Up Colombia: Meditation course gives 106 youth in rehabilitation centre a fresh start Slideshow

19 April 2011

A course in the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme was recently held at one of the youth rehabilitation centres of Father Gabriel Mejia in Colombia. The young participants in this course, who were already practising the Transcendental Meditation Technique, have had very positive experiences with the advanced programme, and their group practice will help bring the nation closer to a permanent state of invincible peace, prosperity, and progress.

The course included 106 participants from among the residents at Father Mejia's centre. These young people came from stressful backgrounds including experiences with crime, drug abuse, and violence. 'When they began practising the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, the profound positive changes in these students were evident on their faces,' said the teacher of the course.

This course, which included instruction in Yogic Flying, was one of several that are aimed at creating a total of 800 Yogic Flyers this year, to create coherence in national consciousness, leading to permanent invincibility for Colombia.

Father Mejia founded his first institution in Colombia 40 years ago, and has now established 52 centres throughout the country and all of Latin America. The programmes of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi have been introduced in the institutions over the last 15 years with great success.
