Maharishi Foundation

UK charity

Maharishi Foundation, a registered educational charity, aims to provide education for the public to develop their full mental and creative potential, through courses including Transcendental Meditation and its advanced techniques. No other organisation in the UK offers courses in Transcendental Meditation, as taught by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

Our Founder

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi is best known for the revival of the simple, non-religious, scientifically verified technique of Transcendental Meditation. The knowledge of Transcendental Meditation has, for centuries, been preserved by the Vedic tradition of India, the world's oldest tradition of knowledge. Maharishi received the technique from his teacher with whom he studied for many years, before inaugurating a worldwide organisation in 1957 to make the knowledge of Transcendental Meditation available around the world.

Upcoming events

From time to time, Maharishi Foundation hosts special events in the UK, for the public and for specialist audiences.

On 1-2 April 2017, Maharishi Foundation is hosting the Second International Ayurveda Congress, in London. A public health fair, Ayurveda for Everyone [link to Health Fair pages], is also being hosted alongside the Congress.

The Congress will bring together the largest gathering of experts in Ayurvedic medicine outside of India. The Congress will be attended by His Excellency, Shripad Yesso Naik, Minister of AYUSH, Government of India, and other health leaders from around the world.

At the Health Fair, experts in Ayurveda will share simple health secrets with the public, such as how to enjoy deep refreshing sleep, banish anxiety and depression, and keep the heart healthy. Exhibitors include leading Ayurvedic institutions and producers of authentic Ayurvedic products and medicines, and they will be offering expert advice, sample treatments, skin care and beauty products among other things.
