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.
Harry Martinian is the Director of the Transcendental Meditation program of Long Island. He learned the TM technique in 1968, and became a TM teacher in 1972. He holds a B.F.A. in Communication Design from Pratt Institute, and is a designer, educator, and entrepreneur. In addition to teaching the TM program, Harry is a poet and visual artist who works in assemblage and collage.
“Teaching the TM technique gives me tremendous personal fulfillment. It is so rewarding to teach people, knowing that they now have a simple, effortless way to enrich themselves every day.”
