TM course details

To ensure the success of each student, TM is taught exclusively by certified instructors. Your instructor will guide you through your entire TM course and will continue to be available for ongoing support. This personalized and comprehensive service will give you a solid foundation for a lifetime of benefits from your TM practice.

Session 1: In-person one-on-one instruction On day one, you'll learn the essentials of TM and meditate for the first time. Afterward, you'll discuss your experience with your instructor, who will help you evaluate and refine your new practice. Sessions 2-4: In-person or online classes Each of these classes will include a meditation with your instructor, as well as further instruction on the dos and don’ts of correct practice, discussion, and feedback on your experiences. Topics will include how to know you’re meditating correctly, the mechanics of TM, how to fit meditation into your life, what different experiences during TM practice mean, what you can look forward to with regular practice, and more.

The majority of the TM course can be taken either in person or remotely. The first session, however, is always held in person, at a local TM Center or teaching space. There are TM Centers in most major cities, and 170+ teaching locations in the U.S.
