TM-Sidhi Programme®

Culturing the ability to think and act from pure consciousness

"If we have practised the TM-Sidhi Programme, then the conscious mind will always start thinking from that deepest level of the self-referral state of intelligence. And any thought that emerges from there has the support of all the laws of nature. And any thought with the full support of natural law will always be fulfilled quickly without loss of time, without struggle and strife." - Maharishi

The TM-Sidhi Programme is a natural extension of Transcendental Meditation that enriches the personal development gained from Transcendental Meditation and accelerates the growth to higher states of consciousness.

Transcendental Meditation allows the mind to settle down effortlessly and naturally to experience transcendental consciousness – the Self – the silent inner reservoir of creativity and intelligence that underlies all our mental activity.

The TM-Sidhi Programme cultures the ability to think and act from that profound level so that all our thoughts and actions are more effective, developing increased skill in action - the ability to fulfil our desires naturally while effortlessly promoting the evolution of everyone and everything.

Practice of the TM-Sidhi Programme creates greater brainwave coherence, which is correlated with higher levels of creativity, intelligence, and inner happiness, ultimately resulting in the development of our full potential—or the experience of higher states of consciousness.

People who have learned the TM-Sidhi Programme often comment that it significantly enhances the benefits of Transcendental Meditation, improving health, increasing happiness, creativity and energy and enhancing their ability to gain support from the environment in fulfilling desires.

Who teaches the TM-Sidhi Programme?

The TM-Sidhi Programme is taught by teachers who have received special training under the guidance of Maharishi. Maharishi Vedic Experts from India and other teachers from abroad usually visit the UK each year. 





A wide range of benefits

Research on the TM-Sidhi Programme documents a wide range of benefits over and above those of Transcendental Meditation alone. Studies published in mainstream scientific journals document physiological and psychological benefits including: integration of brain functioning, improved cognitive ability, and better mental and physical health. For details see Research Summary and search for "Sidhi".

Yogic Flying

High levels of brain integration (global EEG alpha coherence) have been reported during the practice of Yogic Flying, one of the TM-Sidhi Techniques. During the first stages of Yogic Flying the body lifts up and moves forward in short hops. Internally, the experience is accompanied by feelings of exhilaration, expanded awareness, lightness, inner freedom and ‘bubbling bliss', with these qualities carrying over into daily life. The combination of inner silence and outer dynamism provides a powerful means of stabilising higher states of consciousness — enlightenment. 


What Meditators say about the TM-Sidhi Programme

"I find daily practice of the TM-Sidhi Programme the simplest way to develop my full inner potential in the most enjoyable way one could ever imagine! With every passing year life becomes richer and increasingly effortless."

"During the course I experienced boundless joy and bliss which was delightful. It was one of the best things I have ever done. My personal development has moved forward so far and fast. I would recommend the TM-Sidhi course to anyone who wants to have their desires fulfilled effortlessly and spontaneously."

Course Participants of a TM-Sidhi Course
"After practising the Yogic Flying technique I feel exhilarated, I feel lighter, I feel rested, and the main thing is, I feel flowing in happiness. It's amazing to be able to feel this good each day in such a natural effortless way."

"The TM-Sidhi Programme has significantly deepened and strengthened my experience of inner Being, the silent, unbounded core of life—my Self. And it has led to a stabilization of that inner unboundedness, even in the midst of my day-to-day activities. I've noticed, too, an increasing richness of perception that reveals new levels of beauty in the world around me. There have been so many wonderfully rewarding, unexpected benefits of this practice."

"In all honesty, I'm a bit of a sceptic and wasn't expecting much. To my great delight, I was completely blown away! The course was a true revelation, an unmissable and unforgettable experience. My only regret is not having done it sooner."

"The course attracts high expectations, but these were more than fulfilled. An amazing experience." 

"This course was powerful beyond expectation. I feel it has fundamentally shifted my perspective in life and my way of thinking. It has been empowering and inspiring!"  

"From the first weekend of the course my meditation practice has deepened and I transcend immediately. Truly amazing experiences. My life has changed immeasurably since starting the course. Awesome."


Creating Harmony in World Consciousness

More than 50 published scientific studies have shown that when the TM-Sidhi Programme is practised in groups, negative trends in society decrease and positive trends are enhanced. A powerful influence of coherence and harmony radiates in the environment, affecting the whole society. This effect on society has been named the 'Maharishi Effect' after Maharishi who predicted the effect in the 1960's.

Thus, in learning the TM-Sidhi Programme you will have a tool that could enhance your own personal development, and at the same time contribute to peace, stability and positivity in the world.

Advanced Techniques

All applicants are usually required to have been instructed in four Advanced Techniques of Transcendental Meditation before applying for the TM-Sidhi Programme. The TM-Sidhi Programme can be taken after two months regular practice since learning one's fourth Advanced Technique.

In response to the continuing need to create more harmony, peace and positivity in national and world consciousness, Maharishi Foundation UK has decided to offer further Fast Track TM-Sidhi Courses starting in March 2018 and the usual four Advanced Techniques will not be a requirement. All those who take the course are advised to learn at least one or two Advanced Techniques before the course starts in March and to complete all four Advanced Techniques as soon as possible after the course.
