What is Transcendental Meditation?
The Transcendental Meditation® (TM®) technique is a key component of our Consciousness-Based educational approach. It was brought to the West in 1958 by the founder of our university, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, to develop the inner potential of everyone. Our students and faculty practice it for 20 minutes twice daily while sitting comfortably with eyes closed. Visit the worldwide Transcendental Meditation website directory to learn more about this evidence-based technique.

Can I bring my family?
Yes. We recommend, however, waiting a few months to give yourself time to settle into your academic program and find adequate housing for your family. Students who have followed this advice found it made their dependents’ transition to the US much easier.
Your admissions counselor will indicate the documents needed to issue dependent I-20s for your family.
