The idea that education should be for enlightenment, and promote full development of the brain, met with great interest among people in Israel who attended a series of presentations on Consciousness-Based Education this past year.
The presentations were given by Dr Ashley Deans, Executive Director of Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, who is an international expert in this field. Dr Deans was visiting Israel as part of a tour of Middle East countries.
Social media helped spread the word about Dr Deans' Israel tour, with the result that at every venue enthusiastic listeners packed the hall to learn more about Consciousness-Based Education and Transcendental Meditation. For example, 800 people attended in a small town in upper Galilee, and the five lectures in Tel Aviv brought the same response—there was great enthusiasm in the 'absolutely packed' lecture halls.
In Haifa, two well-attended public lectures stirred much interest in Transcendental Meditation, and as a result more Israelis are learning the simple, natural stress-reducing technique. Dr Deans also met with education officials there.
Two lectures in Jerusalem also awakened great interest in Consciousness-Based Education among the educational community.
Israelis deeply appreciated learning about stress-free schools—a welcome concept, almost incomprehensible in a country where many experience high levels of stress in daily life, and where many programmes have been tried to address school problems and help children. People were moved to hear about the success of Consciousness-Based Education in hundreds of schools throughout the world, Dr Deans said—especially that it is a system backed by scientific research, which can create coherent national consciousness and world peace.
