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.

“There is nothing more fulfilling to me than presenting this wonderful technique, and seeing how people of every age, personality, and profession light up from within after learning. Everyone feels happier, less stressed, more creative, and fulfilled. It is a complete delight to play a role in the personal development and growth of every person who learns the TM technique.”
