Consciousness-Based Education is expanding in schools and colleges in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Quebec, Ontario, and the Maritimes.
'Right across Canada schools are beginning Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's Transcendental Meditation Programme and Consciousness-Based Education,' said Dr Ashley Deans, Ambassador of the Global Country of World Peace for Consciousness-Based Education,* reporting on his recent visit to Canada.
Dr Deans discussed a new level of receptivity in the educational community. 'We have had meetings at top levels in government and top levels of education departments at universities,' Dr Deans said, referring to areas of the country where there had been less interest in the past.
Nearly all of the 40 students at a First Nations school who heard an introductory talk about the Transcendental Meditation Programme want to learn the technique, Dr Deans said.** All of the parents who have heard about the programme are also in favour of it.
At another school, where students learned the Transcendental Meditation Programme last fall, a research study is nearly complete, Dr Deans continued.
Twenty-five students at a college recently learned Transcendental Meditation, he added. Group practice of Transcendental Meditation for those in their 20's and 30's is held regularly 'and interest is growing rapidly among this age group', he said.
Dr Deans also reported on the Maharishi School in Victoria, which has enjoyed over 20 years of success. 'As with all of the other locations where there are Maharishi Schools, the Maharishi School in Victoria is the best school in the whole region,' Dr Deans said.
One of the leaders of the accreditation board that recently visited the school said, 'You have the best kept secret. You should tell everyone about this school.'
The school hopes to be able to expand to the high school level, and also to establish an academy for ladies, Dr Deans said.
*Dr Deans is also Executive Director of Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment in Fairfield, Iowa, USA.
**Dr Deans' report was featured on the 2 June 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.
