The knowledge and experience of Maharishi University of Management's vibrant community and Consciousness-Based Education have given alumnus Michael Cook a strong foundation for transforming neighborhoods in a positive way.

Michael is a 2008 graduate of MUM with a BS in Sustainable Living, who currently lives in Portland, Oregon. He volunteers for City Repair, an organization dedicated to educating and inspiring communities to transform their neighborhoods. Through his volunteering, Michael has found employment in natural building as well as public speaking at universities and city planning meetings. He encourages city planners to empower community members to build structures they want and provide them with support.

Michael also spoke at this year's EcoFair at MUM. 'It's very satisfying to be engaging the principles of Maharishi Vedic Science, expressing those values in this new setting,' Michael says. 'We are looking at the word ''community'' in a different sense. It's not just a group of people, it's a profound experience that's shared by all, that is joyful, blissful, and sustainable.'
