According to TM.org 2014, “What is the TM Technique? It is a simple, natural, effortless technique practiced 20 minutes twice each day while sitting comfortably with the eyes closed. The TM technique is easy to learn and enjoyable to practice, and is not a religion, philosophy, or lifestyle. Over six million people have learned it — people of all ages, cultures, and religions.
What happens when you meditate? The Transcendental Meditation technique allows your mind to effortlessly settle inward, through quieter levels of thought, until you transcend the thinking process and experience the most silent and peaceful level of your own awareness — pure consciousness, your innermost Self.
What is its value in daily life? Research on the TM technique has found that it produces many wellness benefits, including:
- greater inner calm throughout the day
- reduced cortisol (known as the “stress hormone”)
- normalized blood pressure
- lower risk of heart attack and stroke
- reduced anxiety and depression
- improved learning ability and memory
- reduced insomnia”
