In the beautiful Nandi Hills region of Kenya, above the famed Rift Valley, a village continues to thrive and grow through the Transcendental Meditation programme. Among the meditators in Kipsebwo Village is a large, enthusiastic group of women, more than 55 mothers and grandmothers.
Several times a week, about 25 women meet to meditate together. They are noticing many positive changes since beginning the practice, said a local Transcendental Meditation teacher. 'They all report having more energy and more happiness, and express their deepest appreciation for Transcendental Meditation' and for Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's organizations for having brought it to their village.
'As a community in Kipsebwo, we are so happy about Transcendental Meditation because it has brought a lot of happiness and a lot of love in our homes,' one of the women commented.
'It has brought us together as a community in order to practise Transcendental Meditation. One thing about Transcendental Meditation is that it has melted our hard hearts and so now we are soft as a community.'
Forty girls from Nandi Hills are attending Maharishi Secondary School for Girls in Mbale, Uganda. The girls are receiving high scores on their exams and are the pride of their families. There is great demand to have a Maharishi School in Nandi Hills.
During his recent tour of Africa, Dr Bevan Morris, President of Maharishi University of Management, visited Kipsebwo and was very impressed with the strong ladies' group there, who gave the visiting delegation a grand welcome.

In the neighbouring village of Kaptien, 30 women learned Transcendental Meditation in April and many more are starting the practice. Transcendental Meditation teachers in Kenya feel that as a reflection of the rising number of meditators, the national consciousness is becoming increasingly integrated and harmonious, as evidenced by many reports in the Kenyan press.
