Maharishi University
    #11284707 - 10/20/09 04:35 PM (8 years, 2 months ago)

My uncle, 21 years old, pretty "hipped" out at this point, goes on a blind date to a Boston Red Sox game. The girl never shows, but another female comes and happens to take the seat. She begins to tell my uncle about Transcendental Mediation. Fast forward to now, my uncle, 57-59 years old, is the Dean of Undergrad Students at Maharishi University. He did his PHD dissertation proving how TM stimulates creativity, where as before it was thought to prohibit it.

For as long as i can remember my uncle has been working at this university. Last time I was in Iowa, I think they were living on campus. I was in 5th grade (23 now). His oldest daughter, attends school there now.

More, or less, the mission statement of the school is;

Consciousness-Based education. Active learning. Sustainability. Transcendental Meditation course. Natural health program. Organic vegetarian meals. One course at a time. Accredited by The Higher Learning Commission. We welcome transfer students... and students of all ages.


Check it out !

Cool. Looks like David Lynch is coming to lecture in November.

Could you say anything about the Vedic Science programs?

Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun

haha, I couldn't, but my uncle could if you'd like to speak with him

he is the chair of the department of vedic sciences and still teaches the subject, has lots of research published on the subject as well, and his dissertation was testing the field model of maharishi's vedic psychology


that is his website with some more information on the subject(s)

glad someone was a little interested!!!!!

Looks sick nigga.

If they had a D1 Ice Hockey Program I'd be there.

The fire and spoke loud with pride
