A Global Organization
In 2008, we were inspired to create an initiative dedicated to informing women and girls worldwide about the most relevant benefits to them of the Transcendental Meditation program. This initiative forms the basis of the women’s wing of the global Transcendental Meditation program.
While the TM program provides a universal technique for unfolding the full, creative potential of every individual and is taught in the same systematic way to women and men, TM Women Professionals addresses the unique interests of women. This is an exciting time of expansion for our organization, currently offering TM outreach to women and girls in over 60 countries.
TM Women Professionals provides the latest information relevant to women: scientific findings on the TM program, testimonials from women in every field, and the application of TM’s benefits to business, health, education, culture and the arts.
Our organization is a federally recognized non-profit 501(c)(3) educational organization in the USA and a non-profit corporation in Canada. There are no profit distributions of any kind.
The TM technique can only be taught by certified TM teachers who have successfully completed an intensive 5-month in-residence Teacher Training Course. The earnings of most full-time certified TM teachers are less than that of school teachers. In the USA, the organization’s finances are audited annually by an independent CPA firm.

Anita Day Warner
Ms. Warner retired from her position of Vice President of Institutional Fixed Income Sales/Finance at Kidder Peabody in 1994. One of the few women working as a finance professional in the 1970’s, she started at Merrill Lynch in San Francisco as an assistant in commodities. She moved to Kidder Peabody in Philadelphia and then New York City, working in sales with institutional investors in the bond area. Ms.Warner found that her Transcendental Meditation practice enabled her to remain calm and clear- headed in the midst of the highly pressured working environment of an extremely busy trading floor. After the end of a very successful career spanning almost twenty years, Ms. Warner was asked to manage the training program for Kidder’s Institutional Fixed Income Sales and Trading Departments, where she mentored recent graduates who were entering the field of finance. She learned the TM technique in 1971.
