Transcendental Meditation allows the nervous system to access a special quality of rest different from ordinary rest and relaxation - and in some ways deeper than sleep. It allows the brain to break out of the cycle of stress. The frontal lobes of the brain are then able to coordinate mind and emotions, and you see life in perspective once again.

TM for PTSD

Imagine learning a golf swing or the violin. You know how valuable it is for a good teacher to show you the proper technique.
Transcendental Meditation is easy to learn, but requires personalised interactive guidance. For this reason, it's taught only through one-on-one instruction by a certified TM teacher.
There is no other way to learn the authentic TM technique — and there is no evidence that anything else provides the full range of benefits documented in the published research on TM.
Transcendental Meditation allows your mind to easily settle down, through quieter levels of thought, until you experience the most silent and peaceful level of your own awareness — pure consciousness.
No problem at all. Unlike other forms of meditation, TM involves no concentration, no control of the mind, no contemplation, no monitoring of thoughts. It is completely effortless.
The effectiveness of Transcendental Meditation is the same whether you believe it will work or are completely sceptical. That's because it automatically and effortlessly allows your active thinking mind to settle down to a state of deep inner calm.
