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.
When he learned the TM technique in 1993, Vincent was a hydrogeologist, a scientist that specializes in the study of groundwater. But his TM experience inspired him to become a TM teacher, and after finishing the first part of his training, Vince served as an Assistant at the TM center in Asbury Park, New Jersey for two years. He then went on to complete his training in early 2000. Currently, in addition to teaching the TM technique, Vince is a part-time licensed massage therapist specializing in the Myofascial Release (MFR) technique.
“TM is a precious gift to humanity that enables individuals seeking relief from life’s stresses to experience direct access to the source of peace and creativity within themselves. What an honor it is to teach people this remarkable technique from this ancient and time tested tradition of pure knowledge and to witness the blossoming of their full potential from their 20 minutes twice daily practice!”
Cathy has been a TM teacher since 1976 and started teaching TM in the Hamptons in 1978. One of her greatest joys was having the opportunity to teach Transcendental Meditation and the Science of Creative Intelligence for credit at the university level. Living on the beautiful eastern end of Long Island has inspired Cathy's photography where her work can be seen in some local libraries and restaurants. Her work has been shown in and around the NY metropolitan area at ArtWalk and Photography for Medicine.
“Teaching the TM technique to people from all walks of life, from high school and college students to attorneys, artists, writers, actors and actresses, restaurant servers, entrepreneurs and retired grandmothers, and everyone else in between, is always a privilege and a delightful experience.”
