Kadie Roberts, Jaqueline Leete, Dia Huggins, Alex Hoffman, and Nathaniel Zhu—recent graduates of Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment* in Fairfield, Iowa, USA—describe how Consciousness-Based Education has benefited their lives. Each of the five won the school's Academic Excellence Award, granted to five seniors who maintained a perfect grade point average of 4.0 throughout four years of high school.
Several note their appreciation for the practical results of regular Transcendental Meditation practice. Jacqueline Leete says, 'I really like my TM practice because it helps me in class and sports. To keep my focus and energy up, I always meditate before tennis matches. When we meditate before math class, my attention to detail is more accurate. TM will give me a competitive edge at college if I stay rested and meditate regularly.'
Also highlighted is the stability many students feel they have gained. As Kadie Roberts says, 'TM has given me a calm and stable base to act from; a steady force within me. It gives me comfort and confidence, and I know whatever happens, that self-sufficiency from within will be there. I don't have to worry.'
