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.

“The healing transformation that rapidly unfolds when a person learns TM, brings immense satisfaction, and the sense of worthwhile achievement that every physician seeks. I feel teaching TM is the single most important thing I can do for anyone, patient or friend.”
