How We're Different

From other techniques

 

Be sure you're getting the authentic TM technique

Beware of meditations claiming to be the same or similar to the TM technique. They are very different—and there is no evidence they provide the same benefits documented in the published research on the TM technique.

Certified Teachers of the TM Technique

Transcendental Meditation can only be taught by certified teachers in a course carefully personalized for each individual. All teachers of the TM technique have successfully completed an intensive 5-month in-residence Teacher Training Course, and they maintain their certification through ongoing professional courses for TM teachers.

If you learn meditation from anyone who’s not a certified teacher of the TM technique, you’re not learning the authentic Transcendental Meditation method.

 

Free lifetime support

All of these are available at no extra cost if and when you want them:
  • Personal one-on-one "tune-ups" of your TM practice
  • TM refresher courses
  • Access to certified TM teachers anywhere in the world to answer your questions
  • Involvement with a TM community

 

Personalized, one-on-one instruction

All certified TM teachers provide personal one-on-one TM instruction—as well as group sessions to provide further instruction and to ensure your TM practice is easy and enjoyable, and you’re gaining maximum benefit.

 

Helping those in need

More than 500,000 full TM scholarships have been given to at-risk children, military veterans, domestic violence victims, homeless people, and others in need, through partnerships with the David Lynch Foundation℠ and other non-profit organizations.
