On the first leg of his 14-country tour of Africa, Dr Bevan Morris, President of Maharishi University of Management in the USA, reported 6 February from Togo in West Africa. The tour is part of the Golden Jubilee celebration of 50 years of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's programmes in Africa.

Starting 25 January in Ghana, continuing in Côte d'Ivoire and Togo, and later this week in Senegal, Dr Morris has been presenting to West African leaders in education and other fields, Maharishi's programmes for Consciousness-Based Education, reducing individual and social stress, and creating social coherence.
These and other programmes are the core of Maharishi's offer to every nation to rise above suffering, conflict, poverty, and disease and achieve an invincible state of permanent peace, harmony, and progress.
Dr Morris's visit and presentations have been warmly received in each country. Using compelling PowerPoint presentations he describes scientific research documenting total brain development, increased creativity, and improved academic achievement through the Transcendental Meditation Programme. Consciousness-Based Education has been successfully applied in many countries including the UK, where the British government has authorized Maharishi School to be among the country's first Free Schools; in Uganda at Maharishi Secondary School for Girls; and the great response in India.
Dr Morris also highlights the impressive achievements of Maharishi University of Management and Maharishi School in Fairfield, Iowa—pioneering institutions of Consciousness-Based Education in the world.
A key point Dr Morris is presenting in each country is the role of Consciousness-Based Education in creating coherence and harmony in national consciousness, through groups of students practising Transcendental Meditation and its advanced techniques including Yogic Flying. This is an important component in the implementation of Consciousness-Based technologies in schools across Latin America, as well as in military and security forces.
He also describes how former President Chissano of Mozambique employed a similar programme of Invincible Defence Technology through advanced meditation groups in the military, which he credits with having ended civil war and bringing peace and prosperity to the country.
In addition, short videos show President Chissano's address to the 2010 Gotabgaa conference of Kenyans in Washington, DC; a recent interview by Dr Mehmet Oz with Oprah Winfrey, who learned Transcendental Meditation last year and visited MUM; and American TV news programmes on Consciousness-Based Education.
The presentations have inspired very positive responses. 'We find openness in these nations, really on a different plateau than anywhere in the past,' Dr Morris commented. 'Within 15-20 minutes people grasp what Maharishi's programmes are offering' to help their nations, a great opportunity to rise out of difficulties through Maharishi's programmes for the invincibility of the nation.
A conference of education leaders was held in Accra, Ghana, which was featured in a radio broadcast and reported in the press, generating much public interest.
Also in Ghana, Dr Morris and others travelled to meet with traditional leaders in the country, who were deeply appreciative of Maharishi's programmes.
Dr Morris also commented that the three countries he has visited so far are beautiful tropical countries, and that the people are extremely kind and sweet—'a beautiful part of the world that will rise rapidly in enlightenment and invincibility'.
'I feel very grateful for the chance to come to Africa,' he said, 'to honour the laws of nature of these parts of the world, and see the blossoming of the unity at the basis of all the diversity of Africa and the world through Maharishi's knowledge and programmes.'
