Benefits of Transcendental Meditation

Benefits of TM

Many people say the TM technique has a transforming effect — they report major benefits in reducing chronic stress and anxiety, insomnia, hypertension, and other stress-related disorders.

Science has discovered that the TM technique provides a natural state of rest distinct from sleep, deeper and more revitalizing than ordinary relaxation. Studies show that this state of restful alertness not only washes away stress, it heals and transforms us holistically—as watering the root nourishes the entire tree.


The TM technique can give you access to more vitality. It is one thing you can do—15-20 minutes twice daily—to enrich every aspect of your life.

"When my mother passed away, I was searching for something in my life and really did not know where to look. By chance, a friend was arranging an Introductory talk about Transcendental Meditation at her home so I managed to persuade my husband to come along and we have never looked back since that day. We have found balance, gratitude and peace in our lives and this seems to be reflected in both our personal and working lives. I wish that more people would realise the wonderful benefits of practising Transcendental Meditation."

"Before our research was over, three of our clinicians had gotten Transcendental Meditation training. That's how impressed they were with what they saw.

No other stress management technique' has anywhere close to this amount of hard data in support of its claims to reduce stress."
