6 million people have learned the TM technique. Here’s what 5 of them have to say about their practice.
“It’s something that’s with you for your whole life. You learn your mantra, it never leaves you, and it’s the deepest rest your brain gets. For people that are so creative and have this kind of creative faucet that never turns off – it just continues and continues – it can be a little exhausting. And, you know, with the continual responsibility of having 127 people on the road, and always being the point person for everything, my subconscious is going even when I’m sleeping. I’m dreaming about whatever I’m creating next, or relationships, or blah, blah, blah. So I’m never really off. And meditation is actually the one time I get to really reset.” [source]
“After I did the first week of Transcendental Meditation where I did it twice a day, from that moment on I’ve never been that frazzled ever again, or that tired ever again. It was like it sort of restored my body on such a deep level. There was like a week’s worth of sleep. From that moment forward it was like a new day in a way. I felt like my whole nervous system reacted differently. I felt much less panicked and anxious and calm about things. But I also feel deeply centered and rested.” [source]
“I’ve tried a million ways to escape and expand, from psychedelics to psychics, yoga to benders, shamans, healers, therapists, lovers, you name it. When I met David the first time, I told him all my problems, and he then introduced me to TM. It has changed my life in so many ways. I am deeply in tune with my heart and core, and it’s made me a better writer, artist, and most of all woman. It’s made me more myself.” [source]
“I recently just started doing Transcendental Meditation with Bob Roth at the David Lynch foundation recently. I originally started it to help me with anxiety & insomnia. It’s already made my life waaaaaaaaaaaaaay better & even with my stage fright. Which I used to think there was no cure for…Last night was the first night I’ve slept 8 hours naturally in my entire life. I felt the best I have in ages. It’s better than any medication or all of the other nonsense I’ve tried. Check it out [source]
“One of the things — and this comes from someone who was highly self-critical and a type-A personality — that has changed my life is meditating. The simple act of making my brain shut off for 20 minutes in the morning and 20 minutes at night may not seem like much, but what ends up happening, besides creating space in your day, is your awake posture begins to replicate your meditative posture.” [source]
