About the Author Cont.

Dr. Ashley Deans


It was around this time that I attended a science conference in Ottawa, Canada, at which researchers were presenting their findings on the Transcendental Meditation technique. Maharishi Mahesh Yogi was the keynote speaker. During his address, it dawned on me that Maharishi was unfolding knowledge that had been missing from my education—the scientific understanding of human consciousness. The scientists presented research showing that the simple technique of Transcendental Meditation, a technique for the development of consciousness, provides a means to address previously intractable problems in such diverse fields as education, health, crime prevention and rehabilitation, and international relations.

After completing my Ph.D., I traveled to Europe to take a course to become a teacher of the Transcendental Meditation program. There I met scientists who were thinking along the same lines as I was. It was becoming clear to me that consciousness holds the key to understanding the universe and our place in it.

After teaching the Transcendental Meditation program in Canada for several years, I joined the physics department at Maharishi University of Management. There I did research on Unified Field theories and their relationship to the structure of consciousness.

After seven years, I was offered the job of director of Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment. Here was my chance to help children have the education that I had always wanted—an education that unfolds complete knowledge of the inner Self and the outer universe—Total Knowledge—for a fulfilling, productive, and successful life.
