The concluding session in the new Invincible Africa Knowledge Series features 'Application of the Transcendental Meditation Programme for the Education, Health and Promotion of Peace in Africa'—a series of presentations by leading scientists and experts at the Gotabgaa Conference in Washington, DC, USA, in June 2010.
The Gotabgaa Conference is a large annual gathering of Kenyans living in the United States and other countries. The 2010 conference was carried live by Kenyan media, and was said to have been received by over six million people in Kenya and across the world.
Presenters on Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's programmes included:
∙ Dr Chris Crowell, Director of International Program Development for Maharishi University of Management, and an International Director of the Global Country of World Peace;
∙ Dr Robert Schneider, Director of the Institute for Natural Medicine and Prevention and Dean of Maharishi College of Perfect Health, Maharishi University of Management;
∙ Dr George Rutherford, Principal of the Ideal Academy Public Charter School in Washington, DC;
∙ Dr Fred Travis, Director of the Center for Brain, Consciousness, and Cognition; and
∙ Dr Carolyn Gaylord King, Professor of Physiology and Health, researcher on the Transcendental Meditation technique, and Trustee of Maharishi University of Management.
The 2010 Gotabgaa Conference also received special greetings from President Joaquim Chissano, former President of Mozambique, who spoke of his practice of Transcendental Meditation and encouraged all the participants to learn about its benefits from the conference presentations, and share with their countrymen this simple practice to reduce stress and find peace within themselves, in their relationships within their communities, and among all the people in their nation.
'I would like to greet you all at this occasion that I have been given to address the Gotabgaa Conference 2010,' President Chissano said. 'I feel honored to be with you when you are preparing your efforts to unite yourselves as Kenyans in order to promote your citizenship, although you are far away from your country. I have been given the privilege of helping in some way to restore peace and unity in your country during the conflict which was generated after the last elections, and pleased that all efforts have been made inside the country and outside the country to promote this peace.
'I know that we can search for peace looking into the unity of each other, but this cannot be effective—cannot be effective—while we don't have a peace each one in himself. We have to have our internal peace first. We have to know deeply what we are. And there are many ways of knowing oneself. We know the societies, the history of each society, and so on. But one to know himself, he must be living in a deep knowledge of his inside.'
Global Good News will continue to feature President Chissano's message to the 2010 Conference; as well as more about the other presenters.
Session Six of the Invincible Africa Knowledge Series—the DVD featuring the 2010 Gotabgaa Conference for Kenyans, is being offered to the public through Maharishi Invincibility Centres throughout Africa.
