Frequently Asked Questions

What happens during TM?

The TM technique allows your mind to easily settle inward, through quieter levels of thought, until you experience the most silent and peaceful level of the mind — your innermost Self.

I’m not good at controlling my mind

That’s ok. Unlike other forms of meditation TM involves no concentration, no control of the mind, no contemplation or monitoring thoughts. TM practice is completely effortless.

Can I learn TM from a book or video?

Imagine trying to learn to drive a car or play the piano. A good teacher is invaluable as they can show you the proper technique.

It is easy to learn TM, but it does require personalized interactive guidance. This is why it is taught one-on-one by a certified TM teacher.

There is no other way to learn the authentic TM technique — in order to gain the full range of benefits documented in the published research on the TM technique.

What is the TM course fee?

See the TM Course Fee page.

Does it matter if I’m skeptical?

No, it doesn’t matter. You do not need to believe it will work for it to work. That’s because during TM the mind effortlessly allows your active thinking mind to settle down to a state of deep inner calm. It’s automatic.
