The New Zealand Peace Community is located in Silverdale, 25 miles north of downtown Auckland, and consists of eight hectares (20 acres) of land so far. Development began in 2002 with the Maharishi Spiritual Capital of New Zealand, a 375 square meter (4036 square foot) building housing the National Center for the Transcendental Meditation program in New Zealand, as well as its administrative offices.
Please see Part I of this article. All the buildings, and the site as a whole, have been designed according to Maharishi Vastu*—Vedic architecture and city planning.
The first residence was also built in 2002—a 130 sm (1400 SF) single family home. The land is being developed thoughtfully, with two more single family residences added in 2009 and a small cabin in 2008. The biggest expansion is the addition of a 10 room guest residence of 250 sm (2690 SF), just completed.
Approval has been given for seven more single family homes, an additional five cabins, another guest residence, a dining facility, and a health spa/clinic on the site.
One of the residents, Laura Treadwell, echoes the thoughts of others around the world who have chosen to move into a Maharishi Vastu village after living in a more urban area.
''Initially I was reluctant to move away from Auckland to come and live here, but living in a Maharishi Vastu house we have seen so many changes in our lives. There is an intangible level of happiness overall, much greater than experienced before. Also, I am having more success in activities, and health has seen a definite improvement. It's lovely living close by to friends . . . —having the privacy of one's own home and garden, but feeling surrounded by warmth and companionship. It's really nice living in the country also, hearing the bird sounds all day, and seeing the birds becoming friendlier every day.''

'What may seem intangible to begin with becomes completely concrete as one continues to live in Maharishi Vastu,' comments an expert architect in Maharishi Vastu architecture. 'The nourishing influence of protection and abundance in all aspects of life continues to grow and flourish in the lives of those who live there.'
For those who might be motivated to explore Maharishi Vastu in New Zealand, the residential building can accommodate short term stays.
