The Maharishi Foundation
A registered UK charity
Under the guidance of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the Maharishi Foundation is the only source of courses in Transcendental Meditation in the UK. No other organisation in the UK offers these courses, based on the teaching of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
The Maharishi Foundation was established as an educational charity in 1975.
The aim of the charity is to advance the education of the public by offering courses and services of the highest quality to develop the full mental and creative potential of the individual.
The foundation offers courses in Transcendental Meditation, founded by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, as well as advanced techniques and knowledge programmes. Maharishi Foundation is the only official organisation to offer these courses in the UK.
The Maharishi Foundation widely publicises its services to inform the public about the benefits of Transcendental Meditation and maintains about 60 local centres run by qualified teachers.
Why insist on Maharishi Foundation® Teachers?
Approved Teachers have been certified by Maharishi Vedic Institute®, a professional self-regulating body that maintains the standards of teaching throughout the UK.
Transcendental Meditation has been taught in the UK since 1959 when Maharishi Mahesh Yogi first visited the country. Maharishi Foundation in the UK is affiliated to a worldwide network of non-profit organisations authorised by Maharishi to train and certify teachers.
Maharishi Foundation not only provides courses to learn Transcendental Meditation but also a complete multi-year follow-up programme with a full range of advanced techniques and courses designed by Maharishi for the fullest possible development of consciousness. No other organisation or individual in the UK is authorised to teach Transcendental Meditation, the Advanced Techniques of Transcendental Meditation, and the TM-Sidhi Programme, founded by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
