Renowned Panel of Educators and Scientists to Showcase 30 Years of Scientific Research and Classroom Experience with the Transcendental Meditation® Program

On April 18th, US Peace Government president Dr. John Hagelin and a renowned panel of educators and scientists will launch two national tours to promote Consciousness-Based education and the impact of the Transcendental Meditation program on educational outcomes (see schedule below).

The tours will visit 13 cities in Colorado, Arizona, Nevada, New York, and New England and will focus on children's health and education-including effective ways to improve academic achievements and prevent and treat stress, anxiety, depression, and learning disabilities.

The presentations in each city will provide local educators, government leaders, health professionals, and foundations with a complete introduction to the Transcendental Meditation program-including the 30 years of scientific research and classroom experience documenting its practical, wide-ranging benefits for both students and teachers. The speakers will also give step-by-step information about how to start Consciousness-Based educational programs in schools. The conference will showcase the seven-year success of the TM® program at the award-winning Nataki Talibah Schoolhouse of Detroit.

Dr. Ashley Deans, director of the award-winning Maharishi School in Fairfield, Iowa, will also speak about his new book A Record of Excellence: The Remarkable Success of Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment and about the achievements of this flagship school for Consciousness-Based education (see
