Oprah Winfrey Speaks about her First Experience of Transcendental Meditation:
“It was a powerfully energizing yet calming experience. I didn’t want it to end. When it did, I walked away feeling fuller than when I started. Full of hope, a sense of contentment, and deep joy. Knowing for sure that even in the daily craziness that bombards us from every direction, there is still—the constancy of stillness. Only from that space can you create your best work and your best life.”
What is the Transcendental Meditation program?
The Transcendental Meditation program or TM is easy to learn and simple, natural and effortless to practice. Over 6,000,000 people have learned TM worldwide, and its beneficial effects have been validated by more than 360 peer-reviewed, published, independent scientific research studies.
The Transcendental Meditation technique, practiced for 20 minutes twice daily while sitting comfortably with closed eyes, enlivens total brain potential and gives the body deep rest. During TM, the mind settles to quieter levels of thought and even beyond thought to a state of inner silence—a silent reservoir of intelligence, energy, and creativity. At this time, the body correspondingly settles to a state of profound relaxation. The benefits of this deep energizing rest for the mind and body come spontaneously to all TM practitioners, regardless of age, religion, or lifestyle.
