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.

A: You should plan to arrive on Friday afternoon. The first meeting will be on Friday evening. There will then be meetings on Saturday morning, afternoon and evening and on Sunday morning. The course will officially end on Sunday after lunch.

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

A: The course ends officially at 1 pm. Dr. Nader will be hosting a special session on Sunday, October 7 at 2:00 pm. This event will be livestreamed and open to the public. You are more than welcome to attend at no additional charge.

Q: What is the cost?

A: In addition to room and board fee, the fee for Advanced Techniques is 600 € for Adults, 400 € for students and 900 € for Couples.

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

A: Normally the recommended time is two to four months.

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!

Q: How do we sign up?

A: In the application form when asked “Do you want to apply to receive an Advanced Technique on this course?” Make sure to say yes by ticking the appropriate circle and we’ll send you the information of how to make the payment.
