Our Policy:

One of the unique features of TM is that personal instruction is delivered by highly qualified certified Teachers on a one-to-one basis. This is one of the reasons for TM's great success. Revised Government guidelines permit us to restart the delivery of training providing it is performed online where possible. At the same time, they allow for limited face-to-face sessions where necessary.

We are pleased to announce we are starting to offer courses to learn Transcendental Meditation from 4th July onwards.

There are four key sessions of about 90 minutes each on four consecutive days for learning Transcendental Meditation.

At this time, most Teachers will deliver follow-up sessions with the support of a new TM App, which runs on iOS and Android mobile phones, together with Zoom video-conferencing. The initial session of personal instruction will still be in person, but the following three sessions can be covered with the use of the TM App. This provides a comprehensive and interactive experience and is supported by daily group meditation and personal check-ins via Zoom with your teacher.

Where feasible, some teachers may provide face-to-face follow-up for small numbers. Please contact your local teacher to check their plans and available dates.

Before you come for personal instruction your local teacher will provide you with guidance as to how we are meeting Government, Health & Safety Executive & WHO guidelines. We are confident that learning Transcendental Meditation will be a safe, enjoyable and fulfilling experience.

What is TM?

What is Transcendental Meditation

Transcendental Meditation is a simple, natural, effortless technique practised 20 minutes twice a day while sitting comfortably.

It enables mind and body to access a special quality of rest. Over ten million people of all ages, cultures and religions have learnt TM. Anyone can learn!

Daisy Lowe on TM

What happens
when you meditate?


The TM technique allows your mind to easily settle inward, until you experience the most silent and peaceful level of your own awareness. It differs completely from other meditations as it does not involve concentrating, or trying to empty the mind or be in the present - it is completely natural.

"Transcendental Meditation gives me an island of calm
in the midst of so much turbulence"

What is TM's value
in daily life?

Stress and anxiety are harmful to health, happiness, creativity and productivity. Hundreds of published research studies on TM verify its effectiveness for reducing stress, improving focus and clarity of mind, strengthening immunity and much more.

"Life finds its purpose and fulfilment in the expansion of happiness"

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
Founder of Transcendental Meditation

Take the first step

Public introductory talks are currently being replaced with online webinars.
These are advertised under each location. If your local Centre is not advertising a webinar, please call them direct. Otherwise ...

Register for an online info session

The first step is to attend a free introductory talk or "Info Session".
This will be presented by a certified teacher of Transcendental Meditation and generally takes about 1 hour. You will find out:

  • Why TM is so effective for stress and anxiety
  • Why anyone can practise TM
  • What benefits you can realistically expect
  • How it works – the process of transcending
  • How TM differs from other meditations
  • What happens during TM

Following the talk there will be an opportunity to meet privately with the Teacher to discuss personal considerations.

The talk is a prerequisite to joining a course of instruction in TM, but there is no commitment to learn. It is open to everyone even if you only have a mild curiosity! Feel free to bring a friend.
