Balance your life …


Babies and children can be happy for no reason. As we get older, our happiness starts to depend on outside things like relationships, finances, success at work, etc. This dependency can turn our life into an emotional roller coaster.
Transcendental Meditation is a simple mental technique that restores our connection with our inner source of happiness. This helps to remain happy, no matter what the circumstances.

“It centers you. There is just a peaceful joy that comes over you.”
Jennifer Aniston, actress
“It’s twice a day where I get to ‘go home’. It’s realigning with my true self.”
Hugh Jackman, actor
“I found very quickly access to a deeper state of happiness. I felt love, love for myself but also for everybody else.”
Russell Brand, actor

Transcending = holistic side-benefits

TM also creates exceptionally deep rest, which has a lot of of side-benefits. More than 350 scientific studies from top universities like Harvard have been published in the past 50 years documenting these TM benefits. TM has been shown to relieve many stress-related health issues, improve mental potential and improve our relationships. Schools in more than 60 countries have started to implement it in their curriculum eg under the name “Quiet Time Program” and even the European Union recently provided a €0.5 Million grant for tests with TM in the school system. Many national health organisations are now also formally recommending TM as an option for doctors to prescribe, for example the American Heart Association in the context of treating high blood pressure.

“Quite simply, Quiet Time should be in every school.”
Dr. Carlos Garcia, Superintendent, San Francisco Unified School District, 2007-2012
“No other ‘stress management technique’ has anywhere close to TM’s amount of hard data in support of its claims to reduce stress.”
Dr. Norman Rosenthal, Psychiatrist, U.S. National Institutes of Mental Health

Transcending = Easy to do

Many people have tried some form of meditation and have found it difficult to do. The good news is that TM is very different. It is a very simple, natural and effortless technique, that doesn’t require any concentration or controlling of the mind. TM is taught individually by highly trained teachers and this personal coaching also makes it very easy to learn.

“When I learned about TM, I thought ‘I’ll try this, even though I’m not good at meditating.’ And there is something about TM, it is the only time I have that stillness. I never had that feeling before.”
Ellen Degeneres, talk-show host
“I would try meditations, because I knew that there was something there for me, but every time I would try to do it, I was like: I can not meditate. When I learned TM, it was exactly what I needed! TM is the easiest thing I’ve ever done, not just the easiest meditation, but the easiest thing.”
Cameron Diaz, actress
