About the course

TM Together is a grassroots initiative organised by young Meditators, for young Meditators. The goal of TM Together is to bring young Meditators, Sidhas, and TM Teachers together to experience group meditation, profound Maharishi knowledge, and to enjoy the uplifting social connection that follows. 

Usually, these TM Together weekends are independently organised, in-person events across the globe that connect through a virtual global call. This time, the whole weekend is online and organised in collaboration with MERU and IYMC, and we invite you to join us for a relaxed weekend of togetherness, fun, meditation, and knowledge. 

In this online retreat, you will have the opportunity to connect with fellow young Meditators from all over the world from the comfort of your home. Together, we will discuss topics important to young people and enjoy relevant talks from Maharishi. By the end of the weekend, you’ll have inspiration for personal growth and making an impact on the issues that matter to you. 

You’ll also have dedicated time for your TM programme, in order to tend to your self-care and well-being. No matter where you’re from, you’re going to enjoy this time relaxing with other Meditators from your generation.

Guidance from Dr Peter Warburton

To kick off the weekend, we will be joined by Dr Peter Warburton (also known as Raja Peter) offering us guidance for the retreat, with special programme instructions.

Raja Peter hosts an annual 10-day International Young Meditators’ Course (IYMC), a longer in-residence rounding course for young TM Meditators from all over the world.

As the pandemic has made an in-person course impossible, Raja Peter extends an invitation to all previous participants of the IYMC and TM Together, as well as to young people who have not yet had an opportunity to attend a rounding course, to attend this special online retreat. TM Together is not only a perfect first TM retreat but a fantastic way to connect with fellow young Meditators.

The MERU Course Office itself is made up of young TM Meditators, Sidhas, and TM Teachers. We know exactly what makes TM Together special and we want to replicate the warm and friendly atmosphere at in-person TM Together and IYMC events. That’s why our TM Together knowledge meetings will be led by younger TM Teachers, and the knowledge and discussions will be relevant and accessible.

Group meditation

What better way to feel connected with other Meditators than to participate in group meditations? Online group meditations will enable us to enjoy the warmth and coherence of the young TM community even while we are all around the globe.
