Several schools and universities in Finland have begun incorporating the Transcendental Meditation Programme among faculty and students, as the result of a tour of the country by Dr Ashley Deans, Global Ambassador for Consciousness-Based Education, in February 2010.

During his visit to Finland, Dr Deans met with educational leaders in Helsinki, including authorities responsible for Swedish-speaking education within the nation. 'These leaders were extremely receptive to Consciousness-Based Education,' reported Raja Pat Barrett,* Raja of Invincible Finland for the Global Country of World Peace. The positive attitude of this educational department, he said, could be attributed in part to the successes of Maharishi's programmes in Sweden.

At a university of applied sciences in Helsinki, faculty members have already begun learning Transcendental Meditation in the wake of Dr Deans' February visit. In fall 2010, additional faculty will learn the technique, as well as a pilot group of university students. Raja Pat explained that these students will comprise part of a research study on the effects of TM practice on university dropouts.

Finally, in Finland, three teachers recently learnt Transcendental Meditation at a special children's school for careers in theatre and the circus.

* Raja Pat Barrett's report was featured on the 26 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.
