A Q&A with Bob Roth, our CEO

TM is a simple, natural, effortless technique practiced for 20 minutes, twice a day, while sitting comfortably with the eyes closed. It allows the active thinking mind to settle inward to experience a naturally calm, peaceful level of awareness while the body gains profound rest.
