Oprah Winfrey about TM: “I’m a 1000% better person if I do this”
In this interview with Dr. Oz, Oprah talks about how she learned Transcendental Meditation, how she paid the TM course fee for all 400 employees in her company, and the changes it has brought.
“9:00 in the morning, and 4:30 in the afternoon no matter what is going on, we stop and we meditate,” says Winfrey, ”And you can’t imagine what has happened in the company, people who used to have migraines, don’t. People are sleeping better, they are having better relationships and they are interacting with other people better. It’s been fantastic.” About herself, she says that she becomes a 1000% better person if, through TM, she bring herself in touch with something greater than herself.
Oprah came in contact with TM when she made a documentary about the TM community in Fairfield, Iowa, USA. The 45-minute documentary showed an enthusiastic Oprah clearly impressed by the whole community, which is famous for its low crime rate, the exceptional achievements of the Maharishi School, the advanced green technologies, a passion for healthy lifestyles, healthy food, healthy home design, and extraordinary entrepreneurship. Fairfield has been recognized as one of the most successful small business communities in the USA.

What people are saying*
I have done so many meditation courses, but there was always something that felt not right; I missed something. I did not feel satisfied. When I learned TM, it felt just like coming home to me. Finally I have found it.
This technique is truly one of a kind.
I am meditating now for almost 30 years and my general health is excellent, especially when compared to my peers. Not only did it make my creativity grow remarkably, but also my ability to deal with a team of employees and actors in an inspiring and stimulating way.
I am still amazed on a daily basis to see how such a simple, natural technique can generate so many positive effects. And it is also nice to do.
