A major campaign is in progress to let the whole country of Lebanon know about the value of Consciousness-Based Education: for unfolding the total creative potential of the student, for total brain development, and for developing the ability to achieve anything.

Very well-attended conferences on Consciousness-Based Education have been held, and presentations have also been made at the Ministry of Education.

In a recent report, Dr Ziad Dakdouk, National Director of Education of the Global Country of World Peace for Lebanon, said that during the last few months they have met with many top educators and school principals, presenting the unique benefits and advantages of Consciousness-Based Education in schools and universities. The response has been extremely positive, both in terms of education and in the understanding of the value of student groups of Yogic Flyers to create peace for the nation and for the whole Middle East.

A presentation was made to several hundred educators and principals at an education conference organized at the UNESCO Palace in Beirut. Two television presentations have also been made that were very successful.

Hundreds of educators have received materials at all their presentations, in many schools and at an educational foundation—including pamphlets, brochures, and DVDs. The pamphlets present the scientific research and articles about Consciousness-Based Education.

The population of Lebanon is four million, so the required number of Yogic Flyers to create invincibility for the nation is 200. Dr Dakdouk said that any small school could fulfil this role, and that they 'do not see it as very far away now', as funding is now being organized for several schools that are ready to introduce Consciousness-Based Education.
