During a tour of European countries, Dr Ashley Deans, Global Ambassador of Consciousness-Based Education, visited Sweden, Switzerland, Serbia, and Macedonia, where he spoke to educators and students on the benefits of the Transcendental Meditation Programme for schools. Dr Deans recently reported on the tour, which took place in autumn 2010.
In Sweden, Dr Deans presented at both a technical high school and a university in the city of Malmö. Students, faculty, and staff at these institutions showed great receptivity to the idea of Consciousness-Based Education. 'At these schools I was met with deep understanding that there is something missing from education—something needed to develop the full creative potential of the individual,' expressed Dr Deans.
In Switzerland, he held a successful meeting with the principal and faculty of a private international school. Traveling on to Serbia, he spoke to directors of an art school in Belgrade, who were familiar with Consciousness-Based Education through the work of filmmaker David Lynch, and were eager to take preliminary steps in implementing the programme.
Interest in Consciousness-Based Education has been rising in Macedonia. The mayor of one city has been working to make land available for the construction of Maharishi Central University in Europe. Dr Deans met with the mayor as well as the president of an international university in the area. In another small town in Macedonia, students have already begun learning Transcendental Meditation in the wake of Dr Deans' visit. 'Young people in Macedonia are excited to be on the cutting edge of technology, and this includes Maharishi's technologies of consciousness,' commented Dr Deans.
