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. Details will be announced shortly of the UK tour in late February 2018 of David Lynch Foundation CEO, Bob Roth, who has been instrumental in bringing the benefits of Transcendental Meditation to many thousands of people in disadvantaged sectors of society.

On 19 September 2017, we were delighted to welcome back to London Dr Norman Rosenthal, who is a world expert on the medical benefits of Transcendental Meditation, and the author of several bestsellers including Transcendence and Super Mind. Norman became famous when he discovered Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and helped develop light therapy.

Dr Rosenthal interviewed three special guests who have experienced remarkable creativity since learning TM:

  • RenĂ©e Elliott founder of Planet Organic, Britain's first organic supermarket chain.
  • Chelsey Baker award-winning business mentor and founder of National Mentoring Day.
  • John Purkiss, author of Brand You and The Power of Letting Go.

In April 2017, Maharishi Foundation hosted the Second International Ayurveda Congress, in London. A public health fair, Ayurveda for Everyone, was also hosted alongside the Congress.
