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.

Carol holds an M.A. in Counselor Education and an M.A. in Maharishi Vedic Science. She first knew that she wanted to teach the Transcendental Meditation technique while working as a high school guidance counselor. She had been practicing the TM technique since 1973, and found that her students were more interested in reducing stress in their lives and finding inner happiness than in solving their day-to-day problems. It was then that she realized that she would have more to offer as a teacher of the TM technique than as a guidance counselor. She and her husband Bob teach the TM program in Southeast and Southwest Iowa, Northern Missouri, and Western Illinois, and have taught in businesses, educational settings, and to individuals from all walks of life. She enjoys bike riding, swimming, hiking, and family.

“I love seeing the positive changes in all the people I teach. I cannot imagine a more fulfilling and worthwhile profession.”
