Transcendental Meditation® has been learned by 10 million people, including 1 million inner-city youth in high-crime communities.
Nationwide income-based pricing will help millions more in the U.S. to start to meditate to reduce stress, improve creativity, and increase happiness.
NEW YORK, July 9, 2019 — TM® turns 60 this year. First introduced in the US in 1959 by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi:
∙ the Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique has now been learned by more than 10 million people, worldwide
∙ its health benefits have been documented through more than 400 published peer-reviewed research studies
∙ through the efforts of filmmaker David Lynch, the technique has been taught at no charge to more than one million inner-city youth, veterans with PTSD, and adults and children battling substance use disorder
Studies on inner-city students have found the TM technique improves academic performance and reduces toxic stress and violence.
However, the need for Transcendental Meditation is more urgent than ever, according to quantum physicist Dr. John Hagelin, who heads the TM organization in the U.S.
''We live in an epidemic of stress. Tens of millions of Americans are anxious or depressed—or feel overwhelmed and overburdened by the critical need to be more productive, more creative, more energetic, and more focused than ever,'' Dr. Hagelin said. ''People are learning TM because it's a simple, easily learned technique that markedly reduces stress, promotes health, improves brain and cognitive functioning, and promotes happiness and self-actualization.''
To celebrate the sixtieth anniversary, Dr. Hagelin announced a national initiative to teach the TM technique to millions of Americans in the next five years. To facilitate the process, a new nationwide income-based pricing plan is being introduced in July, based on annual household income.
''This will bring the extraordinary benefits of Transcendental Meditation to a broader audience. The one-time course fee now starts at $380 for full-time students, and increases based on an individual's earnings,'' Dr. Hagelin said.
The plan will be implemented at all Transcendental Meditation centers in the U.S., and will apply to all instructions booked on and after July 1.

The TM course comes with a satisfaction guarantee, and includes a lifetime of free personal follow-up.
The Transcendental Meditation organization also offers partial grant support to deserving individuals in need.
