Dr Ashley Deans, Director of Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, recently spent a week in Israel as part of a multi-nation Consciousness-Based Education tour. During his visit, Dr Deans introduced the programme to over 160 educators as well as many thousands of people through the Israeli press, presenting to them a proven, scientific solution to the deep educational crises Israel is facing, and a means to create national invincibility.

Continuing his talk about the tour—featured in Part I and Part II of this series—Dr Alex Kutai, Founder of Invincibility and National Leader of the Transcendental Meditation Movement in Israel, said that Dr Deans gave a presentation about Consciousness-Based Education to 45 principles, supervisors and teachers in Tel-Aviv. The educators had many questions for Dr Deans, Dr Kutai said, and many expressed their interest in implementing the programme. One of the guests, a brain researcher at a university in Tel-Aviv was interested in starting brain research on the Transcendental Meditation Technique.

At their invitation, Dr Deans also met with 25 principles and directors of a youth village that runs many boarding schools for children who come from troubled families. At another youth village, an additional 25 principles and directors showed great interest in Dr Deans' talk and many of them expressed their desire to adopt Consciousness-Based Education. Dr Kutai said that the general manager of the organization concluded the meeting by giving his 'most warm personal recommendation' that all the principles implement the programme.

Dr Deans gave one of his last talks at the prestigious Dan Carmel Hotel in the city of Haifa, which was attended by 45 principles, directors, supervisors, and teachers including a university professor who expressed interest in having a research study conducted at her university's Brain Institute on children with learning disabilities who practise Transcendental Meditation. Dr Kutai reported that the educators at the talk were enthusiastic about the programme and almost all of them registered for a follow-up meeting the next week.

The final presentation of the tour, Dr Kutai said, took place at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Jerusalem. Fifteen educators attended and as in the previous meeting, almost all planned to attend a follow-up meeting the next week.

Dr Kutai concluded by thanking Dr Deans for generating a great a wave of interest in Consciousness-Based Education among the educators and the press in Israel.
