From Dr. Beall, School Head: This is my last blog from China, but not about China.

The Drive to Thrive

Dr. Beall's Blog: I just sat down to meditate yesterday when the thought popped, “That’s why I feel so at home in China!” We’ve had three school fairs where interested students or parents approach our table to learn more about Maharishi School and we about them.

The clock? It's still ticking, but now it's recording memories of our days in China.  The Great Wall We've been here four days and haven't stopped moving.
