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.

“I loved my TM experience so much, right from the day I first learned. Now, sharing this ever-deepening experience with others is my greatest joy and deepest fulfillment. I hope you’ll come and learn, and find out what I mean!”

“I spent two years teaching the TM technique to probationers, and it was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. My students had often lived in highly stressful environments, filled with anger and violence, and yet almost immediately after learning the TM technique they became more calm, more relaxed, less prone toward hostility. It was extremely inspirational.”
