In doing so, the person uses the natural tendency of the mind to move effortlessly in a more fulfilling direction to transcend spontaneously. This specific TM’s mental technique provides the body with profound relaxation that can be, according to the metabolism, up to twice as deep as in the state of deep sleep.
