Transcendental meditation is a deceptively simple meditation technique that uses a mantra — a repeating word, phrase or sound — to help a person clear their mind and attain a deep state of relaxation or awareness. If mindlessness is our automatic reaction to everyday events and interactions with others, transcendental meditation seeks to go beyond such reactions,
to experience the source of thought — pure awareness, also known as transcendental consciousness. This is the most silent and peaceful level of consciousness — your innermost Self. In this state of restful alertness, your brain functions with significantly greater coherence and your body gains deep rest.
Transcendental meditation is practiced twice daily for 20 minutes at a time. Transcendental meditation (TM) is one form of meditation that’s been in practice in the U.S. now for nearly 50 years. As many forms of meditation have a fair amount of research conducted on them, apparently so does TM. While not many of the studies done on TM are randomized controlled trials, some are.
