The importance of learning from a Certified Teacher

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.

“There is nothing as rewarding as introducing a person to TM because each person who practices the TM Technique begins to unfold unique potential and to meet personal goals, some of which seemed unattainable before using this simple, natural practice.”
