Maharishi Vedic Leadership Forum—Recap

36 young participants representing 22 countries attended the first Maharishi Vedic Leadership Forum from 15 August to 25 August, 2017 to immerse themselves in deep Vedic knowledge, long meditation, and Alpine adventure in the beautiful town of Zermatt, Switzerland. 

This course, Maharishi's most advanced course on Vedic Leadership, provided deep insight into the mechanics of Unity Consciousness and consciousness-based leadership which enjoys the full support of all the Laws of Nature. Raja John and Sara Konhaus led the course brilliantly, while Raja Felix of Switzerland was our wonderful host. 

The next Phase 1 of the Maharishi Vedic Leadership Forum will be from Friday 11 May to Friday 18, 2018 at the Peace Palace in Rendelsham, UK. Phase 2 of the course will be in Zermatt (Switzerland) from July 30 to August 9, 2018.

European Young Meditators Course 2017 —
A personal account by Carlos Cervantes

The European Young Meditators Course this year was fantastic! Almost 50 young people from a variety of countries enjoyed the blissful atmosphere of the newly finished Maharishi Peace Palace in Rendlesham, UK.

We were incredibly fortunate to have Raja Peter leading the course for the seventh year running. He spent decades working directly with Maharishi and is full of wonderfully unique stories and knowledge.

If you have never been on a rounding course before it is an experience not to be missed, with deep meditations, profound rest, new life-long friends and delicious organic ayurvedic food. I returned home full of energy, vitality, and an enthusiasm that so far has lasted for weeks.

Watch Simone and others share some personal highlights from the course below.

As a fortunate surprise, Raja Peter informed us that for next year's course we're close to securing a big hotel directly on the beach in Mamaia, Romania from 8th to 18th September 2018 – this time with potentially hundreds of young people joining from all over the world. So mark your calendar!

(Thus, in 2018 the "European Young Meditators Course" will become the "International Young Meditators Course"! Details will be announced soon in a forthcoming newsletter.)
