Dr. Deans Shares Consciousness-Based Education in Nigeria

Greetings from Nigeria!

I am on a tour of eight countries in Africa with my son Aubrey (class of 2002) speaking about Maharishi School, Maharishi University of Management, and Consciousness- Based education.  Here is a photo of Aubrey with a meditator and her daughter at the press conference in Lagos. He was the tour photographer so he doesn't appear in many photos!

We arrived in Abuja, the capital city of Nigeria, which is a new capital near the middle of the country. He we landed we saw a 747 with red carpet leading from gangway and many people celebrating. Presumably President Lucky Jonathon returning from an official visit. The immigration line was long, snaking out of the customs hall and up the stairs. We were happy to get through and see the smiling face of Dr. Margaret Obomanu  (photo right), the president of Maharishi Foundation of Nigeria who had arranged many appointments with leaders of government including the permanent secretary of education (photo left). He holds a Ph.D. in chemistry and understood Maharishi’ s program very clearly. He gave us permission to visit schools in Nigeria and he also introduced us to other leaders in government.

We drove to Asaba, which is near the birthplace of Dr. Obomanu, where she has built the first Vastu house in Nigeria. We lectured at local schools where we received a very enthusiastic response. The students there loved hearing about the achievements of our Maharishi School students. We also spoke with government officials and tribal leaders. In the photo above Dr. Obomanu is at center, with an enthusiastic principal and school children.

We continued our tour by driving to Ibadan where we lectured at the university and met with several traditional kings. They understood immediately the importance of reconnecting individual intelligence with the totality of nature’ s intelligence in the unified field. We then met with reporters in Lagos and flew on to Accra in Ghana.

Many thanks to Raja Bruce Plaut, Raj Rajeshwari Nigeria, and Dr. Obomanu, National Director of Maharishi Foundation Nigeria, for organizing such a great tour.
