The Excellence in Action page of Global Good News is featuring a profile of Maharishi University of Management alumnus Shane Zisman, who credited not only his excellent academic record at MUM and Vermont Law School for receiving several job offers, but also his consciousness-related work, his daily Transcendental Meditation practice, and the benefits of those efforts.

He accepted a position at Earth Open Source, a nonprofit organization that supports agro-ecological, farmer-based systems that conserve soil, water, and energy and that produce healthy and nutritious food free from unnecessary toxins. The organization's funding goes mainly into scientific research, policy formulation, and sustainable rural development.

As program officer, Shane works on projects that are largely international and center on sustainable rural development. He has shepherded several agricultural development initiatives forward, including one recent effort to help an eroding medicinal herb farm in the forests of Nepal. Over time, he has established several programs that train local farmers in sustainable methods of agriculture.

Shane couldn't be happier doing this kind of work, which uses both his legal skills and his passion for sustainability and social justice. 'I couldn't have scripted a more perfect job for my interests,' he says.
