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.
Ayres has been practicing the Transcendental Meditation technique since 1971, and teaching the technique since 1975. He received a B.S. in Management Information System from Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts and worked in the field of computer systems analysis and programming and later in computer data security. Ayres enjoys hiking, bicycling, sailing, and reading.
“Teaching the TM technique to people is the most fulfilling thing I have done. Students of this program start to gain the benefits from the time they begin, and we know they will continue to enjoy more benefits in all areas of their lives as they continue the regular practice of this simple, natural technique, and become acquainted with a whole new dimension of being.”
