Meet the Certified Teachers in So. Florida

Meditation instruction in TSM is something that is good for all people regardless of one's background, interests, ethnicity or religion. While any meditation is good meditation, we believe this technique is easier, deeper and more reliable than most other meditation practices available today. Taught in a standardized manner throughout the world, this simple, mental technique of meditation provides years of value with a relatively inexpensive, one-time course fee. There are no hidden costs or strict cult-like policies to follow.
