Principals in three secondary schools in Sweden have become interested in Transcendental Meditation and Consciousness-Based Education, as the result of a recent visit to that country by Dr Ashley Deans. Dr Deans, Global Ambassador of Consciousness-Based Education for the Global Country of World Peace, was in Sweden as part of his continuing worldwide tour.

After Dr Deans' talk at a Consciousness-Based Education conference, three secondary schools—for students age 16-20—expressed their interested in Transcendental Meditation.

One school has 1,000 students, another has 500, and the third approximately 150, said Raja Bruce Plaut, Raja of Invincible Sweden for the Global Country of World Peace

Sweden needs 300 Yogic Flyers to create national invincibility, so these students could potentially accomplish this, Raja Plaut said.

The principals of these schools attended the conference and were extremely enthusiastic and wanted to start moving forward right away. They wanted to learn Transcendental Meditation themselves and have Consciousness-Based Education presented to their teachers.

A school teacher at one school is also a Transcendental Meditation Teacher and is very well respected at the school. The school's principal has asked her to be the coordinator for the programme there.

Fundraising efforts for the school programmes are under way, Raja Plaut said.

In addition to the conference, Dr Deans spent one whole day at the Maharishi Invincibility Centre discussing practical steps for expansion and implementation of Consciousness-Based Education with educators, practitioners of Transcendental Meditation, Yogic Flyers, and Teachers of Transcendental Meditation. It was a very well-attended, very successful day, Raja Plaut said.
