In the past several years the academic community in Greece has repeatedly welcomed three eminent professors from Maharishi University of Management in the United States.
The three faculty are world-renowned quantum physicist Dr John Hagelin; Dr Robert Schneider, dean of the Maharishi College of Perfect Health at MUM; and researcher Dr Fred Travis, director of the Center for Brain, Consciousness, and Cognition.
Dr Hagelin is president of the David Lynch Foundation; executive director of the International Center for Invincible Defense and the Center for Leadership Performance; and director of the Institute of Science, Technology and Public Policy.
Dr Schneider is also director of the Institute for Natural Medicine and Prevention and an expert in research on the beneficial effects of the Transcendental Meditation Programme in reducing cardiovascular risk factors and heart disease.
Large numbers of university students in Athens have been inspired by lectures given by Dr Hagelin, Dr Schneider, and Dr Travis on topics including reduced stress, promotion of health, and development of total brain functioning through technologies of consciousness developed by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, including Transcendental Meditation. Following their presentations many students have learned the technique.
Two years ago Dr Hagelin and Dr Schneider participated in a three-day programme of extended lectures, which was part of a year-long course for medical doctors and advanced medical students at the University of Athens. They spoke about Maharishi Ayur-Veda natural health care and the Transcendental Meditation programme as a method of creating health through the mind-body connection, and as a whole set of methods for the mind, body, and environment for preventing disease and promoting health.
