Work Smarter, Not HarderOur brain drives everything we do and most people take it for granted. Often, it is only when our brain becomes less effective that we realise its importance. Unfortunately, by then, often there isn’t much we can do to fix it.
The brain is like a muscle, the parts we use stay strong and the other parts weaken. When we feel stressed our brain goes into “fight-or-flight”-mode, which allows for quick, impulsive actions, but shuts down the “smart thinking” part of our brain to create this speed. Prolonged stress can weaken our brain so much that it can become difficult to think clearly and creatively in general.
Transcendental Meditation (TM) is the most practiced (6 million practitioners), most widely researched (600 studies), and, according to the research, the most effective meditation technique in the world to reduce stress and improve brain functioning. During this very easy practise, the body experiences uniquely deep rest, a significant reduction in stress hormones and an increased alertness in the brain. Scientific research shows this unique experience leads to improved memory, concentration and creativity.

Transcending = holistic side-benefits
TM creates exceptionally deep rest, which has a lot of side-benefits. More than 350 scientific studies from top universities like Harvard have been published in the past 50 years documenting these TM benefits. TM has been shown to relieve many stress-related health issues, improve mental potential and improve our relationships. Many national health organisations are now also formally recommending TM as an option for doctors to prescribe, for example the American Heart Association in the context of treating high blood pressure. And in Switzerland, leading health insurance provider Swica is now reimbursing part of the TM course fee.
Schools in more than 60 countries have started to implement TM in their curriculum to help students to be “ready to learn”, eg under the name “Quiet Time Program”. And even the European Commission recently provided a €0.5 Million grant for tests with TM in the European school system.

Transcending = Easy to do
Many people have tried some form of meditation and have found it difficult to do. The good news is that TM is very different. It is a very simple, natural and effortless technique, that doesn’t require any concentration or controlling of the mind. TM is taught individually by highly trained teachers and this personal coaching also makes it very easy to learn.

What people are saying
I have done so many meditation courses, but there was always something that felt not right; I missed something. I did not feel satisfied. When I learned TM, it felt just like coming home to me. Finally I have found it.
This technique is truly one of a kind.
I am meditating now for almost 30 years and my general health is excellent, especially when compared to my peers. Not only did it make my creativity grow remarkably, but also my ability to deal with a team of employees and actors in an inspiring and stimulating way.
I am still amazed on a daily basis to see how such a simple, natural technique can generate so many positive effects. And it is also nice to do.
