The benefits of Maharishi Free School in Lancashire, England extend far beyond the classroom. Not only are new students who just enrolled this year enjoying school—often for the first time—but their families are also noticing more joyous interactions at home.
All students at Maharishi Free School practise Transcendental Meditation. As a requirement of their children's enrolment, parents also learn the technique.
'Some of the adults say they would never have thought of taking up Transcendental Meditation except if this opportunity at the school had come about,' said an administrator of the Transcendental Meditation Programme in the UK. 'But they're so glad that they did, now that they're experiencing the benefits.'
A teacher at Maharishi Free School said, 'The parents come to follow-up meetings every week. They appreciate the peaceful atmosphere and enjoy meditating together.'
In addition to enjoying their experiences with meditation, families have noticed an improvement in daily life.
The same teacher continued, 'Many say their family life has been transformed, with everyone getting on better together. Several mothers have said that their children have spontaneously said, ''I love you, Mummy''.'
'Many times parents have stopped me in the playground as I'm coming to school,' another teacher said, 'saying the one thing they hadn't expected was how the practice of Transcendental Meditation has changed their home lives. With parents as well as children practising the technique, their home life is becoming more balanced as a result.'
'This is a fantastic thing to hear,' said Head Teacher Dr Derek Cassells. 'Of course we wanted the children to practise Transcendental Meditation for the effects on their education, but the fact that their family life is also so much better is wonderful.'
