The importance of learning from a Certified Teacher

While there are many practices described by the word “meditation,” the
Transcendental Meditation technique is distinct from all other meditation practices,
and is the only program whose benefits have been verified by over 600 scientific
research studies. more

In the United States, the Transcendental Meditation technique is taught through the Maharishi Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Maharishi Foundation certified teachers of the TM technique not only have many years of experience practicing the technique, they have also successfully completed an intensive 5 month in-residence Teacher Training Course, developed by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of the TM program, and maintain their certification through ongoing professional courses for TM teachers.

Only by learning the Transcendental Meditation program from a Maharishi Foundation certified teacher can you be assured of receiving the authentic Transcendental Meditation technique and gaining access to all the advanced programs of knowledge and experience that have been structured for your benefit by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

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.”
