The Transcendental Meditation website for Algeria, launched in 2010, is in process of being upgraded to reflect North African culture, said Atmane Kouider, director of the programme in that country. Mr Kouider recently described highlights of the organization's current activities and plans for expanding its programmes in the region.
Professionals in photography, video, and web design are collaborating to produce a high-quality website that will give people in Algeria access to a comprehensive array of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's knowledge and programmes.
