About Transcendental Meditation

Transcendental Meditation is a simple, natural, effortless technique practiced 20 minutes twice a day while sitting comfortably with the eyes closed. It’s not a religion, philosophy or lifestyle. TM is taught in a personal course of instruction by a specially-trained, certified teacher.
