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.

“Today we have an exponential explosion of information. Life is really telling us to develop our fullest capacities, both to enjoy ourselves and to give our best to society. I’ve seen first-hand thousands of people who have begun the TM program and discovered, through this small and simple addition to their daily routine, how easily they can expand the container of knowledge — their awareness — and gain greater health, creativity and delight in their lives.”
