On 3 January 2006 Press-citizen.com reported:
A second Maharishi Enlightenment Centre is planned to open soon in Iowa City, USA, in six to eight weeks, and there are plans for finding land on which to build a large two-story 'Peace Palace' and Maharishi Peace University, as well as for using part of the land for organic agriculture. There is already one successful Maharishi Enlightenment Centre in Iowa City, and eight others throughout the state of Iowa.
It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring
fulfilment to the field of education.
Only a few months after the first Maharishi Enlightenment Centre opened in Iowa City, USA, co-director of the project, Kent Boyum, says that a second centre will be opening in six to eight weeks.
The article reports that 'Maharishi Enlightenment Centres are like day spas that offer about 60 different products and services.' One can also learn the Transcendental Meditation Programme and enjoy 'massage therapy and various herbal and organic products' at the Centres.
The article reports that, according to proponents, the effects of the Maharishi Enlightenment Centres, and larger facilities called 'Peace Palaces', include 'reduced crime, a healthier society, and peace that could eventually spread worldwide'.
The Global Country of World Peace is the non-profit global organization that plans to establish approximately 300 Maharishi Enlightenment Centres and 3,000 Peace Palaces around the world so that these benefits can be enjoyed by everyone everywhere.
Iowa City Maharishi Enlightenment Centre director, Anthony Antimuro, says that the Peace Palaces will be constructed utilizing principles of Vedic Architecture, which incorporate unique building orientation and proper proportions in their design.
As soon as the new Maharishi Enlightenment Centre is established, Antimuro said they will begin to look for a larger tract of land in the Iowa City area for a Peace Palace, and possibly also for organic agriculture, and a Maharishi Peace University.
The article said that a third Maharishi Enlightenment Centre is also planned for Coralville. In the state of Iowa there are currently Maharishi Enlightenment Centres in Ames, Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, Fairfield, and Vedic City.
