Scott Morris grew up in Huntsville, Alabama, USA, and created his political economics degree while studying in the New College interdisciplinary arts program at the University of Alabama. Traveling in Southeast Asia led him to commit to helping people lift themselves out of poverty.
While working on his capstone presentation, titled ''Paradigm Shift to Peace,'' Scott discovered a book about Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment and the effect of the Transcendental Meditation technique on student performance. After graduation, he attended a Maharishi University of Management Visitors Weekend and, two weeks later, moved to Fairfield, Iowa.
During that Visitors Weekend, he became inspired to pursue the M.A. in Maharishi Vedic Science degree. ''Just the way the Maharishi Vedic Science students spoke alone told me they'd found something deeply valuable,'' said Scott. ''I wanted to experience that for myself and apply it to my work. After the year studying Maharishi Vedic Science, I feel capable of realizing my self as Self, as well as the more sustainable, socially just, and economically equitable world we know in our hearts to be possible.''
Scott has also created volunteer programs for local sustainability causes. ''I want to help people rethink money and fundamentally redefine wealth,'' he said.
