Dr Volker Schanbacher, Minister of Education for the Global Country of World Peace and International President of Maharishi University of World Peace, recently reported on an initiative to facilitate the availability and implementation of Consciousness-Based Education throughout the world.
Speaking on the Maharishi Global Family Chat he said that a new course for educational leaders, Yogic Flyers, and Transcendental Meditation Teachers interested in implementing Consciousness-Based Education in their respective countries has been developed.
The course, entitled 'Creating Ideal Consciousness-Based Schools and Universities: Total Knowledge for All Students, Invincibility for the Nation', was first held in MERU, Holland in July 2008 and was attended by 135 people from 55 countries.
It will also soon be held in ten major cities in Ukraine, where several large schools have expressed interest in Consciousness-Based Education.
The course, developed by the International Foundation of Consciousness-Based Education, is 18 hours and consists of 12 sessions. It presents Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's principles of curriculum and instruction from the past five decades, and provides educational leaders with scientific verification and steps for implementation of Consciousness-Based Education programmes in schools and universities.
Dr Schanbacher explained that the goal of Consciousness-Based Education is to develop wholeness of awareness, the complete integration of silence and dynamism in the students. This is the state of Total Knowledge, Unity Consciousness, in which the total intelligence of Natural Law spontaneously guides one's thought, speech, and action. All aspects of Consciousness-Based Education help to structure this in a systematic way, Dr Schanbacher said.
In addition to printed materials, the course includes video-taped lectures by leading international experts in Consciousness-Based Education, including presentations by Dr Susie Dilbeck, President of the International Foundation of Consciousness-Based Education, and Dr Ashley Deans, Director of the award-winning Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment in Fairfield, Iowa, USA.
Topics of the course include:
- The unique principles, practice, and scientific basis of Consciousness-Based Education;
- Consciousness-Based principles of curriculum, teaching, and communication;
- Consciousness-Based courses;
- Learning activities that develop the integration of analysis and synthesis;
- Ideal routine of a Consciousness-Based Education school or university.
The purpose of the course is not only to offer ideal education throughout the world, but also to help create national invincibility in every country through group practice of Yogic Flying by the students at these Consciousness-Based schools.
Dr Schanbacher quoted Maharishi:
'By creating a few groups of Yogic Flyers, automatically the effect will be an integrated national consciousness. With an integrated national consciousness, negative trends will not arise and will not be permitted to enter in the country from outside. It is a great relief that even a few people can achieve this. The population of student age is being trained to be good citizens of the country. So our programme is to introduce Transcendental Meditation and Yogic Flying in the high schools and colleges. And that will be enough for all generations to have national consciousness integrated, created by the groups of Yogic Flyers in the schools and colleges. So nothing much has to be done for every national consciousness to remain integrated. Integrated national consciousness means abundance of positivity, coherence, cordiality, love, affection, freedom—freedom in a well-coordinated state of national consciousness.'
The course is being finalized, Dr Schanbacher said, and will soon be available to those wishing to offer the students of their nation ideal education.
