Who am I, and how am I connected to everything around me?
Ancient teachers looked within themselves to find answers to answer questions like: “Who am I?” “Where am I going?” “How can I become more creative and develop my full potential?”
Explore your inner consciousness as you investigate current and traditional perspectives on human potential
Leading scientists suggest that consciousness is as fundamental to life as time and space. Vedic science describes consciousness as even more fundamental, existing in and by itself, independent of any personal owner. These perspectives on consciousness are integrated by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in Maharishi Vedic Science, which forms the basis for this program. (see video)
Probing your connection with the world
In this program, you will probe the furthest reaches of neuroscience, physics, and social sciences by examining the interaction between brain functioning and consciousness, parallels between the unified field of physics and the field of consciousness, and the connection between individual and collective consciousness.
Profound personal development
Gain direct experience of your universal nature through procedures such as the Transcendental Meditation® technique, Maharishi YogaSM asanas, reading Vedic literature in Sanskrit, self-pulse reading—as part of a transformative daily routine. Deeper inner experiences give a new platform to understand theoretical discussions of the full range of consciousness.
