At the celebration of the four-year anniversary of the David Lynch Foundation,* Dr Ashley Deans described instances of the warmly enthusiastic response to Consciousness-Based Education in Lebanon and Turkey.
In a town on the Syrian border, where Dr Deans expected to meet just a handful of people, the whole village came to a presentation on Consciousness-Based Education; after hearing the presentation, 400 students will be starting the Transcendental Meditation Programme. 'This is a wonderful opportunity to create coherence in that particular area of the world,' Dr Deans commented.
For more news about Dr Deans' tour of Turkey earlier this year, please see 'Educators, officials, public inspired', and 'Success of Consciousness-Based Education tour'.
In Lebanon there was 'a fantastic response', Dr Deans said. 'Students stood up and cheered when told they would be starting Transcendental Meditation and Yogic Flying. It was the same response all over Lebanon,' he said.
Requests from school principals to implement this programme in their schools were quickly approved by education authorities.
Dr Deans' tour of Lebanon was featured in other Global Good News articles, including: 'Benefits of Consciousness-Based Education stir interest in hundreds of educators'.
