Transcendental Meditation is a simple technique practised 20 minutes twice a day while sitting comfortably.
It is not a religion, philosophy, or lifestyle. Over ten million people of all ages, cultures and religions have learned TM.
TM's scientifically proven health benefits
Hundreds of published research studies on the TM technique have documented its effectiveness on stress and anxiety, brain function, cardiovascular health and more
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 is completely different as it involves no concentrating or focusing, no trying to "empty the mind".
What people are saying
about Transcendental Meditation
Transcendental meditation is a simple, natural technique... This form of meditation allows your body to settle into a state of profound rest and relaxation and your mind to achieve a state of inner peace, without needing to use concentration or effort.
Perhaps its greatest benefit is that it's relatively quick to learn and easy to master. No waiting weeks or months of practice before you see results"
According to both the Australian CSIRO and American Heart Association (AHA), the TM technique is the only meditation technique that has been shown to effectively reduce high blood pressure.
A 2009 study found Transcendental Meditation helped alleviate stress in college students, while another found it helped reduce blood pressure, anxiety, depression and anger.

Anna Creese, Certified TM teacher
I have been Chairperson of the Victoria TM Centre for the last 8 years. I have been meditating since 1981 and teaching TM for over 20 years. I personally found TM of great benefit in terms of physical health. I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder and within 6 months of learning TM I was fine. However, I did not expect the additional benefits which helped me out psychologically. I experienced increased self-awareness leading to a deep internal transformation that allowed me to find myself in life. It is a wonderful feeling to know who you are and what you want. In teaching TM, I am deeply honoured to have witnessed great benefits in others who have learnt through our TM Centre. I wish all our future meditators life-changing experiences leading to happiness, health and fulfilment of all desires.
