In September, Maharishi School in Lancashire, England, which has offered Consciousness-Based Education for the past 25 years, opened its doors as Maharishi Free School. The school continues to offer a uniquely effective education grounded in the experience of the subtlest and most powerful levels of life.
Maharishi Free School is able to offer this holistic approach to education to all students for free, thanks to the support of the British government.
Dr Peter Warburton, an administrator of the Transcendental Meditation Programme in the UK who is involved in the school project, explained the reasons the government chose to make the Maharishi School one of 24 newly created Free Schools in the UK.
The British government 'wanted to provide better choices for parents, the opportunity for parents to choose better education for their children . . . and they were confident [Maharishi School] would be a great success.'
A requirement for enrolment in the school is that both children and parents first learn Transcendental Meditation. Transcendental Meditation is the most widely prescribed and well-researched meditation technique, and its practice results in swift and profound positive changes for the mind, brain physiology, and behaviour, Dr Warburton said.
'The parents are reporting remarkable changes in their children,' he said. They were noticing these changes even within the first few days of the school's opening.
The success of Maharishi Free School in Lancashire has prompted other cities in the UK to want a school that offers Consciousness-Based Education.
'Already inspiration is spreading widely. Several boroughs in England have decided they would like also to have a Maharishi Free School,' Dr Warburton remarked.
He and others have been meeting county councils and local boroughs around the country to determine where to establish more Maharishi Free Schools.
