They also include follow-up sessions that take place in person, online, or a combination of these options, according to your preference. Whether you opt for a hybrid or in-person TM course, you will be guided throughout your course by a certified TM instructor. After your course, you will also benefit from ongoing support from your instructor, or any TM instructor across the U.S. Both courses also include access to the TM app, which comes with a TM timer, a library of knowledge, and access to group meditations.
