Ezemvelo Game Reserve, one of South Africa's premier nature areas, is a 4,000-hectare expanse located about two hours from Johannesburg. It is home to many animals, including zebra, giraffe, impala, and springbok, and to 280 bird species. Donated recently to Maharishi Institute, Ezemvelo has become the venue for a programme in sustainability now offered by the Institute at this rural campus.
On his recent visit to Maharishi Institute in Johannesburg for the celebration of its first graduation, Dr Craig Pearson, Executive Vice-President of Maharishi University of Management, USA, visited the Ezemvelo Nature Reserve with Dr Richard Peycke, who together with Dr Taddy Blecher, founded the Institute in 2007. Dr Pearson was impressed with the quality of focus and intelligence of students studying at the Reserve, including the group in the sustainability programme.
At the time of this administrative visit a team from the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) was at the Reserve doing a television story on sustainability. Reporters took the opportunity to interview both Dr Pearson and Dr Peycke for the story. The depth of their understanding and experience in Consciousness-Based Education brought to light for the piece the important role and value of the development of the consciousness in the student as an integral part of their education.
The popularity and momentum of expansion of Maharishi Institute programmes continues to grow as local support increases. To learn more about the programmes offered at Ezemvelo Nature Reserve please visit: http://maharishiinstitute.org/our-campus/nature-reserve/.
