Maharishi School – Fairfield, Iowa 52557, June 22, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —
In May, a tiny school in Fairfield, Iowa, where all students, teachers and administration meditate, made history by sweeping 3 international and national awards:
1. A Maharishi School team competed against 8000 students from around the world in Destination Imagination, a creative problem-solving competition and finished in 1st place in their category and won the prestigious DaVinci award for outstanding creativity at the Global Finals competition
2. Its Student Rocketry team won $10,000 and 4th place in the national TARC – Team America Rocketry Challenge
3. Science Fair: A Maharishi School sophomore won the Iowa BioGenius Award and competed at the INTEL International Science and Engineering Fair in Los Angeles where he finished in 3rd place in the microbiology category out of 89 entries. His judges included a Nobel Laureate.
The school administration believes the success of their students lies in their unique education approach that incorporates a daily practice of meditation and yoga into their college-preparatory program for day and boarding students. The school uses the Transcendental Meditation® program for developing the student’s consciousness, deep thinking skills, and creativity. Research has validated this approach – showing better academic performance and increased intelligence among students.

Wholeness is from the simple definition, it is everything. Whole, it is holy, there is a holy value, which is holistic. There is wholeness, everything… puts everything together. There are different levels of wholeness, you have the whole is more than the sum of its parts. You get an entity, which is made out of elements. These elements constitute values of that entity. But, you don’t appreciate that entity until you see more than the parts, and you see how the parts come together to form something that is a human being, that is a flower, that is… music or a symphony whatever it is there is a wholeness in that reality.
When we talk about real wholeness it is the wholeness of everything in life, which means when we put all the parts of life together what do we get? When we put the trees with the flowers, with the human beings, with the buildings, with the animals, with the galaxies, with the entire planetary systems and stars and with the details of the people and societies and life as a whole we get the grand wholeness of existence. That is life itself… So it is a way of seeing the totality of life the wholeness of life beyond its specificities.
