Maharishi Mahesh Yogi first arrived in Canada in 1961, visiting Victoria, which became the founding home of the Transcendental Meditation Programme organization in the nation.

Raja Paul Potter, Raja of Invincible Canada, and Dr Ashley Deans recently visited Victoria as the starting point for their tour presenting Consciousness-Based Education across Canada. They met with all the local Teachers and practitioners of Transcendental Meditation, whom they commended for 'holding the fort' in Victoria for almost 50 years.

They also met many school principals and educators, and visited the Victoria School for Ideal Education. Describing the tour recently, Dr Deans commented that this school has the same feeling as any other Maharishi School around the world: 'The students are really bright, attentive, focussed, happy,' he said.

Dr Deans and Raja Paul presented to students of this school photographs of other meditating students around the world. The students in Victoria 'were fascinated to see so many students around the world like themselves, enjoying Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation and the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, including Yogic Flying,' Dr Deans said.

Raja Paul and Dr Deans also spoke to teachers at a First Nations School on the island; one of the teachers is the Minister of Cultural Integrity of the Global Country of World Peace for Canada. His sister related an experience that occurred when she attended an introductory talk on Transcendental Meditation one year ago. She had dreamt a few nights before, that it would be revealed to her how all the prisons could be emptied and the difficulties her people had been through for so many years, would soon be over. At the lecture she realized that Transcendental Meditation was what she had been looking for.

At the First Nations school meeting she related all the benefits she has gained from Transcendental Meditation, which she learned following that introductory lecture. As a result, she has inspired many other teachers who are now receiving instruction, and the children of the school will also be learning when they return after the summer.

Dr Deans also reported that they gave an introductory lecture to a 'packed' audience in Victoria, and in two other towns on the island. This led to a local parents' association arranging a talk for parents, school board members, superintendents, and principals, which was very well received.

Global Good News will present a second article about this Consciousness-Based Education tour in the coming days.
