Benefits of Transcendental Meditation
Many people say the TM technique has a transforming effect — they report major benefits in reducing chronic stress and anxiety, insomnia, hypertension, and other stress-related disorders.
Science has discovered that the TM technique provides a natural state of rest distinct from sleep, deeper and more revitalizing than ordinary relaxation. Studies show that this state of restful alertness not only washes away stress, it heals and transforms us holistically—as watering the root nourishes the entire tree.
The TM technique can give you access to more vitality. It is one thing you can do—15-20 minutes twice daily—to enrich every aspect of your life.
