The first Maharishi Peace Palace in Europe, located in Erfurt, Germany, has already hosted many courses and lectures.
A Peace Palace is a centre that offers knowledge and practical programmes to promote peace, prosperity, perfect health, and enlightenment for individuals, the community, and the nation, based on technologies of consciousness brought to light by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Transcendental Meditation programme.
According to Dr Eckart Stein, director of the Peace Palace and one of the project leaders for its recently completed construction, many courses have already been held in the centre since its opening last October.
Those courses include those focused on Transcendental Meditation, the advanced Transcendental Meditation Sidhi programme, human physiology as the expression of Veda and the Vedic literature, Maharishi Ayurveda pulse reading for good health, Ayurvedic cooking, and classical Indian music featuring experts on the sitar and tabla.
In addition to these courses which are mainly attended by people already practising Transcendental Meditation, Dr Stein said, the Peace Palace holds lectures and events for the general public as well.
Recently, the Peace Palace set up a booth in a health fair in Erfurt, the biggest of its kind in the state of Thuringia. 'There we announced that our centre is now open and we also announced two big events,' said Dr Stein.
The first big event was the visit of American brain research expert Dr Fred Travis, who lectured on Transcendental Meditation and higher states of consciousness.
'As a result of the fair we had a full house for the public lecture of Dr Fred Travis,' Dr Stein said. 'He was giving a lecture called ''Beyond waking, dreaming, and sleeping: Meditation and brain research''.'
Dr Stein added that the experience of higher states of consciousness can be measured directly by alpha brain wave activity and by observing brain coherence. 'This was demonstrated live at [Dr Travis's] lecture.'
The second event was the arrival of a Vaidya (expert Ayurvedic physician) from the renowned Maharishi Ayurveda Health Centre in Bad Ems, Germany. The Vaidya came to Erfurt to give consultations and a public lecture on Maharishi Ayurveda. News of his arrival was welcome at the fair and almost all his consultations were quickly booked.
