Dr Alain and Dr Marie Courvoisier, Teachers of Transcendental Meditation from France, recently returned from the Seychelles. While there, they were invited to give presentations on the Transcendental Meditation Programme by a former Minister of Tourism and of Education who practises the technique, and who had visited the International Capital of the Global Country of World Peace in MERU, Holland a few years ago.
Showing slides of the beautiful land, architecture, towns, and villages of the Seychelles, Dr Alain Courvoisier explained that the country is an archipelago of 115 islands, located north of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean. Nature is still in a very pure state there, with no pollution, he said. The population is 80,000, with 80-90 per cent living in the capital city, Victoria. Only about 80-100 Yogic Flyers are necessary to create invincibility for the nation (according to the square-root-of-one-per cent formula for the Maharishi Effect).
The Seychelles has a tropical climate, with tourism providing the main income for the country, developing over the last 30-40 years. A mixture of races, cultures, religions, and traditions have been existing together in peace for many years—'really an example of what Maharishi Mahesh Yogi used to call ''Unity in diversity'' ', Dr Courvoisier commented. 'There is great lightness, joy, and easiness,' he said. 'People are very alert, very conscious, and we felt many people are very in tune with Natural Law there, completely lively in Mother Nature.'
The Courvoisiers' first presentations on Consciousness-Based Education were organized by a local women's organization; they met directors and teachers from schools on the main island, and gave presentations at the Ministry of Education. They also presented Maharishi's knowledge in local businesses.
The first public lecture was held at the National Institute of Education; it was well publicized in the local newspapers and on television. An article followed the lecture in the major national newspaper, entitled, 'Meditation experts give training to Seychellois'.
Dr Courvoisier said that the young people learning Transcendental Meditation in the country were very happy with their experience. One student said: 'It would be nice if all the students in my school would practise Transcendental Meditation. I am so happy with my experiences of more energy, clarity, and especially more happiness.'
The Courvoisiers spoke on the 14 October Maharishi Global Family Chat, which is broadcast daily via Internet webcast on the Maharishi Channel, Channel 3. Podcasts of the daily Global Family Chat (audio track) are also available for automatic download, via an RSS feed.
