TM technique

The TM technique is different from most systems of meditation and relaxation.

Over 5 million people around the world have learned the technique since it was founded by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in 1957-58.

The TM technique is very simple to learn and practise, yet it brings great practical benefit to all areas of life.

People learn The TM technique for many reasons:

Reducing stress and bringing balance to life
Improving health - especially with stress-related problems
Personal effectiveness - clarity of thought, creativity, getting more done
Improving relationships
Self Knowledge - fulfilling life's deepest need

The first scientific research on Transcendental Meditation was published in 1970. By now there are many hundreds of published studies, which document the benefits for mind, body, relationships, and the environment. Details of some of these studies are referred to in these web pages.
The TM technique is easy to learn. It is neither mind-control nor mental discipline; it is not concentration, eastern philosophy, or a way of life. You don't have to control your breathing or muscles. You don't even have to try to relax. It's a simple technique.

It is taught in the same systematic way all around the world.


  • The Natural Stress Relief technique ($25.00 only) is similar to the original TM taught by Maharishi in 1958, with a single basic syllable or "mantra" suitable for anybody (around 1970 Maharishi started to prescribe different "mantras", but this did not change the effects of TM at all). The Natural Stress Relief technique preserves the full effectiveness of Maharishi's TM and is 3 to 4 times more effective than Bensonís relaxation response and other techniques, including autogenic training, self-hypnosis, audio brainwave techniques, meditation techniques.

  • The Natural Stress Relief technique was created by R.Harrison (Ph.D. in physics), an expert practitioners of the original technique (since 1983) and a former TM teacher. He was charmed by the changes in EEG patterns during the practice of TM and he studied them in physical terms with another physicist, Fabrizio Coppola.
