An anonymous TMFB reader has sent me an email promoting an upcoming Transcendental Meditation® Teacher Training Course (TTC) to be offered at Maharishi Vedic City, Iowa, from September 30, 2009 to February 17, 2010
Some info from the email:
- "Please feel free to forward this message to any Meditator and Sidha you know."
- It appears the structure of Phase I, II, and III has been done away with. Citizen Sidhas will become teachers after a single, 4 1/2-month course. (There are special arrangements being made for applicants who do not have the sidhis.)
- "Each course participant is required to indicate before the course which Maharishi Invincibility Center they will associate with after graduation."
- "There will be separate courses for men and ladies." No mention of special arrangements for couples.
- "TTC fee is US $14,500." Courses in the 19070s cost about $4,000, however allowing for inflation, the course actually costs less than in the past.
- "Transportation to and from the course, visa application fee, health care insurance, and any other personal expenses are the responsibility of each course participant."
- "For more information about the course,... please contact the following: For US citizens: email@example.com; For Canadian citizens: firstname.lastname@example.org."
Please note that TMFB does not recommend involvement with any Transcendental Meditation program. This material is presented only to educate and to spur discussion.
With our very best wishes
