TM Courses for Business
is the most effective stress-management programme, and therefore normally allowable against business tax. Rather than tackling work-practice problems, which are a separate issue (which of course needs to be dealt with!), it tackles the stress itself, which is entirely within the employees who are finding their work ‘stressful’. The employee then changes from becoming ‘part of the problem’ to being part of the solution.
Peak Performance without stress
It provides a whole range of powerful benefits both for the Company and for the employee’s private life, making it something that employees continue to practice for years after the course. Many company owners have reported that the TM course is the first they have experienced where the effects increase with time rather than reduce. It has been used by major companies all over the world, some being so delighted with the results that they have provided a dedicated room for meditation, often in company time.
The Meditation Trust offers in-house or retreat courses together with extra support and guidance for participants and a schedule to fit in with your requirements. The course fee is usually £4900 , which covers up to 16 participants, so potentially costing around £306 each. However this cost is negotiable for smaller local businesses. The Trust will also charge for reasonable travel and accommodation expenses by agreement.
Benefits indicated by research include:
For the Company:
Reduced absenteeism and increased profits
Increased productivity, improved work relationships and health amongst employees
For the Employee:
- Job Satisfaction
- Job Performance
- Energy & Stamina
- Mental Health
- Physical Health
All of the benefits that we see occurring within and between individuals from the practice of TM cannot help but create benefits within the workplace. People of all professions rediscover their natural ability to remain calm under pressure, free from tension and fatigue and at the peak of their mental clarity and performance, which has encouraged companies such as Sony, General Motors, IBM and Toyota to make Transcendental Meditation available to their staff.
“Having a stressful job I realised I had to do something…for me, TM has been exceedingly useful. I can work much more effectively when I practise regularly….and I find I have more time for family and leisure.” Dr Thomas Setterfield, GP
Research specifically in workplace settings has indicated that TM practice within organisations can significantly improve relationships with supervisors and co-workers, increase job satisfaction, performance and productivity, reduce job related worry and tension, and improve ability to make decisions. These benefits have been found in employees at every level of the organisation (e.g. Academy of Management Journal, 1974)
Employees practicing TM have also shown significantly greater improvements than matched control subjects on general health and reductions in physiological arousal, anxiety, job tension, insomnia, fatigue, and consumption of cigarettes and alcohol (Anxiety,Stress, and Coping, 1993).

“I was introduced to Transcendental Meditation (TM) by an American whom I considered the most dynamic company director I’ve ever met. I went up to him after a speech he’d given one afternoon and asked him about the latest American management technique hoping to find some secrets of his success. “Transcendental Meditation,” was his reply, “that’s all you need, forget the rest.”
