Perfect health and ideal education are on the rise in the Caribbean, through the programmes of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Transcendental Meditation Programme and the Global Country of World Peace, bringing the benefits of ancient Vedic Science to modern life.
Raja Graham de Freitas, who serves the Global Country of World Peace as Raja (Administrator) of Invincible Trinidad and Tobago, Grenada, and other nations in his domain, recently reported a number of successful new initiatives:
A primary school in Trinidad and Tobago recently signed an agreement to launch the Consciousness-Based Education programme. As a first step, four faculty members have learnt the Transcendental Meditation Technique, and the school's forty students will soon be instructed. The programme has been successfully used by schools worldwide to develop students' full mental potential and academic performance.
The National Director of Trinidad and Tobago for the Global Country of World Peace, recently trained in Maharishi Light Therapy with Gems—an aspect of Maharishi Vedic Medicine—began offering treatments earlier this month. Thirty-seven people in Trinidad and Tobago, and fifty-one in Barbados, were the first to receive treatment. Many more are looking forward to enjoying this new programme of Maharishi Vedic Health.
On 3 October, Teachers of Transcendental Meditation presented the benefits of the technique at a family wellness symposium hosted by the men's fellowship group of the Presbyterian Church. A psychiatrist who is an adviser to Alcoholics Anonymous had spoken during an earlier session about challenges facing families, and the effects of drugs and alcohol on the brain. Impressed by the scientific research on Transcendental Meditation showing reduced stress and development of brain function, the doctor approached the TM Teachers, expressing interest in learning the practice and collaborating on future projects. He also invited the Teachers to speak about Transcendental Meditation to a group of medical students.
Grenada: Courses to learn Transcendental Meditation now available
During the last week of August, a very popular radio station hosted a presentation on Transcendental Meditation. The next day, Teachers of Transcendental Meditation were interviewed on national television. As a result of two public lectures following the media reports, many people learned the technique. The Teachers are returning to continue giving courses at the end of October.
* Raja Graham's report was featured on the 19 October 2009 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 available for automatic download, via an RSS feed.
