What if you could start your day grounded and focused?
We give your headspace a little breathing room so that you can start your day with potential.
Every single day, students and teachers at Maharishi School close their eyes for a few minutes to practice the Transcendental Meditation® technique and experience a state of rest that is deeper than sleep.
When your body is rested, powerful chain reactions are set forth. Blood pressure normalizes. Heart rates slow down. The brain gets more oxygen. Big problems become small problems and stress becomes manageable.
At Maharishi School, meditation is the cornerstone of our unique learning model. Imagine driving through a rainy, stormy night without your headlights working. The road is dark and you have to drive with fear, small mistakes almost guaranteed to happen. That’s what our brains and bodies are like on stress.
Getting adequate sleep is like having functional headlights. This is the absolute, bare minimum. You can see what is ahead and the stress lessens, but that drive down a dark road remains challenging. However, practicing the Transcendental Meditation® technique does more—it quiets the stormy mind.
When our bodies and brains are functioning optimally, it’s suddenly like driving on a bright, sunny day where you can see with clarity, move with purpose, and travel beyond your comfort zone without leaving your center.
Research studies show us through neuroplasticity that the mind is not fixed, but expandable. We don’t just fill student’s heads with information, we systematically expand the container of knowledge, the student’s own consciousness. With this expansion, absorbing new ideas becomes simpler, friendships deepen, and you start to understand how you are connected to and interconnected with the world.
We call this Consciousness-Based education. Because expanding consciousness is a game changer.
“If you have a golf ball-sized consciousness, when you read a book you’ll have a golf ball-sized understanding. When you look down, a golf ball-sized awareness. And when you wake up, a golf ball-sized wakefulness. But if you could expand that consciousness, then you read the book with more understanding, you look out with more awareness and when you wake up, more wakefulness. There’s an ocean of pure, vibrant consciousness inside each one of us.”
