On 27 January 2009 Brattleboro Reformer
Vermont, USA reported: Developer Jeffrey Abramson goes 'beyond green' by creating environmentally-friendly, health-creating buildings and also offering his employees the opportunity for self-development through the Transcendental Meditation Programme, which allows them to grow in health, happiness, and productivity. It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of business.

The state of Vermont is embracing sustainable, energy-saving ideas with wind turbines, geo-thermal power, and new green building ideas such as those put into practice by Mr Abramson, of the Tower Companies, based in Rockville, Maryland.

Mr Abramson recently gave a presentation at the River Garden in Brattleboro, Vermont called 'Going Beyond Green: Green Building Design, Health, and Meditation'. He was invited to speak by Shirley Boncheff, director of the Maharishi Invincibility Center.

Ms Boncheff has been in talks with Mr Abramson about building a Peace Palace on the Delta campus [a mixed residential and commercial park], which will be designed on the principles of ancient Vedic architecture, and follow nature's harmonious design.

The Brattleboro Reformer reported, 'Abramson is the largest green developer in the Washington, D.C., area and one of the largest purchasers of green energy—buying 100 percent wind energy for their electrical needs. The company is one of only 13 carbon-neutral companies in the U.S.'

The Tower Companies recently completed the world's largest LEED Platinum
office building, where nature's structure was used as its architectural guideline.

The paper quoted Mr Abramson as saying, 'Nature has an architecture. The nucleus is the center of the cell and the sun is the center of the universe. Human beings respond to environments that replicate the same proportions in nature.'

The sun rises in the east so the Tower building's entrance faces east, giving its occupants the sun's early morning energy. Creativity and intelligence flow throughout the building. The sustainability of the building makes it both healthy for the workers and healthy for the environment.

Another way that Abramson helps his employees stay healthy, productive, and less stressed is by offering them the opportunity to learn Transcendental Meditation (TM) free of charge.

The Brattleboro Reformer reported, 'Abramson says more than 80 percent of his employees take part in the TM Program and the employee retention rate at his company is much greater than the national average. He says the average age of an employee at Tower is 45 and most have been there more than 20 years. Plus, most employees take fewer sick days and actually enjoy coming to work in a dynamic environment.'

Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
