An Evidence-Based Approach

To date, more than 400 studies have been conducted at over 100 independent universities and research institutions and published in top, peer-reviewed scientific journals on the effects of the Transcendental Meditation technique for addressing problems caused or exacerbated by trauma and chronic stress. These findings are revolutionizing the way science and medicine treat stress.

“Transcendental Meditation has taken the stress out of my life – it has allowed me to relax. The anger is gone, the irritability is on a lesser scale, and I’m sleeping. I used to get three hours of sleep a night, but since I started TM, I’m often getting eight to ten hours a night.”
