“I've been practicing Transcendental Meditation most of my life. I think that does something to your nervous system. It has given me a calmness I don't think I had at 19.“
“I’d say a little over a year ago I started doing Transcendental Meditation and that’s really changed everything. Starting your day off with that and ending with that is pretty powerful. Twenty minutes, you just notice the difference! When I get lazy and don’t get it in, I can feel a difference in the day. So I try to meditate first thing when I wake up.”
“It changes your life, completely.“

“There’s something about TM. It’s the only time I have that stillness… It gives me this peaceful feeling. I just love it so much.“
Ellen de Generes
“For me, TM gives me a greater sense of focus and clarity. The one thing I want to continue to do is to centre myself every day and make that a practise for myself because I am one thousand percent better when I do that.”
“I'm quite a erratic thinker, quite an adrenalized person. But after meditation, I felt this beautiful serenity and selfless connection.”
“I have been "diving within" through the Transcendental Meditation technique for over 30 years. It has changed my life, my world.”

“Transcendental Meditation reminds you that it's how you feel inside that's important. If you have that, you have everything.“
“It's difficult to describe the effect it's had on my life. I can only mention maybe a few words: calm, clarity, a balance, and, at times, a recognition. It's made a difference.“
“It's a life long gift, you know. It's something that you can call on at any time, and I think it's a great thing.“
“I'm a great supporter of Transcendental Meditation. I've been using it for almost forty years now. I think it's a great tool for anyone to have.“
“It's a big thing in my life. It relaxes me completely. It's really useful, especially with my schedule.“
“I think that before I did Transcendental Meditation, I had a tendency to be negative towards everything… what Transcendental Meditation did is, now when I look at an individual, I can only see the positive.“
“I’m actually huge into meditation, Transcendental Meditation, and that really helps create not only a sense of balance, but all the other stuff – this is gonna sound cliche- but serenity and kind of a calm state of mind.”
“No other meditation, no other practice I've tried was as effective at quieting my mind and helping me to go to a very calm, centred place.“
"Since starting Transcendental Meditation, I have gained so much confidence in myself and my work. It keeps me clear and lets ideas & creativity flow no matter what's going on around me."
"I can honestly say that Transcendental Meditation is one of the most important, if not the most important parts of my day. The morning meditation sets me up for the day and the evening helps me to wind down. The mental clarity and ability to perform at higher levels for longer periods I undoubtedly attribute to its regular practice. It has made a profoundly positive influence on all aspects of my life professionally and personally."
"In 1975 I learned the Transcendental Meditation technique. Through it I found a new peace and well-being, and a new understanding of the unity of all humankind. I still practice everyday."
"I always wanted to be the life of the party. Behind the wheel of a car I was a maniac. I was lucky I didn't hurt myself. Everything was flat out like "formula 1" pace for me. After learning TM, I noticed the results straight away on day one. Sometimes you experience a profoundly deep inner silence and you come out feeling extremely blissful, almost like nothing can rattle you and you've got this storm going on on the outside but this peace on the inside."
"I was bullied from a young age and suffered depression for most of my life. After learning TM, I had confidence and peace of mind unlike any I had experienced before. It has helped me find true inner happiness, and passion for life."
"TM gives me the clarity of mind to make the right decisions in my business. No matter how stressful the day has been, those 20 minutes of eyes closed meditation refresh me like nothing else. It is a priceless technique that pays for itself in the first year and keeps on giving every day - I couldn't live without it."
"No matter how far I go from my nature, TM brings me back to my centre every time I practice it."
