Dr Ashley Deans, Global Ambassador for Consciousness-Based Education, visited Japan in June, giving presentations to the public and also meeting with educators and officials.
Dr Deans' visit brought inspiration to people in many areas who continue to face great challenges in the aftermath of the earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear disaster earlier this year. His presentations highlighted scientific research documenting beneficial results of the Transcendental Meditation Programme, for example in reducing the effects of traumatic stress and in promoting increased creativity and improved brain functioning.
Educators in different parts of Japan have been learning about benefits of the programme for students, teachers, and school administrators, which have been documented through research and also by the experiences of teachers in many countries, who have found it highly effective in increasing students' intelligence and academic achievements, as well as in reducing teacher 'burnout' and counteracting effects of anxiety and stress.
Dr Deans also presented Maharishi Vastu architecture and city planning as a valuable approach for reconstruction efforts, to promote health, happiness, and good fortune for residents through utilizing time-tested principles of building in accord with Natural Law.
In other news from Japan, after being out of print for several years, the book Science of Being and Art of Living by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of the Transcendental Meditation Programme, has recently been published in Japanese again.
