Have you ever tried to meditate, and found you couldn’t do it because your mind is too active — or maybe the technique was uncomfortable in some way? It’s a common experience because almost all techniques involve some kind of control or focus. This is what makes the TM technique completely different — it’s so easy and enjoyable that anyone can do it, even children with ADHD.
- No concentrating or focusing
- No control of the mind
- No mindfulness (monitoring of thoughts)
- No trying to “empty the mind”
