Nestled in the most scenic region of the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, USA, a community of Maharishi Vastu homes is undergoing a re-enlivenment.

In the mid-1990s the concept of a Maharishi Vastu peace community in northwest North Carolina was born. Named ''Heavenly Mountain'', it would be the first community of Maharishi Vastu homes in the world.

The thousands of acres of forested land that were purchased included sites for two residential campuses/retreats—one for single men and one for single women who wanted to devote their time and attention to meditation in large groups, to create a strong influence of harmony, coherence and peace for the entire country. Both of these campuses were completed by 1999.

From 1996 to 2005 more than 26 private family homes, several multifamily buildings and two community buildings were built according to the principles of Maharishi Vedic architecture, as people became attracted by the proximity of these coherence-creating groups, along with the moderate climate and beauty of the area.

For those who are unfamiliar with this area, Boone and the adjacent towns are considered some of the most scenic regions in the country. The area has an abundance of recreational and cultural activities that showcase its strong heritage as well as its natural beauty.

Global Good News will continue with more on recent developments and the current expansion of the Maharishi Vastu community at Heavenly Mountain.
