Dr Ashley Deans, Global Ambassador for Consciousness-Based Education, recently commented that as he has been travelling the world giving presentations on Consciousness-Based Education, he has found that the idea of Transcendental Meditation in schools has been greatly enlivened by the thousands of positive press articles published about the historic 'Change Begins Within' benefit concert for the David Lynch Foundation at Radio City Music Hall, New York, earlier this year.
The press coverage around the world was 'uniformly just glowing and positive', said Dr Deans. At the concert, 'it was really an eye-opener to see artists and a great variety of personalities who obviously had experienced tremendous benefit. It was obvious that the most successful people in society today are practitioners of Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation Programme,' he continued.
All those speaking at the press conference held the morning before the concert made such a great impression on the press because it was the perfect balance of artist and scientist. 'Dr John Hagelin* gave a wonderful presentation about the scientific basis of Transcendental Meditation, and then these great artists came out to say how it had transformed their lives,' Dr Deans reported, showing slides of the celebrities and the press conference.
Dr Deans and 40 Teachers of the Transcendental Meditation Programme from Canada were among 3,000 Yogic Flyers who 'packed' Radio City Music Hall, together with a long list of the very top celebrities in the world of entertainment.
'It was a great experience to be in New York for the concert,' said Dr Deans. 'It was a really amazing experience for the Canadians who came down and for people who attended from all over the world.'
The 40 Canadian Teachers, who all travelled to the concert together, also enjoyed a very productive weekend, including a special meeting with the Raja of Invincible Canada, Raja Paul Potter, at the Global Financial Capital of New York at 70 Broad Street. A presentation was made about the new community and Maharishi Tower of Invincibility to be built at Niagara Falls. Teachers pioneering Consciousness-Based Education in schools and Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture also attended this meeting.
* Raja John Hagelin is a world-renowned quantum physicist and Executive Director of the International Center for Invincible Defense in New York City, USA. He is also Raja of Invincible America and Minister of Science and Technology of the Global Country of World Peace.
