During a tour of Africa, Dr Ashley Deans, Global Ambassador of Consciousness-Based Education, completed a highly successful visit to Ghana, presenting to teachers, students, education officials, and the press on how schools can benefit from the programmes of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Dr Deans recently reported on the tour, which took place in autumn 2010.
Dr Deans held a conference for educators in the capital city of Accra, where hundreds were in attendance including local professors. Some of the guests were already practising the Transcendental Meditation Programme, and those who were not inquired about learning immediately following the conference.
Local practitioners of Transcendental Meditation in Accra greatly enjoyed meeting with Dr Deans on his visit. He was impressed by the Global Mother Divine Organization* (GMDO) in Ghana, which has made great progress in introducing TM to local women.
Also in Ghana, Dr Deans was invited to participate in interviews with a student radio station, a popular late-night talk show, and another TV show oriented towards businesspeople.
Finally, Dr Deans met with several officials including those in non-formal education and women's affairs. These leaders quickly understood the need for Consciousness-Based Education as a tool for reducing violence and stress and improving moral reasoning, among many other benefits.
Also see articles on the visits of Dr Deans to Togo and Nigeria. Global Good News will continue to report on his Africa tour in the coming days.
* The Global Mother Divine Organization was founded in December 2007 as the women's wing of the Global Country of World Peace, currently active in 86 countries and rapidly expanding to include 192 countries of the world. In the ancient Vedic tradition of India, the expression 'Mother Divine' refers to the universal, all-nourishing qualities of nature—bliss, intelligence, creativity, harmony—that promote life in the direction of peace and progress.
