The article features the experiences of several mature students living and studying at Maharishi University of Management (MUM) in Fairifeld, Iowa, USA, which they described in a recent video interview.
They had heard about the university in different ways—from friends, from reading David Lynch's book, Catching the Big Fish, and through MUM Visitors Weekends. They were drawn by various aspects of the MUM educational experience, including the Transcendental Meditation Technique, degree programmes in Sustainable Living and Communications and Media, and taking one course at a time. Other attractive elements were the ability to transfer credit from previous coursework, and the organic vegetarian meals provided by the campus food service.
They describe their enjoyment of the 'energy, impetus, and motivation' of being with younger students; and not only the new skills and knowledge they're gaining, but 'that knowledge of yourself', 'a broader range of self-awareness', through their daily practise of Transcendental Meditation. 'It's always there, wherever you go it's with you,' says one student, a mother of grown children. 'It's totally different to a skill set or a training, which is valuable; but you can have an excellent training programme and if you're not complete internally, what are you going to bring to the table?'
