About Transcendental Meditation

Transcendental Meditation is an effortless technique for "recharging your mind and body" — and creating a brighter, more positive state of mind.

TM is natural and effortless and requires no belief or change in lifestyle. It is unique and totally different from other meditation practices. Decades of peer reviewed published research (over 700 studies) shows that TM is the most effective technique for reducing stress, depression and anxiety, improving health, optimizing brain functioning and increasing creativity. Plus it especially improves time management in even the busiest schedule. TM has also been endorsed by the American Heart Association as the only meditation technique proven to lower blood pressure, and to reduce death from heart attack and stroke by 48%!

Hundreds of published research studies have found that TM is highly effective on stress and anxiety, brain function, and cardiovascular health.

Don credits his success to Transcendental Meditation, which he has practiced every day since 1970.

“TM is a simple, mental technique that allows the mind to settle down in a very profound way. It is scientifically verified and not based on a belief system. It has made a huge contribution to my creativity because, the more settled and relaxed my mind is, the more I can see opportunities that I would otherwise overlook.”


Don has found Transcendental Meditation to be an extremely valuable tool in his business. " At SEI we help sponsor any employees who want to learn the Transcendental Meditation program. It’s amazing to watch the resulting positive changes in their lives.”

Research shows that people who practice TM have, on average, 80% less heart disease, strokes and cancer. If our employees are healthier, they’re going to be happier and more productive; so it helps our business."

Don's company donates a percentage of all profits earned to causes; the majority of this is directed to projects and initiatives related to the Transcendental Meditation program.

The David Lynch Foundation is an amazing resource for this practice. Make sure you watch some of their
excellent videos!

Learning TM is a seven step process. There is no financial commitment for the first 3 steps which include two introductory talks.
