The central component of Consciousness-Based Education is the Transcendental Meditation technique.
In the CBE programme, students and teachers practice the Transcendental Meditation technique 15 to 20 minutes twice daily, sitting comfortably with eyes closed. This simple, natural, effortless technique settles the mind and body to a unique state of restful alertness, allowing the mind to naturally experience the level of its own full potential, Transcendental Consciousness. Every aspect of life benefits from this fundamental experience.
The scientific research on the Transcendental Meditation programme and TM-Sidhi's have been verified by more than 600 scientific research studies conducted over the last 35 years at over 250 independent universities and research institutions in 33 countries. This research has been collected into seven volumes of more than 6,000 pages.
