The Excellence In Action page of Global Good News is featuring this article about three Maharishi University of Management students who competed in the National Undergraduate Mock Mediation Tournament in Arlington, Texas, last month. The tournament was sponsored by the International Academy of Dispute Resolution.

The team of Tal Ron (from Israel), Mirah Dumasia (from New Zealand), and Almar Meijles (from the Netherlands) was one of only four teams to qualify for the semi-finals in both the mediator category and the advocate/client category, and they took seventh place in both categories.

''Mediation is a very useful skill which facilitates a conversation between both sides, and it creates a safe environment to express each side's problems with the other and to come to a resolution that both sides are happy with,' said Mirah Dumasia.

Students found that the practice of Transcendental Meditation made them more effective mediators. ''Transcendental Meditation helps me become very sensitive to my environment,'' said Almar Meijles. 'Knowing how people behave and react is quite crucial if you want to respond to them appropriately.''
