About the School
The Maharishi International School offers an approach to secondary education that has proven over decades to be uniquely effective in developing the intellectual abilities, academic performance, social behavior, and inner happiness of the students; and to benefit society as well.
This education offers study of the traditional school subjects in light of the knowledge of the full potential of human consciousness, together with a technology for directly developing the consciousness of every student—their latent brain potential—so that they awaken to the experience of total knowledge within themselves.
With this approach, as the students are learning the different subjects, they are becoming more alert, more intelligent and creative, less stressed, more tolerant and harmonious, and more receptive, so that with increasing ease and enjoyment they absorb and apply the knowledge they are gaining.
The technology for the development of consciousness used in Maharishi International School is the Transcendental Meditation technique and its advanced practice, the TM-Sidhi program, including Yogic Flying, from Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
Hundreds of scientific research studies document the benefits of this technology for mind, body, behavior, relationships, and society.
Particularly significant for society is the repeated finding that when large groups practice the TM-Sidhi Yogic Flying program together in one place, negative and disorderly social trends measurably decrease and positive trends increase. With a critical number of Yogic Flyers in the country, here in Switzerland only 280 Yogic Flyers are needed, the whole national consciousness becomes so integrated that no detrimental or weakening influences from within the country or outside its borders can take hold—the nation becomes increasingly invincible.
Academic Excellence without Stress
The unique and highly rewarding experience at Maharishi School is that students learn and progress in life without incurring the stress and pressure that is currently prevalent at all levels of modern education.
More than this, they succeed brilliantly in whatever they undertake. A record of the success of Maharishi School is contained in the Achievements Section of this website, and is also documented in a new book—A Record of Excellence: The Remarkable Success of Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment—by the Head of Maharishi School, Dr. Ashley Deans.
The teachers, the school curriculum, and the peaceful, harmonious school climate are supportive of this goal of providing a stress-free education. The primary means of accomplishing it is through the students’ daily practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique, which enlivens the total creative potential of the brain physiology as a preparation and basis for the process of learning.
Expanded awareness and a healthy, rested body are the basis for successful learning, skill in action, and ideal citizenship. The Consciousness-Based education – Unified Field based education - offered at Maharishi International School creates a firm foundation for both personal and professional success in life.
