In a continent with thousands of students practising Transcendental Meditation already, another school in Latin America has started to implement Consciousness-Based Education, and thus will add to the total of meditators creating coherence and harmony in society.
The latest school is in Peru. This school is unique among dozens that have begun Consciousness-Based Education because it is the first boarding school in Latin America to implement Transcendental Meditation into the school's daily routine.
In this school, children live on school grounds the whole year, thus their lives are very intertwined with their schooling. For this reason, Transcendental Meditation teachers and educators felt that having a programme to release stress and increase creativity would be of additional benefit for these students.
The first group of children to learn Transcendental Meditation will be made up of 900 students. But because the school is offering support to their Consciousness-Based Education programme, providing assistance in the evenings and on the weekends, the utilization of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's educational technologies could increase.
In other news from Latin America, Dr Alarik and Dr Cynthia Arenander are coming to the continent on 24 and 25 February. They will be giving their latest course, a highly acclaimed presentation of a new model, developed with Maharishi's guidance, of Veda (total knowledge of Natural Law) in human physiology.
The course was first given in Iowa, USA to packed houses of eager participants. It was so successful that the Arenanders felt compelled to take it on the road, sharing the knowledge and experience with a broader audience.
Lastly, in a bit of worldwide good news which is of particular relevance to Latin America, an article from Reuters begins, 'Despite economic woes, wars, conflicts and natural disasters the world is a happier place today than it was four years ago.'
The article goes on to remark that Mexico is one of the top five most-contented countries and regionally, Latin America had the highest number of happy people.
Transcendental Meditation teachers in the region feel that such news is a sign of the increasing success of Maharishi's technologies of consciousness promoting positive, life-supporting trends throughout Latin America.
