On 14 February 2009 The Press Association reported: Preliminary plans are being formulated for two academies in Great Britain that would include Transcendental Meditation as part of their curriculum. 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.

Students at the proposed academies, which will be open to children of all faiths, would spend two 10-minute Transcendental Meditation sessions a day sitting quietly at their desks with eyes closed, explained Derek Cassells, head of the private Maharishi School in Ormskirk, Lancashire.

Mr Cassells told the Times Educational Supplement (TES), 'The key factor is that the meditation brings balance to the nervous system. This leads to greater creativity, intelligence and harmony, and better behaviour.'

Global Good News comment:

For more about the effectiveness of Transcendental Meditation in educational settings, please visit: 'Quiet Time in the Classroom', Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment, and scientific research.

Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
