allows the mind to simply, naturally and effortlessly transcend thinking and to experience a deep state of restfully alert consciousness. The holistic benefits that have been found to result from daily TM practice are the automatic result of this unique experience.
