Creating Peace Through Peace

The Students Creating Peace Network is a Maharishi Upper School student organization founded in the wake of the September 11th tragedy. It became clear to the students that alternative answers to the way our culture deals with violence were needed.

The mission of the Students Creating Peace Network is to inspire students, parents, and educators to create peace within themselves and then incorporate it into their homes, schools and communities. The students are advocating the use of the Transcendental Meditation technique and the TM-Sidhis program, including Yogic Flying, to naturally develop peace in the individual and his environment.

"Don't waste time talking about peace, engage in creating peace."

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

End School Violence Now is a student organization that is part of the Students Creating Peace Network. Its member's focus is to speak with other youth, parents, teachers and officials about a simple solution to quickly and easily end school violence. The students are convinced of the merits of implementing Consciousness Based Education, including the Transcendental Meditation technique, into any existing school or education program.

The Maharishi School students know, through their own experience of practicing the simple mental technique twice daily at their school, that Consciousness Based Education will not only create a coherent school environment, but also increase IQ, learning ability, and academic performance in students.

The members from Students Creating Peace Network and End School Violence Now have given presentations to many students and educators around the country, including the Columbine Task Force, the California's Teacher's Association, and the University of Western Georgia. They have also addressed over 1,500 people at the United Nations for an event sponsored by the Gandhi-King Foundation.
