Interest in the Transcendental Meditation programme has been rising steadily in New Zealand. Martin Davy, director of the programme in the country, explained that he and his wife recently opened a new Maharishi Invincibility Centre, a teaching centre for Transcendental Meditation, where people can go to learn about the stress-reducing meditation technique and take a course of instruction.
With this new centre in Wellington, New Zealand's capital, there are now three Maharishi Invincibility Centres across the small country. The other two are in Auckland and in the Maharishi Spiritual Capital of New Zealand, a development near the Pacific Ocean.
Two of the three centres are designed according to the ancient principles of Maharishi Vastu architecture, which seeks to align buildings with the laws of nature. The centre in Wellington, a city with a lot of interest in Transcendental Meditation, is aligned with the cardinal directions, one of the main principles of Vastu. Mr Davy hopes to move the centre into a perfect Vastu building in a neighborhood with six other Vastu structures soon.
The centre is very active, he said, adding that a number of people have been coming in to learn Transcendental Meditation from a local company acclaimed for its special effects production in the world of film and television.
Among New Zealanders already practising Transcendental Meditation, interest is also increasing in its advanced programmes, which are designed to accelerate the benefits brought by daily practice.
New Zealand is set to have a course in the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme next summer, the first in over a decade. Group practice of this advanced technology of consciousness has been shown through scientific research to reduce crime and violence and create coherence and harmony in society, and Mr Davy looks forward to having a new training course every year.
