Interest in Consciousness-Based Education is expanding in Northern Ireland in both the Protestant and Catholic communities.

About seven schools want to implement the programme, Raja Tom Stanley, Raja of Invincible Northern Ireland for the Global Country of World Peace, said on 12 February.

While more Teachers of the Transcendental Meditation Programme are needed to fulfil this great demand, the programmes that are already in place are enjoying success, he said.

An independent evaluation was recently completed by a school teacher who needed to produce a report for continuing training and development. The teacher carried out an action research evaluation on a class practising Transcendental Meditation in a boys' secondary school in Belfast.

Raja Stanley quoted the report conclusion: 'Action research on Transcendental Meditation has proved successful as results have shown.

'It has aided motivation, concentration, and a clearer mindset to enable students to fulfil their needs within the classroom environment. Within a class that has behavioural problems, an 80 per cent increase in positive attitude and behaviour was documented.

'One of the pupils stated, ''I will continue to practise TM both at school and at home as this allows me to concentrate and motivates me to work at a better pace in a more reasonable manner.'' '

Global Good News will feature additional initiatives in Northern Ireland in the coming days.
