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.

“Being a teacher of the TM technique is the most fulfilling thing that I do. There is nothing that compares to teaching such a simple and profound technique, knowing that it will nourish my students throughout their lives.”
