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.

He is Associate Chair of the Department of Physiology and Health at Maharishi University of Management, in Fairfield, Iowa. He has a Master’s Degree in Vedic Science, and PhD in Physiology, specializing in Maharishi AyurVeda.
“Teaching Transcendental Meditation is the most fulfilling profession in the world,” Paul say. “There is nothing like teaching someone how to easily contact their own inner Self”.
