“Freshen-up” your TM and Deepen your Consciousness.
The pace of everyone’s life seems to be speeding up. We do need a good dose of ‘silent physiology’ regularly. Stress and fatigue in the nervous system prevent us from experiencing our full potential.
Join us for a day of peace and well being. It is a rewarding day. It will deepen your experience of TM.
You leave feeling peaceful and refreshed and ready to tackle anything. The whole day is structured to maximize your personal growth. There is a perfect balance of extra meditation, lectures and discussions, easy Yoga stretch postures and gentle walks.

Yay India! We are going again in March. We spend a week (or more) at the Brahmasthan and then you do some sightseeing in India or come home. Its a fabulous way to experience the deepest spirituality India has to offer with all the support of a trusted network of friends, meditators and sidhas.
Here is some of the feedback on the last trip:
“This has truly been one of the best weeks of my life. I will keep my memories of the Brahmastan close to my heart (and look forward to supporting you in realising Maharishi’s vision for world peace).” Another: “It was an awesome experience.” And another: “It was a great inward experience and will be treasured in my heart of hearts forever.””I am so grateful that you suggested that I go to the Brahmasthan–I really had the most wonderful time. I feel so refreshed and energised. I have been continuing with the program here at home and loving it.” And finally: “I would like to say thank-you very much for organising and encouraging us to do the trip. It really was a fantastic and very special experience and I certainly will be going back.”
