An Education Leaders' Course for those wishing to make Consciousness-Based Education more widely available was recently held in Togo.
Raja Graham de Freitas, Raja of Invincible Togo for the Global Country of World Peace, reported on the success of the conference, which drew participants not only from Togo, but also from Senegal, Burkina Faso, Mali, and Côte D'Ivoire.
Among participants in the four-day course was the director of a nearby private school. There may soon be a Consciousness-Based Education programme in his school, said Raja Graham.
Also attending was a lady from Côte D'Ivoire who has been leading the programmes of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in her country for more than 25 years, as well as two ladies who plan to become Transcendental Meditation Teachers in the near future.
Everyone enjoyed the conference and deeply appreciated the knowledge presented, Raja Graham said. He thanked the many French-speaking people around the world who made this course possible by translating over 150 pages of written materials just weeks before the course was scheduled to begin.
The media came on the last day of the conference, Raja Graham said. Togo's National Director of the Global Country was offered a weekly television show to talk about Maharishi's programmes, a very well-written article came out in a top newspaper, and there was also a report about the conference on prime time television.
One reporter expressed the desire to learn Transcendental Meditation, Raja Graham said.
In the coming days, Global Good News will feature the continuation of Raja Graham's report about the expansion of Maharishi's programmes in Togo.
* Raja Graham de Freitas's report was featured on the 3 June 2010 Maharishi Global Family Chat, broadcast daily via Internet webcast on the Maharishi Channel, Channel 3. Podcasts of the daily Global Family Chat (audio track) are also now available for automatic download, via an RSS feed.
