In the United States, the Transcendental Meditation technique is taught through the Maharishi Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Maharishi Foundation certified teachers of the TM technique not only have many years of experience practicing the technique, they have also successfully completed an intensive 5 month in-residence Teacher Training Course, developed by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of the TM program, and maintain their certification through ongoing professional courses for TM teachers.
Only by learning the Transcendental Meditation program from a Maharishi Foundation certified teacher can you be assured of receiving the authentic Transcendental Meditation technique and gaining access to all the advanced programs of knowledge and experience that have been structured for your benefit by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
Susan Wilbert has been practicing the Transcendental Meditation technique since 1992.

She holds an MA in Education and Dance from Stanford University, and enjoys art, painting, and gardening.
“Sitting with someone as they learn the TM technique is the most enjoyable part of my life, the fulfillment of my lifelong interest in mind/body coordination. It is such a simple process that transforms every area of life.”
