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.

“I find that teaching the Transcendental Meditation Technique is more fulfilling and energizing than anything else I have done. Music and poetry are wonderful, joy–producing past–times, but TM teaching takes both teacher and student to the source of that joy: the field of pure creativity and intelligence within us.”
