Christine Albers* describes one area among the countless achievements of Maharishi School in Fairfield, Iowa, USA: The school has won 17 state championships in the annual State Speech Competition, sponsored by the Iowa High School Speech Association. Competing with thousands of students from over 360 secondary schools, the school is tied for second in the state for the most wins in state history. Of thousands of acts, only the best are chosen to perform at the All-State Festival.
After two acts from Maharishi School were again selected to perform in a recent competition, the director of the school's speech programme, Ben Estey, discussed the students' brilliant performances and the contribution of their daily Transcendental Meditation practice to their success individually and as a group. ''Transcending is a useful tool that gives students the ability to go deeper within and bring that knowledge and understanding of themselves to their work. . . .
''Our choral reading critic praised our students on their ability to speak and said: 'Your school's reputation for excellence continues! What a visual display—the colors, the textures, the beauty, the majesty. You are professional, polished, pitch-perfect. I always travel the world with a Maharishi Choral Reading. Thank you!' ''
The article also includes a description by legendary film director David Lynch of seeing a theatrical performance by Maharishi School students for the first time:
''. . . . I really couldn't believe what I was seeing. I loved that thing, and I had never seen anything quite like it; and this reminded me of glowing consciousness on the stage—intelligence, timing, humor. It was exquisite movements and a joy in the doing. It was all there. That was very powerful to me.''
