Authentic TM technique
Beware of meditations claiming to be the same or similar to the TM technique. They are very different—and there is no evidence they provide the same benefits documented in the published research on the TM technique.more
The TM technique can only be taught by certified TM teachers in a course carefully personalized for each individual. All certified TM teachers have successfully completed an intensive 5-month in-residence Teacher Training Course, and they maintain their certification through ongoing professional courses for TM teachers.
Personalized one-on-one instruction
All certified TM teachers provide personal one-on-one TM instruction—as well as group sessions over the next three days to verify correctness of the practice and provide further instruction.
