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.

“I have enjoyed all my careers and the enrichment they have brought to my life. However, watching the stress melt away from my students’ faces and their inner being come shining through when I teach them the TM technique is beyond comparison. It is like “coming home” for both the teacher and the student.”
