Dr Ashley Deans, an international expert in research and application of Consciousness-Based Education, visited Greece in May as part of a ten-country tour of Europe.

As Global Ambassador for Consciousness-Based Education, Dr Deans has traveled to many countries around the world, addressing educators, students, and government leaders. He is also executive director of the award-winning Maharishi School in Fairfield, Iowa, USA.

While in Greece Dr Deans gave presentations at a large university in Athens, as well as at two highly-regarded colleges and several secondary schools, about Consciousness-Based Education, which is designed to develop students' inner potential while they grow in knowledge. He also gave well-attended lectures at a central hotel in Athens and in the municipality of an eastern suburb of the city.

Students and educators were highly interested in Dr Deans' presentation of scientific research on the Transcendental Meditation Programme, a central component of Consciousness-Based Education—especially many published studies that have found reduced stress, increased intelligence and creativity, greater academic achievement, and increased integration of brain functioning in students practising the technique.

Also compelling were his stories of the success of Consciousness-Based Education, demonstrated for example in the many achievements in academics, sports, and the arts of Maharishi School students of all ages and backgrounds, which are also described in Dr Deans' book, A Record of Excellence.

Many postgraduate students in Greece were very enthusiastic about Transcendental Meditation as a result of Dr Deans' lectures, and learned the technique soon after.
