Transcendental Meditation

I have been practicing Transcendental Meditation regularly since 1975. I have found it to have a wide range of benefits, including improved mental clarity, improved interpersonal relationships, and improved health. Although to some people the words “Transcendental Meditation” might suggest something mystical or religious, it is actually neither. It is a simple mental technique, nothing more and nothing less.

Transcendental Meditation gives the experience of transcendental consciousness, a fourth state of consciousness beyond and distinct from the waking, dreaming, and sleep states of consciousness. Transcendental consciousness is characterized by deep restfullness combined with a high level of alertness.

Contacting this state of consciousness develops all areas of life. This is because transcendental consciousness is the the state of pure consciousness, and all areas of life have consciouness in common. If we think of spirituality as meaning the totality of life in all its aspects taken together, then we can say that Transcendental Meditation develops spiritual awareness.
