Get the book.

No ONE wants to know the ultimate TRUTH, as soon as YOU find IT out, YOU want to forget IT.

You are everything's way of feeling itself.

That sounds like a rip off new-age institution. Anyone who loves you will tell you the truth for free. And even if you don't have anyone to tell it to you, you can get a book or read up on it on the internet for way cheaper!

Don't give those fucks your money!

TM is a sorta brand-name medic=tation ssystem mass-marketed by his holiness the maharishi mahesh yogi, beginning in a big way in the 60s with the likes of the beatles, mia farrow, donovan, paul horn, the beach boys, charles lloyd...
the teacher was originally a physics professor in india, and studied under a guru before taking his version out to the world (the maharishi (= "great teacher") was a guest on johnny carson's "tonight" show! he mostly giggled in a blissed-out guru-high, hehheh...)

it is derived from hindu meditation traditions - you are given a "personal mantra" (the TM folks try to pick out a mantra suited to you from maybe a dozen or two matras for chanting & meditating with...)

there are indeed many many books on "how to" meditate...
do you need a teacher to teach you to follow your breath & focus on your "given" mantra?
but there are many mantras that are available to the seeker (for no charge :wink: ) & a quiet place to sit can be found if desired...
the discipline to "do the work" (even if the way is wu wei, heh...) - well, that cannot be purchased now, can it?

if it's books or websites or speccific methods or...
poke around here, at some of the other entheogen & mind sciences websites, ummmm utfse, etc...

old enough to know better
not old enough to care

Most meditation practices are beneficial. Just buy some books and read them, practice their techniques. Do not spend $2500 for a seminar on TM. For $2500 you could probably fly to Tibet (or wherever you like) and find a guru for yourself.
