Frequently asked questions
20 minutes twice a day to practice TM seems like a lot. How will I find the time?
Think of it as taking a vacation two times per day.
People who learn TM usually have a long term goal in mind like managing stress, or improving happiness, intelligence or self-confidence. TM practice usually has strong short term benefits as well, however. It is enjoyable to do and people immediately feel the effect, and that creates a far stronger motivation to take those 20 minutes twice a day.
For example, waking up half an hour earlier to do the morning TM practice sounds difficult, and it does require some discipline in the first few days, but after a while most people notice that their sleep improves, (stress is the number one disturbing factor for sleep quality) and they actually need less sleep, so then waking up a bit earlier is not quite as hard as it seems.
Next people are wondering how they will find time in the evening, after a busy day of work, only to discover that those 20 minutes become the moment of the day they most look forward to. TM practice is usually a very enjoyable experience and it’s far easier to make time for something that’s enjoyable. On top most people find that it is kind of like recharging your batteries, something that is highly appreciated at the end of a busy work day. The time that is invested in TM practice usually comes back immediately that same evening, simply because people have more energy to enjoy the rest of the evening.

What people are saying
I have done so many meditation courses, but there was always something that felt not right; I missed something. I did not feel satisfied. When I learned TM, it felt just like coming home to me. Finally I have found it.
This technique is truly one of a kind.
I am meditating now for almost 30 years and my general health is excellent, especially when compared to my peers. Not only did it make my creativity grow remarkably, but also my ability to deal with a team of employees and actors in an inspiring and stimulating way.
I am still amazed on a daily basis to see how such a simple, natural technique can generate so many positive effects. And it is also nice to do.
