A proposed new Maharishi Free School in the UK has drawn positive reactions from the local community and press. Everyone has been very positive and warm, said a Transcendental Meditation teacher involved in the project, relating a recent anecdote as an example.
He had a meeting related to the school project with the manager of a business in the local town and sat with her for awhile while she sorted out some complex aspects, he said, adding that this took place during the hectic holiday season.
The manager suddenly asked him, 'What's happened? What is your secret? You've just completely changed the atmosphere here. We were feeling quite stressed with all the rush before Christmas. I came into the room to meet you with all of that stress and it's all completely dissolved. What's your secret? I want to know what your secret is.'
The manager added that she had done these complicated procedures during the meeting that normally would have left her feeling a little bit tense or stressed, but she 'just sailed through the whole thing'.
The Transcendental Meditation teacher continued, 'We told her if you want to know the secret, it's Transcendental Meditation.' The manager said that she had heard of it; in fact, she wanted to learn. She also knew about the new free school.
The teacher concluded his story, adding that Maharishi Mahesh Yogi envisioned that these schools would be established 'as beacons . . . training ideal citizens and at the same time directly creating coherence in society through the influence of peace in the environment.'
