The Transcendental Meditation course is taught in a few main steps:
- You attend a free introductory talk by a certified TM teacher to learn why the TM technique is so effective for stress and anxiety, how it improves brain function and memory, what happens during the practice, and more.
- You meet privately with a certified TM teacher. This free personal interview normally takes place right after the intro talk.
- Personal instruction (1–2 hours). One-on-one instruction in the TM technique with a certified TM teacher.
- TM course follow-up (2-3 hours per day). Additional guidance and instruction, either at home or in person depending on what you agreed with your teacher.
The TM Community app offers follow-up content for different types of students, once they have learned TM from a certified teacher.
It’s not possible to learn the Transcendental Meditation technique from the TM Community app (or any other app)—it will always be with a certified TM teacher in a one-on-one in-person session.
But, the TM Community app ensures that you’ll have ongoing support so that you feel confident with your TM practice and can enjoy the many benefits.
