Learn how to Meditate

Transcendental Meditation is taught on a personal, one-to-one basis by certified TM teachers. Personal instruction allows everyone to learn at their own pace, and ensures maximum effectiveness of the teaching.

The first step in learning Transcendental Meditation is to attend a free, one hour introductory / preparatory lecture, which will provide a more in depth understanding of the TM technique and its benefits. Your instruction in Transcendental Meditation will then take place in four 60 to 90 minutes sessions over four consecutive days. This initial instruction is followed by a series of weekly and monthly checking sessions, which can be scheduled at your convenience over your first four months of practice.

The Seven Step Course

  • 1) Introductory Lecture: An overview of the Transcendental Meditation technique and its scientifically verified benefits: enhancing mental potential, improving health, enriching social relationships, and promoting world peace.
  • 2) Preparatory Lecture: An in-depth discussion of how Transcendental Meditation works, where it comes from, why it's easy, and how it is different from other forms of meditation.
  • 3) Personal Interview: A short one-to-one meeting with your TM teacher, following the preparatory lecture.
  • Personal instruction in the technique will then be given over four consecutive days. Each session will take about 60 - 90 minutes.
  • 4) Initial Instruction: One-on-one instruction in Transcendental Meditation with a certified TM teacher.
  • 5) First Day of Checking: A chance to ask questions, gain further instruction, and verify the correctness of your practice.
  • 6) Second Day of Checking: Developing a more in-depth understanding of the mechanics of Transcendental Meditation, on the basis of your own personal experience.
  • 7) Third Day of Checking: Understanding higher states of human consciousness.

Additional Checking Sessions

The initial seven step course is followed by several weekly and monthly checking sessions, which can be arranged at your convenience over your first 4 months of practice. These sessions allow you to further refine your TM practice, and ensure you are receiving maximum results. Each checking takes about half an hour.

Following your Transcendental Meditation course, you are eligible to take advantage of our lifetime follow-up program, and schedule a meditation checking session with any certified TM teacher, worldwide. These sessions generally take about half an hour.
