A new minor in Physiology and Health to be offered next spring opens the door for all students and the community to gain the knowledge and techniques to achieve perfect health.
The inspiration for the new minor came from several areas. Many students requested courses to help them take care of their health without going through the whole B.A. program in Physiology and Health.
'The goal of Maharishi Consciousness-Based Health Care is not the absence of disease; it's the development of enlightenment,' said Paul Morehead, associate chair. 'Without enlightenment, there is no relief from suffering at all. That's what we're all here for.'
Additionally the University wanted everyone to have the knowledge of Maharishi Consciousness-Based Health Care as a technique for achieving higher states of consciousness. 'I want to emphasize that we have so much knowledge about how to create perfect health and the development of higher states of consciousness,' Mr. Morehead said. 'We'd like to share this knowledge with everyone.'
The final catalyst for the minor came when there was a restructuring of the Physiology and Health program. The clinical component has been put on hold, paving the way for fewer restrictions on entry into the courses.
There are now twelve courses in the major and any five of those constitute a minor. Courses will be available through three modules with the first module offered next spring covering Discovery of Veda in Human Physiology. The second module next fall offers courses in diet and digestion, pulse reading, Maharishi Yoga(SM) asanas, and prevention. The spring 2006 module plans to teach health courses and how to be a health educator, which will include knowledge of disorders and treatments for disorders.
Some courses have prerequisites, but there will still be a wide choice. The Town Super Radiance community will also be able to enroll. 'We would really like to fill all of our classes with the community,' Mr. Morehead said.
