Only certified TM teachers can provide instruction in the authentic Transcendental Meditation technique.
In the U.S., the certification of TM teachers is available exclusively from Maharishi Foundation USA, a federally-recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit educational organization. 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.
Mark Cohen is the Director of the Transcendental Meditation program in Atlanta. He has been practicing the TM technique for over 40 years, and has been a TM teacher for 36 years. He holds a B.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies and Psychology from Maharishi University of Management and a Ph.D. in Vedic Science from Maharishi Vedic University in the Netherlands. In addition to teaching the TM program, he is also the Project Director for the David Lynch Foundation in Georgia. His passion lies in helping people reach their full potential and maximizing their creativity and intelligence. Dr. Cohen lives in Atlanta with his wife Sharon and their bearded collie, Chester.
“I never get tired of seeing how the Transcendental Meditation program positively impacts my students’ lives, in the most powerful and profound way. People find that they receive benefits right away, which continue to accumulate as they continue the practice. I am very committed to each of my students gaining the maximum from their practice.”
