Reviews from the April/May Course in the UK

“This course has been such a tonic in these uncertain times. Raja Peter is a wonderful teacher, and his clear descriptions of the higher states of consciousness, coupled with his fascinating personal stories of working alongside Maharishi, have been both comforting and exhilarating. During the last few weeks I have experienced subtle changes in my physiology which I attribute to the course. Thank you so much to all for such a beautiful experience and awakening.” –JE

“The course was very clear and a big surprise and revelation for me. I had no idea the Knowledge offered went so deep. Raja Peter is an exceptional teacher, at all levels. My meditation seems to have gone to a different level now. I feel so blessed to have been offered all this, like a big opening in my life.” —FB

“I thoroughly enjoyed the casual, family environment that was created by Raja Peter. The personal stories were informative and added a unique and engaging perspective to the coursework. The course material was intriguing all the way along. As a relatively new TM student, I was engrossed for the entire course.” —YI

“First of all, Raja Peter is an excellent teacher, he as a gift to the word; to finally know what is ‘behind’ the Transcendental Meditation, a meditation that changed my life; to be able to do this course in this critical time of our life.” —PP

“I liked hearing about Raja Peter’s experiences, particularly with Maharishi. I enjoyed hearing new viewpoints about architecture and health etc. Raja Peter made the path to unity consciousness sound wonderful.” —BC

“I loved being immersed in the knowledge … using Zoom felt very intimate, as if Raja Peter was speaking both one-to-one and collectively. I loved that it was so interactive and that we could ask questions. … I loved Raja Peter’s clear, calm explanations and his wonderful stories. … Closing it with Maharishi speaking very near to the end of his life was very moving. … I feel my program has deepened as a consequence, which is beautiful.” –JG

“Just wanted to thank you personally for your Total Knowledge course. I’ve been really enjoying finding the additional vocabulary to express what I feel. I love the ease and skill in how you deliver Maharishi’s message. I greatly look forward to going deeper into the knowledge. Many, many thanks.” –MB

“Loved the course. It has opened up a new world where I feel far more settled and in tune with my own body and environment. I realize it is only early days but I can genuinely feel the benefits of the regular meditation. The Total Knowledge Course has enhanced my experience and opened up a whole new world of possibilities. I am very keen to explore further and will definitely be signing up for the next course.” –JB

“Over the weekend I listened again to all the recordings. I had thought I understood everything, but what I experienced is that a veil was removed and things I had heard many times I now live. Nothing to do with logic, it is living that knowledge.” —AM

“In my profession I go to many, many courses and I must say the Total Knowledge course is the first course in my life that went well beyond all my expectations. Thank you.” —MB

“I cannot describe the experiences, the fineness of emotions, the bliss I live in after attending this course.” —AK
