TM Meditation Frequently Asked Questions

Natural Stress Relief

  • Is the N.S.R. a meditation technique?

    It derives from yoga meditation exercises. However it has demostrated to be 3 to 4 times more effective than most common meditation techniques. It is also simpler than most of them.

  • Is this technique related to Maharishi's TM meditation?

    The creator of this technique, R.Harrison, is a former TM teacher. He developed this technique with F.Coppola, a TM practitioner since 1983. The Natural Stress Relief technique is very similar to the original Maharishi's TM technique (1958) and achieves the same remarkable results (as TM). However, this technique is even simpler than TM and can be learned at home with a simple manual and CD.

  • The first session went well with the audio, experiencing body tingling and movement, but the second session without audio had no body sensations and more interference with internal thoughts and outside noise. Am I doing wrong?

    The effects you may feel during the practice can be different from time to time. The results you are getting without the audio file are still valid and normal. If you think that the sessions you made with the audio file are more powerful, you can do them sometimes, when you want (however, this will take a longer time).

  • I just experienced my first session with the learn audio. I experienced weird sensations in my brain that I have never experienced before... They felt like sort of a massage maybe... What is happening to my brain to cause this feeling?

    There are several effects that you may feel (during a session) in the brain, in the nervous system, or even in muscles. This is different for different persons and it is different from time to time. The effect you report is probably due to release of tensions. After effects like these, you probably feel better during your daily life.

  • I purchased your product because it was very similar to Chopras Primordial Sound meditation and Maharishis TM meditation, but much less expensive. How similar is your method to the other two methods? Suppose I decided to come up with the $2,500 and learn TM from a qualified teacher. Would I be learning anything different or better than what I am doing with your product?

    This technique is almost identical to Maharishi's TM, even though a single "syllable" for everybody is given, instead of a personal "syllable". Our own syllable has never been used in TM, so there are no copyright problems (other differences between our method and TM are: the duration of the sessions; and the way of learning the technique). Our syllable has been accurately chosen: research has shown that there is no difference from TM about the real effects that we achieve, and this was our purpose in creating this technique. So the use of "personal" syllables in TM seems to be a marketing trick. Chopra's technique is also similar to TM, but a long Sanskrit phrase is used instead of a single syllable. Research has shown that a phrase is not better than a syllable. If you decide to spend a lot of money to learn TM (that is 1800 Euro in Europe, and $2500 or so in the USA), you will receive personal support for a few days, but the real technique is almost the same (even though TM teachers will tell you that an effective technique can't be learned through a manual and a CD).

  • I have found that I my golf game has improved considerably since using this technique. I play especially well if I play directly after I do a session. However, after a few holes this state wears off and I get slightly more tense and worse. There is a lot of time in between shots, and I was wondering if I may use the syllable as I am walking in between shots.

    It is not recommended you practice this technique while walking! If you have enough time, try to do short session (5 minutes), of course while sitting with your eyes closed. Otherwise, you may do simple "pranayama" exercises (respiration) that you can learn for free on the Internet or anywhere.

  • The recommended time spend is 2 times per day for about 10 or 15 minutes each. Is it more beneficial to practice 3-4 times per day, or even more than 3-4 times per day?

    It is not recommended to practice this technique too much, since it may cause a mental state that may be too far away from the normal awake state that is needed for daily life. In scientific terms, the brain tends to stay too much on the low Alpha waves (around 9 Hertz) rather than on the Beta waves (around 20 Hertz or more) that is needed in daily life. When you are in vacation/holiday, you may practise the technique 3 or even 4 times a day. The same applies if you happen to be ill (however, illness should be rare if you practise this technique regularly).

  • Ive started using your programme, second lesson this morning. I notice when Im thinking my syllable that my tongue is trying to say it with me and Im wondering if I should try using one of the other syllables that I read on the manual as I seem to action these in my mind easier without my tongue trying to move. Does it matter if I try either of these instead?

    There is not a remarkable difference between these syllables, as shown by our tests, even though TM teachers are trained to say that different mantras cause very different effects. The real difference between this technique and other meditation techniques is how the syllable is used... that is paradoxically simpler than most meditation techniques! This method achieves better results.

  • Im looking forward to learning this and progressing through the sessions as I do have hight blood pressure and want to move away from using pharmacy pills as a option. Will I achieve good results?

    This is not the best field where this technique has shown to be effective, however there are often good results in this field, too.

  • The basis goal of TM is to access subtler levels of thought, and ultimately transcending the most subtle level of though and arrive at pure consciousness or pure being. Actually your product moves my mind into subtler levels of thought. Another goal of TM is to reach enlightenment, or higher states of consciousness. Your program just advertises mental and physical health improvements, but is enlightenment a possible effect of your meditation technique?

    This is possible on the long run. Do a "silent" week-end every 2 or 3 months, with several long sessions (total time = twice the regular time) and yoga postures. With other practitioners, it is even better. The effects are exactly like TM.

  • I have been doing some research on TM and Primordial Sound meditation. I came across your site, but am hesitant to give my credit card number over this site.

    Credit Card orders for this site are processed by in the USA by or by, that are well known and reliable. Otherwise you may try a money transfer to Italy, but this will cost you more money, probably.

  • After being made aware of the astronomical costs of the other meditations, your program is seems to be the most beneficial. However, I have been unable to find any other independent sources of information regarding your Natural Stress Relief program.

    At this time you can find information in Italian.
