Cyprus has been divided for 37 years—Turkish Cypriots in the north and Greek Cypriots in the south. A conference on 25 September in the United Nations Green Zone between north and south will explore how the Transcendental Meditation Programme--through creating the Maharishi Effect, a sustained, coherent influence of peace and harmony in national consciousness—can support the proposed reunification of Cyprus.
Over ten years ago, Dr Theodore Pizanis, a Teacher of the Transcendental Meditation Programme, instructed 1,000 people in the technique in southern Cyprus. Now Dr Pizanis has returned with his family to live in the area.
On 25 September Dr Pizanis is holding a conference in the United Nations Green Zone on creating invincibility for Cyprus. This will be followed on 26 September, by a Maharishi Gandharva Veda concert to create balance in Nature and peace and harmony in the region.
Dr Pizanis reported recently* that there are about 1,000 practitioners of Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation Programme in Cyprus, about 60 of whom also practise the advanced Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, including Yogic Flying. They have been gathering for group practice of the programme, and are very inspired by Dr Pizanis's return and the September conference.
Cypriots from both the north and south will attend the 25 September conference, as well as members of the United Nations. Conference organizers intend 'to strengthen bi-communal relations through the coherence-creating benefits of the Transcendental Meditation Programme,' Dr Pizanis said. A presentation will be made about the scientific basis for creating a unified Cyprus.
One Yogic Flyer was inspired to participate in a large coherence-creating group for Cyprus by recent experiences while attending the Invincible America Assembly in Fairfield, Iowa, USA.
Only about 100 Yogic Flyers are needed to create invincibility for Cyprus. 'This should be easy to achieve,' Dr Pizanis said, 'and we are looking forward to greater and greater achievements.'
* Dr Pizanis spoke on the 9 September Maharishi Global Family Chat, which is broadcast daily via Internet webcast on the Maharishi Channel, Channel 3. Podcasts of the daily Global Family Chat (audio track) are also now available for automatic download, via an RSS feed.
