In the beautiful Bay of Plenty, New Zealand, we offer Transcendental Meditation, a simple, natural technique. Increased Energy – Clearer Thinking – Better Health.

The TM technique is practiced in a comfortable sitting position, eyes closed, for a period of 15-20 minutes twice a day, morning and evening. It brings deep rest to mind and body which naturally dissolves accumulated stress and tension. The process also enlivens the balanced functioning of the whole brain and you become an increasingly effective person finding contentment in whatever you do.

Explore this website to discover the full range of benefits which have been verified by more than 600 published scientific studies. TM is a unique system – easy to learn and enjoyable to practise – taken up by over 40,000 people in NZ since 1970.

Founded by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the TM programme is standardised worldwide and administered in New Zealand by the Maharishi Foundation Inc. a non-profit educational organisation. The basic course of instruction and follow-up help is available in the Bay of Plenty through these qualified instructors.
