The first global Vastu* Coordinator Training Course, offered over the Internet to Teachers of the Transcendental Meditation Technique and practitioners of the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, began on Victory Day, 28 September 2009.

Reporting about the new course on Maharishi Global Family Chat** was Dr Wojtek Skalski, Deputy Minister of Architecture for the Global Country of World Peace.

Dr Skalski continued, explaining that each of the four sessions comprising the Vastu Coordinator Training Course is further divided into lessons of 20 to 30 minutes. Lessons will be conducted by experts and leaders including Dr Bevan Morris, Prime Minister of the Global Country of World Peace; Raja John Hagelin, Raja of Invincible America; Dr Eike Hartmann, Minister of Architecture; and Dr Volker Schanbacher, Minister of Education, among others.

Each lesson features an introduction by Dr Hartmann, as well as a section following the lecture in which participants submit comments and reactions. 'In this way, we can monitor the level to which students are engaged in the coursework,' said Dr Skalski.

He went on to add that Dr Hartmann devoted months to the construction of course material, including the lesson introductions, the lessons themselves, and the area for submitting comments after lessons. In devising the course structure, Dr Hartmann consulted Dr Susie Dillbeck, leading international expert on Consciousness-Based Education programmes and curricula.

The technical side of the course was prepared mainly by Dr Roger Audet, Surveyor General for the Global Country of World Peace, including creating a system for accessing course lessons online.

Dr Skalski explained that the 9- to 10-hour Vastu Coordinator Course, although self-contained, also constitutes the first phase of the Vastu Consultant Training Course. (Vastu Consultants are those who design Fortune-Creating homes and buildings according to Vedic Architecture.) 'We hope that architects and civil engineers who complete the Coordinator Course will go on to pursue further training to become Consultants,' he said.

The same Vastu Coordinator Training Course will be offered again in less than two months, for those who were unable to enrol in September. Dr Skalski added that translated course materials are in the works for future courses, so far in Japanese, Russian, and Spanish. However, it is expected that most Vastu Coordinators will speak English, so as to communicate effectively with clients and the Department of Architecture in MERU, Holland and in the US.

'We are pleased to bring about this new level of training, developed over many months by Dr Hartmann and others, realizing Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's vision for the course structure,' stated Dr Skalski in closing. 'The global Vastu Coordinator Training Course will surely help us move forward towards Maharishi's goal of restructuring the world' in accord with Natural Law.

* Vastu refers to Vastu vidya, Vedic Architecture—the knowledge of designing and constructing Fortune Creating buildings in accord with Natural Law—brought to light from the Vedic Literature as Maharishi Sthapatya Veda by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
