What is Transcendental Meditation?
Transcendental Meditation, often referred to as simply TM is a form of mantra meditation that is practiced twice a day: from the moment we wake up and right before we fall asleep. During these times, there is a constant stream of thoughts that passes through our minds that range from simple abstract thoughts to more concrete ones. The purpose of this form of meditation is to allow your active thinking mind to settle down and experience quieter levels of thought and then experience the deepest levels of thought--the transcendental mind. This in turn allows the body to enter a great state of rest that will help to eliminate stresses that are faced by everyone on a daily basis. We then have more energy, creativity, and, are more ready to face daily life!
