Several hundred thousand people tuned in 25 March to watch the one-hour special on the Transcendental Meditation program and its application in different areas of life.

The show—titled 'America's Most Unusual Town'—follows Oprah Winfrey through a very full day in Fairfield and Maharishi Vedic City, Iowa, USA—'one of the safest, greenest and most unusual communities in America. It's the last place you'd expect to find two huge, golden domes where thousands practice the Transcendental Meditation technique twice a day.'

The show resulted in hundreds of thousands across the country visiting the website and thousands signing up to learn at local TM centres.

After filming segments at Maharishi School and in the Fairfield and Maharishi Vedic City communities, Oprah—who learned Transcendental Meditation last summer—joined 'housewives, engineers, waitresses, lawyers, moms and single women at the Golden Dome of Pure Knowledge for evening meditation—a powerful, energizing, yet calming experience', she wrote in the February issue of 'O' magazine: 'What Oprah knows for sure about finding the fullest expression of yourself'.

Describing how she felt as she left the Dome after this meditation session, Oprah said, 'I walked away feeling fuller than when I came in, full of hope and a sense of contentment and deep joy—knowing for sure that in the craziness of the world that seems to bombard us at every angle, there is always the consistency of stillness.'
