The 'Invincible Africa' tour of Dr Bevan Morris recently moved on to its second major phase, proceeding to South Africa from the four West African countries where the 14-nation tour began. Dr Morris spent several days in Johannesburg and nearby areas, before going on to Durban on the southeast coast.
The tour is part of the Golden Jubilee celebrations of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's programmes in Africa. Dr Morris is President of Maharishi University of Management (MUM) and an international authority in all of Maharishi's programmes and technologies of consciousness, including the Transcendental Meditation Programme and Consciousness-Based Education.
One focal point of Dr Morris's first days in South Africa was Maharishi Institute, the innovative, highly successful institution which was created in 2007 to 'take accessible tertiary education to another level, to showcase South Africa as a leading innovator in education provision, and create a worldwide breakthrough using the approach of Consciousness-Based Education,' according to its website.
Hosted by MI founder Dr Taddy Blecher and co-director Dr Richard Peycke, Dr Morris toured the large facility and met with several groups of students, including those participating in academic programmes through the Institute's partnership with MUM.
Global Good News will report more fully on Dr Morris's visit to Maharishi Institute in a separate article, including his appreciation for:
∙ the high quality of the students and their moving accounts of their experiences with Consciousness-Based Education—and a rousing performance by the student choir;
∙ the amazing resourcefulness of the Institute's leadership, who have inspired the growth of its infrastructure largely through corporate donations; and
∙ the Institute's growing role in creating invincible peace and progress for all of South of Africa.
The tour also ventured to areas outside Johannesburg, including an academy in a spectacularly beautiful mountainous area in Drakensburg, which has been used since 1980 for in-residence meditation courses; Ezemvelo Nature Reserve, which is part of Maharishi Institute; and Pretoria.
While in Johannesburg Dr Morris stayed at the national centre for the Transcendental Meditation Programme, which is located in Houghton, a beautiful and dignified area of the city. There he was hosted, as on the entire South Africa tour, by Dr Peycke, who is director of the Transcendental Meditation Programme for South Africa, and also by Dr Vicki Broome and Dr Richard Broome, the directors of the very active Houghton TM Centre.
A large group of Transcendental Meditation practitioners and teachers attended a day-long seminar given by Dr Morris, including the latest inspiring news of Maharishi's programmes around the world. He praised the leadership and 'admirable dedication' shown by all the teachers in South Africa, who have achieved very large and successful projects for the enlightenment and invincibility of their country all through the years, including Dr Vicki Broome, who has instructed 8,000 people in the technique.
Before starting his report on South Africa, Dr Morris finished recounting the first phase of the Invincible Africa tour in West Africa. He continued to meet with government officials and other leaders in Togo, then went to Senegal, his last stop in the region. Global Good News will continue reporting the successes of Dr Morris's meetings and activities in these countries, as well as his very full schedule in South Africa. The next stop after Durban was planned to be Capetown.
