The National Director of Northern Ireland for the Global Country of World Peace, Dr Andrea Gribben, recently reported on the great success of Consciousness-Based Education in Northern Ireland and the growing demand for the Stress-Free Schools programme.

Continuing her presentation on the Maharishi Global Family Chat on 16 October, she said that last week an education official who is in charge of numerous schools visited a secondary school where the students are learning the Transcendental Meditation Technique.

The students spontaneously told him 'about the wonderful experience they had had that morning when they learnt TM', Dr Gribben said. The official was so impressed that he decided to learn Transcendental Meditation that same day. 'He's a highly respected educator and has great influence within the education system,' Dr Gribben said.

The educator, who has a background in science, also appreciated the scientific basis and the many scientific studies presented on the website about the Stress-Free Schools programme, and said he feels very comfortable recommending it.

Recently, the official contacted Dr Gribben and said that a primary school in a high-stress region had reached a crisis point—with many teachers away from work due to stress-related illness, and a chaotic atmosphere arising from some students' behaviour—and he advised implementing the Stress-Free Schools programme into the school immediately.

Dr Gribben said they will begin teaching Transcendental Meditation at the school next week. Two of the boys from the secondary school who have learned Transcendental Meditation will visit this school as ambassadors for Stress-Free Schools, and will be a great inspiration to the primary school students.

The official also mentioned many other schools where he would like this programme offered. 'We can hardly keep up with him,' Dr Gribben commented.

Global Good News will feature the continuation of Dr Gribben's presentation in the coming days.
