Dr Eckhart Stein, eminent professor of quantum physics and Maharishi's Vedic Science, recently presented the benefits of Consciousness-Based Education during a lecture tour in Germany.
Speaking on Maharishi Global Family Chat,* Dr Stein reported on his tour, which included 11 lectures to teachers and school staff in the German state of Thuringia.
In his lectures Dr Stein explained the scientifically researched benefits of the Transcendental Meditation Programme both for the individual student or teacher, and for creating national and global invincibility. The message was very well received by audience members, which mainly consisted of teachers. 'These educators clearly understood that something must be done to bring these programmes to German schools,' said Dr Stein.
The success of the lecture tour was due in part to Dr Stein's efforts to raise awareness for the event, by having central education authorities distribute flyers. In addition, announcements of the event were published in local newspapers.
The event was covered positively in the press with several short articles, which Dr Stein hopes will lead to further interest among schools in the area. Also, he reported that participants will be awarded a certificate for attending, and that organizers will follow up with teachers who have expressed interest in introducing Consciousness-Based Education in their schools, he said.
Dr Stein ended by saying he hopes that attendees will be inspired to learn Transcendental Meditation, and that he expects further media coverage to follow. 'We've definitely begun gathering support from the public, but we must continue in our efforts so as to make these school programmes a reality.'
* Dr Stein's report was featured on the 9 January 2010 Maharishi Global Family Chat, broadcast daily via Internet webcast on the Maharishi Channel, Channel 3. Podcasts of the daily Global Family Chat (audio track) are also now available for automatic download, via an RSS feed.
