Why We Teach the Transcendental Meditation® Technique

Why We Teach the Transcendental Meditation® Technique

At the center of our Consciousness-based education is the Transcendental Meditation® (TM) technique. To transcend, by definition, means to go beyond human limitations and to break boundaries. At Maharishi School, we teach a technique to break internal boundaries and to sink deep into yourself, to tap into your essence and live in a state of flow. We believe that all parts of ourselves should be developed – the body, mind, heart, and consciousness – therefore the practice of TM® is required for all students. Our school day starts and ends with a few minutes of the Transcendental Meditation® (TM) technique.

TM® is a simple technique that is easily taught through one-on-one instruction by a certified teacher. It’s not a religion, philosophy or lifestyle. More than 340 scientific studies have been published in leading journals showing its efficacy in all areas of physical and mental health. It’s garnered the praise of distinguished institutions like the National Health Institute, American Psychological Association, University of Michigan, and American University.

At Maharishi School, we use Transcendental Meditation® (TM) technique to provide students an effective way to balance their own body and mind to promote optimal learning. We want to set our kids up with the best tools in order to succeed. We believe TM® is one of those tools.
