    Hi Mike and welcome to the Project Meditation community.

    Yes, Transcendental Meditation can be costly. It's one of those odd things that's happened over the years. TM is a trademarked name for the Transcendental Meditatation Organisation and, when TM first came across to the West it was told that it was available for everybody. In truth, it is available to everybody... if you have very little income then they will charge you based on your available means, but most people see the basic flat rate they now charge ($2000 I assume you are referring to) and think, wow! I cant' afford that!

    The rise in price happened several years ago and many of the TM teachers at the time were not happy about it. As such they left the "organisation" and set themselves up teaching TM under different names, but for a more reasonable price that most people could afford, still taking account of people's means if they really couldn't afford it.

    We are fortunate that Michael, the owner of Project Meditation, offers the very same techniques (without some of the ceremonial stuff) to us all, absolutely free of charge. I myself, learn the same techniques from someone for a small charge, but I was glad to find the Project Meditation community (offering the same techniques) where there are like minded people talking about meditation with great depth and understanding.

    This truly is a good place to be. So once again, Welcome.

    Hugs

    Giles
