Learning Transcendental Meditation and Course Fees

Learning to Meditate - The Seven-Step Course

The Transcendental Meditation technique is taught in a standard seven-step course, which includes public lectures, private instruction and group seminars. At each step of instruction, new knowledge is presented to provide a clear understanding of your growing experience.

The seven-step course includes two lectures describing the benefits and how the technique works, a short interview, and four days of instruction. The first three steps can be taken at any time and are free of charge. Ring your nearest TM Centre/Teacher to arrange a presentation.

  • Step 1: Introductory Lecture—A vision of all possibilities through the Transcendental Meditation program (1 hour)
  • Step 2: Preparatory Lecture—The mechanics and origin of the Transcendental Meditation technique (1 hour)
  • Step 3: Personal Interview—Interview with a qualified teacher of the Transcendental Meditation programme right after the Preparatory Lecture (10-15 minutes)

Four Days of Instruction

    The last four steps are always taken on four consecutive days, and include a course fee.

  • Step 4: Personal Instruction—Learning the Transcendental Meditation technique (1-2 hours)
  • Step 5: First Day of Checking—Verifying the correctness of the practice and further instruction (1-2 hours)
  • Step 6: Second Day of Checking—Understanding the mechanics of the Transcendental Meditation technique from personal experiences (1-2 hours)
  • Step 7: Third Day of Checking—Understanding the mechanics of the development of higher states of consciousness (1-2 hours)

Follow-Up Programme

Once you complete the seven-step course, you’ll be invited to attend a group follow-up meeting, held about two weeks later. This meeting allows the teacher to check your meditation, provide additional knowledge based on your daily practice, and to answer any questions you may have. After completing the initial course of instruction there will be a series of checking sessions over the following months to make sure that the maximum benefit is being gained from the practice.
