128 | NAILS MAGAZINE | MARCH 2015 children do it easily. Anyone who can think a thought and follow the simplest of instructions can easily learn and enjoy TM. What does your organization do and what is the frst step for readers who are interested in learning more about TM and whether it's for them? Hoffman: The goal of the Transcendental Meditation Program for Women is to eliminate mental, physical, and emotional suffering so that all women and girls can live their birthright — happiness, fulfllment, and achievement. The TM Program for Women Professionals brings these benefts to women both in their personal life and in their career. Businesses that offer their employees instruction by TM teachers reap the rewards. Most of the TM course can even be taught at the salon. We invite women business owners to contact us whether they are interested just for themselves or wish to make the TM program available to employees. We can arrange for a teacher to give presentations to the staff of a salon and can even offer a course discount for a group of staff and nail salon client referrals. Go to for more information. You can contact Hoffman at (800) 635-7173 or at jhoffman@tm-org to arrange for a presentation. Do people fnd the benefts are more mental or physical — or spiritual, for that matter? Hoffman: Different women may notice differing results at frst — for example, some notice they are less anxious, depressed, or impatient, while some notice more energy, focus, and mental clarity. As a woman continues to do the TM technique, over the months and years a broad range of benefts are experienced in all areas of mind, body, emotions, and spirituality. The settling of the mind to inner silence during TM enables a woman to maintain balance, composure, and inner peace in her life, while the deep rest during TM slows the aging process and reduces her stress and the occurrence of stress-related diseases including hypertension and heart disease. More than 360 peer-reviewed published scientifc studies have verifed the wide variety of TM's benefts. What do you tell someone who is convinced she can't meditate? Hoffman: That person probably thinks she will not be able to meditate because she believes the technique will involve concentration — trying to stop her mind from thinking. Concentration meditation techniques can actually increase trait anxiety.
