Privacy Policy

Your personal information

The information you provide Maharishi Foundation® through its authorised representatives is used only to inform you about Transcendental Meditation® (TM) and services directly relating to it.

Basic details of when and where you learned TM are shared with our International Course Office based in The Netherlands in order only that they can verify that you have learned TM, when needed.


You may receive mailings, according to your stated preferences and interests, from two retreat facilities about TM-related courses, and from our national office about other events relating to TM and its advanced programmes, only.

You may unsubscribe from any electronic mailing by clicking the “unsubscribe” link in the footer of that mailing. You will be presented with various subscription options. You may opt to receive communications, e.g., only from your closest retreat venue. A personalised web page enables you to do that, and also to update your contact details. For a link to this page – or explicitly to request mailings about other programmes from the same origins as TM, such as Ayurvedic healthcare or Vedic architecture, to be provided with a copy of your data that we hold and of your consent, or to withdraw your consent at any time – contact

You may unsubscribe from any postal mailing by writing to Maharishi Foundation at the address below.

Communications are not sent to individuals under 18 years of age.

While we endeavour to effect changes instantly, there can sometimes be a delay of a few days for all mailing lists to be updated.


Any complaints or requests for removal or disclosure of your data from our records should also be addressed to Maharishi Foundation at the address below. Unsubscribing alone will leave your course attendance details on file as a permanent record of your TM qualifications. These would be deleted only upon your explicit request, after which we cannot be held responsible for verifying your TM training in the event you ever wanted to take related courses in the UK or elsewhere. In the event of requests not being met satisfactorily, you can contact the Information Commissioner’s Office:

Data Security

We take all reasonable steps – such as encrypted database technology – to maintain the security and integrity of your personal information and to protect your personal information from misuse, interference, loss and unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. In the event that tracking codes or cookies are used, these will be fully explained on the relevant websites. In the unlikely event of a breach in data security coming to our attention that may compromise rights and freedoms of individuals, the Information Commissioner’s Office will be notified.
