New Zealand has long had a large and enthusiastic community of Transcendental Meditation practitioners, and one expression of this is found in the use of Consciousness-Based Education in several schools.

A recent visitor related an anecdote about his experience when he went to visit one school project that started two years ago in Auckland.

'I had an assembly with the students and I asked them, ''What is your experience?'' '

The first boy, who was about 10 years old, stood up and said, 'Brilliant.' The next one stood up and said, 'Perfect.' The next one said, 'Healthy.'

The visitor was deeply impressed, and even more when the children next all stood up and started to express their thanks. 'It was an amazing experience,' he said.

'All the teachers meditate. All the students meditate.' This has 'produced a dramatic effect in the whole environment, in the families, and also in the neighborhood.'

The visitor's positive experience at the school is not unique. Recently, in response to an advertising campaign undertaken by the school, leaders in education and in society are visiting the school and also finding themselves greatly impressed by it.
