"Nothing has ever opened my eyes like transcendental meditation has. It makes me calm and happy, and, well, it gives me some peace and quiet in what’s a pretty chaotic life!" ~ Hugh Jackman

George Stephanopolis on GMA:

“We’re all here because we all have something in common—we all practice Transcendental Meditation. … I think that people don’t really understand exactly what it is and what a difference it has made in people’s lives.”

Jerry Seinfeld on “Good Morning America”

“It’s very hard to explain. … I was describing it to somebody. I was saying it’s like having you know how your phone has a charger—it’s like having a charger for your whole body and mind. That’s what TM is.”

Liv Tyler, actress and model, learned the Transcendental Meditation technique in NYC from her teacher, Janet Hoffman, the Executive Director of the TM program for Women Professionals.

At a December event in NYC, Liv said, "Meditation and being close to yourself helps everything in your life,,, it helps me make better decisions and be a better mother, and just deal with the daily stress of the modern world that we live in. It helps with everything...."

Ellen DeGeneres on Transcendental Meditation (TM):

“There’s something about TM. It’s the only time I have that stillness. I open my eyes and I’m sad that it’s 20 minutes later. It gives me this peaceful feeling—I just love it so much. You achieve all the benefits from just sitting still and going within."

Candy Crowley on TM: "My TM [Transcendental Meditation] experience started right after the last election. Campaigns are just so hard on everything. You’re on the bus, you’re off the bus, you’re on the plane, you’re in a hotel. And that’s really your life: You think you’re not going to eat and then you eat too much, or you think you are going to eat and you don’t eat enough. You’re just so stressed out and tired. ...

... I just sit in a chair in my room. I meditate in the airport. I meditate in my office in the afternoon. It doesn’t require a special place or even a lack of people. ... I think that it has made my thought process more ordered. When your stress level is lower, you make better decisions and you have a better thought process. Do I still get angry? I do. Do I still get frustrated? I do. Do I still have stress? Yes. I don’t think that’s the point; the point is for you to be able to handle the stress. The point is that I don’t hang onto my anger nearly as long as I used to. It just takes the harsh edges of life and softens them up in a way that you can cope with them."
