Benefits for students and teachers

Education today places emphasis on the subjects that students study, without systematically developing the qualities students need not only for success in school, but for success throughout life: alertness, intelligence, creativity, energy, confidence, integrity, and happiness. These qualities naturally develop through Transcendental Meditation as the students experience the inner field of their own total potential and express it in daily life. As a result, students enjoy increasing success in every aspect of their life and a sense of expanding possibilities for what they can achieve. Learn more at the Maharishi School, Reservoir.
