Consciousness and Creativity
“The Transcendental Meditation technique is a simple, effortless way to dive within, to experience an ocean of pure consciousness, pure creativity, pure knowingness.
It’s a unique experience but also very familiar – it is your own Self.”
David Lynch, filmmaker and chair of the David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace
Your brain did not come fully assembled at birth. Through the natural processes of maturation and experience, your brain is being created anew at every moment, to support all your thinking, deciding and behaviour.
The experience of restful alertness during Transcendental Meditation creates the optimum condition to unfold your full potential, for maximum intelligence and creativity in a completely effortless way.

“In many published research studies, the Transcendental Meditation technique has been shown to be the most effective technique for reducing stress and rebalancing the biochemicals in the body to produce improved physical and mental health. This has been corroborated by research showing that practice of the TM technique reduces health care utilization by 50%. ”
