Several new developments in Algeria and Tunisia in the past year have helped bring the Transcendental Meditation programme to more people in the region.
Two of the most popular newspapers in Algeria published positive press articles about Transcendental Meditation.
A new teacher of Transcendental Meditation, Amine Kouider, completed his training course in Thailand this year and returned to Algeria where he has been teaching in the Transcendental Meditation Centre in Algiers. Amine is a graduate of Maharishi University of Management in the USA and has also been working with the David Lynch Foundation in the photography and video departments. He has travelled around the world producing films about Consciousness-Based Education and other projects supported by the Foundation in Thailand, India, and Uganda.
A Consciousness-Based Education programme is being developed in Algeria, through a private professional institution of higher education owned by a practitioner of Transcendental Meditation. An agreement has been signed with Maharishi University of Management (MUM) to offer courses in Algeria, and allowing students at the institution to apply for MUM's professional internship MA programmes. Students will learn Transcendental Meditation as part of the programme.
In other news in Algeria, a new website for the Transcendental Meditation programme is under development and will soon be launched online.
Originally established in Algeria, the VedAroma organization has moved to Tunisia where nearly all the essential oils and perfumes are produced. All the products are completely natural, using organic or wild-crafted ingredients. Algerian and Tunisian practitioners of Transcendental Meditation are working together on this project. The employees meditate together at the facility; their group practice creates an effect of coherence in the environment which has been documented by scientific research in many countries to promote decreased crime and violence and increased harmony and positivity in society. Proceeds from the business also help support groups of peace-creating experts in India.
