In South Korea, applications of Transcendental Meditation are being explored to reduce stress and increase creativity, both in education and in business.
In the past year relationships have been forming with universities, business groups, and other organizations.
Representatives of Maharishi University of Management (MUM) in the United States spoke with officials at several Korean universities about exchanging ideas and working together for the benefit of their students.
The team from MUM visited a large university with several thousand students and met with the director of international relations. As a result of the meeting, the director decided to visit Maharishi University of Management to see how their unique approach, Consciousness-Based Education, promotes students' creativity, well-being, and academic success.
Two months later, the director visited the MUM campus and enjoyed learning more about Consciousness-Based Education, meeting with students, including a Korean teacher of Transcendental Meditation, and visiting Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment for K-12 students.
Transcendental Meditation teachers in South Korea met with an organization promoting sustainability, discussing applications of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's programmes for development, including Transcendental Meditation.
There was also a presentation to a human resource management company, the president of which is interested in the Corporate Development Programme founded by Maharishi.
In addition, TM teachers gave a presentation to hundreds of senior citizens in Daegu, and gave a talk on spirituality and leadership to students at a major university in Seoul.
