Explore the Full Potential of the Self Weekend


April 13-15, 2018
West Palm Beach Marriott

This special weekend is open to all practitioners of the Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique and its advanced program who are receiving an Advanced Technique during the weekend or already have at least one Advanced Technique. The course is not related to the 2 week Advanced Maharishi Vedic Science Course.

Q: What is the cost and what is included?

A: We have limited rooms at the following rates: $950 single, $1250 double ($625 per person); Full-time TM-Teacher rate: $750 single and $1050 double ($525 per person). Once these rooms sell out, then the costs will increase by $100 for singles and $200 for doubles. The cost includes two nights’ accommodation and vegetarian meals for Friday dinner, Saturday lunch and dinner, and Sunday lunch.

Q: What will happen on the course?

A: Extended practice of your TM (or TM-Sidhi program if applicable), instruction in easy-to-practice Maharishi YogaSM Asanas, as well as a simple neuro-respiratory breathing technique called Pranayama. These gentle mind/body programs aid in easily removing surface stress and strain, smoothing the way to deeper experiences of TM practice.

This specially designed course will provide deep, rejuvenating rest for the body and mind. This deep rest will allow the body to naturally eliminate deeper stresses and fatigue, enhancing clarity, energy, and happiness when you return home.

Q: When does the course start and end?

A: The course begins Friday afternoon at 2:00 pm with the Afternoon of Knowledge led by Dr. Tony Nader. There will also be meetings on Friday evening, all day Saturday and Saturday evening and Sunday morning. You do not need to sign up separately for the Afternoon of Knowledge if you are attending the weekend course.

Q: Should we plan on leaving the course after lunch on Sunday?

A: The course ends officially at 2 pm. Dr. Nader will be hosting a special session on Sunday, April 15 at 3:00 pm. This event will be livestreamed and open to the public. You are more than welcome to attend at no additional charge.

Q: When will I receive the course schedule?

A: During the Friday evening session.

Q: Where will the course be held?

A: All meetings and meals will be at the West Palm Beach Marriott. Because there are limited rooms at the West Palm Beach Marriott, they will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Once those rooms are filled, course participants will be lodged in a nearby hotel at a higher rate.

A: A vegetarian buffet will be served for lunch and dinner with many food options. The hotel offers options for you to purchase breakfast on your own.

Q: Should I bring a Yoga Mat with me for this weekend?

A: We recommend you bring your yoga mat and a small blanket for the Yoga Asanas practice on this course.


Q: What is the cost?

A: In addition to the room and board fee $960 for Adults; $720 for the Second Person in a Couple. Full-time teachers may email to inquire – info@exploretheself.com.

Q: What is the recommended time of meditating before learning an Advanced Technique?

A: Normally the recommended time is two to four months. If you have been meditating for less and wish to receive an advanced technique, please contact us for further information on this point. Email info@exploretheself.com.

Q: What are Advanced Techniques of Transcendental Meditation?

A: Simple techniques that accelerate development of consciousness. During TM, we experience a fourth state of consciousness, a state of restful alertness, which dissolves stress, enhances brain functioning, and balances the body and emotions. The Advanced Techniques speed up the integration of this fourth state; they bring faster results from your regular TM practice.

Q: How many are there?

A: Four — all developed and refined by Maharishi over many years.

Q: Do I learn them all at once or one at a time?

A: One at a time. Typically, an Advanced Technique should be practiced regularly for at least two to four months before adding the next one.

Q: Who can learn, and how do I know if I am ready?

A: If you have been regular with your TM practice for the last two to four months, you are eligible to apply. You do not have to be a long-time or “advanced” meditator to learn an Advanced Technique. Each technique is simple—easy to learn, easy to practice—and, best of all, enjoyable! That said, if you’d like our advice regarding your personal readiness, please email us at info@exploretheself.com.
