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.
Linda Spitzfaden has been practicing the Transcendental Meditation program since 1975 and teaching it since 1983.

Her husband and three daughters all practice the TM technique.
“Practicing the TM technique really brings out the bliss in individual and family life.”
