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.

Marcia learned the Transcendental Meditation technique in Washington, DC in 1971. After graduating from the University of Maryland in 1972 with a bachelor’s degree in sociology and social work, she went to Spain to become a teacher of the TM technique. Before moving to Providence in 1993, she taught in Baltimore and Washington, DC. Marcia enjoys the ocean, cooking, and making unusual jams and chutneys from locally grown ingredients.

“I feel so lucky to be teaching TM. I have received so much from my own meditation practice that I feel it is my responsibility to give others the opportunity to learn. It’s such a joy to see the personal growth in each of my students.”
