In response to strong interest from the Indo-American community in the U.S., Maharishi School will offer Vedic Education Week this summer June 16-22.
"These parents are eager to have their children remember their Indian heritage," said Christine Albers, director of expansion at Maharishi School. "They urged us to offer a summer camp so their children could learn some of what the students at Maharishi School are learning."
In the mornings parents and their children (grades 7-12) will have the opportunity to learn the Transcendental Meditation technique, Maharishi Yoga asanas and pranayama, basic Sanskrit, Maharishi Vedic Mathematics, and Maharishi Ayur-Veda, including the Maharishi Self-Pulse program.
In the afternoons, the students will be able to participate in recreational activities such as tennis, basketball, golf, volleyball, and soccer.
The afternoon program for adults will include an introduction to Maharishi Vedic Science, Veda in human physiology, the Vastu Vidya program (architecture in harmony with Natural Law), and more. In the evenings participants will enjoy picnics, celebrations, and various speakers.
Interest in Consciousness-Based Education and the depth of Vedic knowledge in the Maharishi University of Management and Maharishi Vedic City communities surged this past year among Indo-Americans in the U.S.
Due in part to the influence of an Indian family in St. Louis whose children attended Maharishi School in the past, the Indo-American community in that city sent 60 members of an Indian youth group to visit last fall.
In addition, the Global Peace Initiative brought a group of Indo-American visitors from Chicago last fall to attend a Vedic weekend. Plus, this April a group of 65 Indo-Americans will be coming from Minnesota.
Several Indo-American organizations have helped to structure Vedic Education Week, Ms. Albers said, including leaders of the Hindu Mandir Executive Council, visitors from Balvihar Youth Group, and parents around the U.S.
