I had such high hopes for TM and was so disappointed with my experience. The "training" felt rushed and impersonal. I feel unsupported and cannot believe I spent such a substantial about of money on this.

I have been meditating for 2 weeks now after learning the technique.
I see very subtle changes. Feel very positive overall... especially with my memory!
Emily is a exceptional teacher!
I really enjoyed learning to meditate from her.
I am committed to continue my practice!

So far, it isn't working. Debbie told me my mind would wander and you just slowly go back to your word. My mind wanders constantly and I don't feel relaxed when I am done. I am really disappointed because I was really counting on this to help me relax and become calm. I even thought after I mastered this, I could maybe become an instructor. Would someone please contact me? You can email me with a phone number or you can call me at 402-980-0502 or email me at I had a follow up appt I was unable to make because I had the flu but this was after the 4 days we spent together. I was also told this was guaranteed and I it isn't working for me as of now.
Thank you

Was not worth money. Minimal instruction incremental to what can be googled

That was supposed to be five stars. We have both enjoyed our TM sessions and benefitted from private sessions. Instructor is helpful and encouraging.

I am having trouble getting my second meditation in. I also can't stop my mind from chattering.

Rober, my coach is a very nice person and is trying to help. He is still responding with me. At this point the meditation has not helped me. My anxiety has gotten worse since starting and I acquired a new problem of not being able to sleep. It did give me more energy than I had before.

I am sickened that you would all charge so much for an absolute waste of my time. I am genuinely disgusted and seriously question your entire organization. I had high hopes and they were completely crushed.
After speaking to other friends who often practice meditation they were all aware of TM ripping people off, just wish I questioned it more before I began. No worries though, I'll be sure to spread the word.

heavy sales pitch don't waste your money

Hi Laura,

It sounds like your experience with the TM technique isn’t living up to your expectations and I'm very sorry to hear that! Sometimes it takes longer to feel the benefits and regular practice is key. You might also benefit from some follow-up sessions with your TM teacher.

All that being said, we do offer a satisfaction guarantee, and if you’d like to take us up on that offer, your TM teacher will be happy to help you with that as well.

Was on board until the final day of training when my graduation packet was tantamount to a catalog of TM related packets—was even told further courses could “fast track enlightenment.” Could be good, but ultimately felt like I was sold snake oil
