The highly successful tour* of leading braining researcher Dr Fred Travis** in Great Britain generated a tremendous response from the media, leaders in business and education, teachers, and students.
A head teacher from London wrote a letter in early May to the Times Education Supplement—the major newspaper read by educators in the country—describing his own experience of utilizing the Transcendental Meditation Programme in education, said Raja Peter Warburton, Raja of Invincible Great Britain for the Global Country of World Peace.
The teacher said he was interested in the Times' recent article about Transcendental Meditation because he had 'used the method twice in schools for children with behavioural difficulties and had spectacular results—first at a particularly challenging school.
'It was amazing how the fights and breakage lessened until one could teach normally without living on the edge of disaster all the time.'
Later, as head of another school, he inspired the faculty and staff to practise Transcendental Meditation. He attributed the calm, harmonious atmosphere the teachers created at the school as one of the primary reasons 70 per cent of these troubled students were able to return to mainstream education.
This beautiful letter, Raja Peter said, is one example of the continuing response generated by Dr Travis's tour. Dr Travis 'stirred the nation', Raja Peter said.
