Transcendental Meditation unfolds the inner Creative Intelligence of everyone, by providing direct experience of the field of pure Creative Intelligence at the source of thought—Transcendental Consciousness.

Clarity of mind develops through Transcendental Meditation

Scientific research has documented numerous benefits of Transcendental Meditation:
∙ Increased Intelligence and Creativity
∙ Improved Memory
∙ Broader Comprehension with the Improved Ability to Focus, Leading to
∙ Improved Academic Performance
∙ Greater Efficiency and Achievement in Professional Life

Transcendental Meditation enlivens total brain functioning

Research studies using the electroencephalogram (EEG) have shown that during Transcendental Meditation, when the individual experiences a deeply settled and silent state of Transcendental Consciousness, coherence begins to increase throughout the entire brain simultaneously.

Increased brainwave coherence during Transcendental Meditation is correlated with—
∙ Higher Levels of Creativity
∙ Greater Efficiency in Learning New Concepts
∙ More Principled Moral Reasoning
∙ Higher Verbal Intelligence (IQ)
∙ Less Neuroticism
∙ Higher Academic Achievement
∙ Greater Neurological Efficiency (H-reflex)

Integration of Brain Functioning through Transcendental Meditation: High levels of EEG coherence measured during Transcendental Meditation are significantly correlated with higher creativity, greater efficiency in learning new concepts, more principled moral reasoning, higher verbal intelligence (IQ), less neuroticism, higher academic achievement, clearer experiences of Transcendental Consciousness, and greater neurological efficiency (faster spinal reflex recovery).
