The Excellence In Action page of Global Good News is featuring former US Navy Seal Troy Van Beek, who was a security expert in the Mideast and Africa during his nine years of service.

Once a warrior on the battlefield, Troy looked within himself and decided on a different direction. ''If I wanted to see positive change,'' he says, ''I knew I had to embody it myself.'' To explore his spiritual side after becoming a civilian, ''I googled 'enlightenment' and the town of Fairfield came up,'' says Troy.

After visiting, he enrolled in the Sustainable Living Bachelor of Science program at Maharishi University of Management.*

In 2009 Troy founded Ideal Energy as a way to bring wind and solar power technology to corporate and government clients in Iowa and beyond, so they could run their businesses on lower cost, clean energy. For projects, Troy brings together a team of engineers, building performance specialists, security professionals, social change experts, renewable energy consultants, and architects (many of them MUM grads) to work on jobs that often involve installing massive wind turbines and vast arrays of solar panels.
