TM is a powerful and innovative educational tool for spontaneously developing the inner potential of students and teachers while systematically helping to neutralise the harmful effects of stress.

  • TM is practised by over 450,000 students in more than 800 schools in 60 countries including  U.S., U.K., Nepal, Australia, India, Bali, Thailand, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa and more.
  • Results are profound and exceptional. Supports the development of brain circuits  and processing speed in young and old that last a lifetime. Mental abilities and latent brain potential are able to develop along with enhanced academic performance. There is a decrease in ADHD and ADD, anxiety and stress.
  • TM promotes a greater sense of well-being and more positive relationships. As a result students and teachers report greater enjoyment of life with increasing success.

Harnessing the power of the brain

When practising Transcendental Meditation the whole brain functions in an orderly, coherent way which has many advantages for daily life and peak mental performance. High levels of EEG orderliness or ‘whole brain functioning’ leads to: 

  • increased creativity
  • greater learning ability 
  • higher moral reasoning
  • higher intelligence (IQ)
  • less neurotic behaviour
  • higher academic achievement
  • clearer experiences of pure awareness  
  • and more efficient functioning of the nervous system

Developing Intelligence

Students who regularly practised the Transcendental Meditation programme had a significantly increased IQ over a 2 year period, compared to control students. These students were over the age of 18, and an increase in IQ was therefore theoretically impossible. The control group indeed did not show an increase.

Neutralising Stress  in schools

“No other ‘stress management technique’ has anywhere close to TM’s amount of hard data in support of its claims to reduce stress.”

Norman Rosenthal – M.D. US National Institute of Mental Health

Spontaneously Improve Values

The New Zealand Curriculum promotes values to be ‘encouraged, modeled and explored’.  When the majority of students in a school are practising TM, the purpose of this goal is achieved spontaneously. The whole school atmosphere becomes increasingly harmonious, calm, focused and positive, creating an effective atmosphere for learning, growing and developing positive social connections.

Benefits for students, as supported by scientific research, include:

  • Reduced stress and anxiety
  • Greater use of brain’s potential
  • Improved academic achievement
  • Increased intelligence (IQ)
  • Increased creativity
  • Improved general health
  • Increased self-esteem
  • Increased tolerance and appreciation
  • Decreased alcohol and drug use
  • Higher level of moral reasoning
  • Increased field independence (not as easily influenced by others)
  • Plus fun or life enjoyment along with an increase in harmonious relationships too!
