On 12 March 2007 W Weekly reported:
The Maharishi Peace Palace of Lexington, Kentucky, USA is designed on the principles of Vedic architecture, which emphasizes the efficient use of natural light and open space, alignment with the cardinal compass directions, and natural, non-toxic building materials.
It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring
fulfilment to the field of world peace.
'It is built to be ''in tune with the intelligence of nature,'' ' said architect Sue Weller, who designed the structure along with her husband, Rick, W Weekly reported.
Howard Settle, president and CEO of RAAM Global Energy Inc., a gas and oil exploration company, funded the building of the $4 million Peace Palace and has his company's offices on the second floor.
The article stated, 'In addition to an exceptionally serene workplace, RAAM also offers training in Transcendental Meditation as a benefit to its employees.'
Employees have reported fewer allergies, colds, and less susceptibility to the 'winter blues'.
The Peace Palace is open to the general public and offers a seven-step programme in the basics of Transcendental Meditation, which includes personal guidance and training from a certified instructor, a once-a-month follow-up programme recommended for the first year, and additional consultation opportunities as needed for life, the article reported.
In addition, there are courses on diet, nutrition, and other health-related topics.
W Weekly quoted Mary Murphy, who runs the Peace Palace along with her husband Jeffry, as saying, 'We'd like to see enough individuals in Lexington practicing Transcendental Meditation to create an effect of peace and harmony that would lower the crime rate and the accident rate, and improve the quality of life for everyone.'
Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total
Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
