Jacky’ learned TM in Windhoek in early 2013. Having had very good results from the practice of the technique from the start, and aware of how much TM can do for the people in Namibia she early on had a strong desire to become a Teacher of TM. In 2015 she returned to Namibia as a certified TM Instructor, after having spent 6 months in intensive training at the TM Organizations’ International Training Academy in Thailand that included instruction in the TM Sidhi Program.
Jacky is a former Assault Pioneer of the Namibian Defense Force working with explosives. As a TM Instructor, she now happy to be able to work towards the safety of her country, in a more positive way by enabling a person to become less stressed, more peaceful, happy, productive and socially responsible from within.

Jan-Willem matriculated at Windhoek High School in 2005, and obtained a B-Tech degree in Music at the Tswane University of Technology in Pretoria. At the end of his final year as a student, he learned the Transcendental Meditation technique in Pretoria, experiencing very good results both in terms of his personal development, as well as when he started working in Windhoek at the College of the Arts in 2013 as a music lecturer, specialising in practical guitar as his main subject.
After 2 years of practicing TM, intrigued by the good results, he decided to go on the 6-months training course in Thailand in October 2014, to become a teacher of Transcendental Meditation. This program also included the instruction of the advanced Transcendental Meditation Sidhi program, which started giving even better results.
After the completion of his teacher training course in Thailand in April 2015, Jan-Willem came back to Windhoek as a Certified TM Instructor, and started teaching part time while maintaining his lecturer post at the College of the Arts.
A full-time TM Instructor from 1973 to 2011, he spent more than 30 years as a volunteer, working directly with the founder of the TM movement, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in various projects in Europe, India, Africa and the Americas.

First based in Johannesburg then shifting to Windhoek in 2013, he started the non-profit Maharishi Development Foundation (Namibia) for teaching TM and CBE programs as a contribution to Namibia and engaged motivating and sponsoring local individuals to take up training as TM Instructors in South Africa and Namibia.
