Advanced Maharishi Yoga Āsana Teacher Training for Governors of the Age of Enlightenment:
Deepening Our Understanding of Maharishi Yoga for Creating Physiological Balance and Mind-Body Coordination for Ideal Health and Well-Being
(A course for Teachers of the Transcendental Meditation programme)
This course offers systematic training and deepest understanding in Maharishi Yoga Āsana and was developed in 2012 in order to train Certified Governors how to teach the Maharishi Yoga Āsana 16-lesson course with expertise and confidence. As well, it gives Governors confidence to demonstrate the Maharishi Yoga Āsana to Meditators who attend Residence Courses.
Learning the practice of Yoga through Maharishi’s teaching gives a comprehensive understanding of the nature of Yoga—the unification of individual and Cosmic Life—as well as practical training in Yoga postures (Āsana) and breathing exercises (Prāṇāyāma) that promote integration of mind and body, supporting health by bringing life into harmony with Natural Law.
Participants will receive thorough training in teaching the 16-lesson course on Yoga Āsana, demonstrating the postures and giving knowledge about the influence of each posture on the physiology. They will experience and understand Yoga Āsana and Prāṇāyāma on a whole new level of depth and gain the necessary experience to teach others.
Gudrun Buchzik is the only lady teacher trained to teach this Yoga Āsana Teacher Training Course, under the auspices of Maharishi College of Perfect Health. She has taken a three-year training course and has taught at least seven Yoga Āsana Teacher Training Courses. She has also had experience teaching this course with Mother Divine in Thailand.
If you have already taken the 16-lesson course on Maharishi Yoga Āsana, there is still much to gain from this Maharishi Yoga Āsana Teacher Training Course.
Course Participants report striking differences/breakthroughs in their physiology as well as on the level of consciousness. One Course Participant said that the moment her posture was corrected and her spine was aligned, suddenly all gates in her physiology opened and the intelligence could flow unrestrictedly. This led to very blissful experiences.

Natural Law Based Art:
Creative Expression and Techniques of Composition—Painting in Light of Maharishi Science of Consciousness: Fulfilling the purpose of art through expressions that inspire evolution, refine perception, and enrich the environment.
(Course for lady Meditators, Sidhas, and Governors)
This course offers an introduction to the principles of art based on Natural Law as brought out by Maharishi and described in the ancient Vedic Literature. These deepest principles of art are universal, precise, and comprehensive and can be applied to abstract, figurative, and landscape painting. 
You will enjoy an overview of Indian art and aesthetics, studying not only the principles but also how these art forms enliven consciousness. During the course, participants will gain practical knowledge and experience for developing their own creativity as well as the skill in applying design, composition principles, and painting techniques. Participants will also learn procedures for successful landscape painting, including painting techniques to create compelling compositions of natural scenery. Everyone is warmly invited to join; no previous art training is necessary.
If you have already studied art and would like to deepen your knowledge and skills, you are also warmly invited to join this course; you will receive artwork assignments according your skills as well as individual coaching.
In addition to gaining theoretical knowledge of art and practical artwork, participants will enjoy group practice of the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi Programme. This course is taught in the light of Maharishi’s Science of Consciousness and includes beautiful video-recorded lectures of Maharishi speaking on art. At each step of learning, the key principles of art are connected to the development of higher states of consciousness.

Living Higher States of Consciousness 
(A course for Meditators, Sidhas, and Governors)
This is a new course with advanced lectures by Maharishi on higher states of consciousness. Maharishi explains the process of the refinement of perception from Transcendental Consciousness to Unity Con­scious­ness; the reality of Brahman Consciousness; and the relationship between higher states of consciousness and God. This profound and heart-expanding knowledge is of special relevance for ladies—mothers of the world.
There will be extended time for Transcendental Meditation and the TM-Sidhi Programme, opening our awareness to the pure field of Creative Intelligence—rest and activity to structure the steps of evolution to Unity Consciousness.
A Course Participant wrote: ‘This course in Seelisberg was for me a great enrichment in many ways. Maharishi’s unique knowledge, combined with deep meditation programme, and the lovely atmosphere at this wonderful place together with the Mother Divine group was for me a true pleasure. The course enlivened, renewed, richly blessed, and uplifted me. This course is very recommendable.

(A course for Meditators, Sidhas, and Governors)
This course will include the grand Celebration of Guru Pūrṇimā on the 8th of July—the annual global celebration on the Full Moon of July, honouring the eternal Vedic Tradition of Total Knowledge.
As a thirsty man arrives at a well, so I arrived at the feet of my Master. The quest of a perfect Master was there. The first sight of his personality was enough to make me surrender at his feet. He was the most highly revered sage in India and was held as the embodiment of divine consciousness.

(A course for Sidhas and Governors of the Age of Enlightenment)
Advanced Vision of Maharishi’s Apaurusheya Bhāshya
Maharishi’s Commentary on Ṛk Veda, Apaurusheya Bhāshya, brings to light the mechanics of evolution of Natural Law. It explains how the WHOLENESS of Natural Law—the unmanifest, eternal ocean of self-referral consciousness—gives rise to the sequential, orderly unfoldment of specific Laws of Nature in the Veda and the entire manifest universe.
Maharishi, the teacher of this course, invites distinguished scientists and scholars to draw parallels from their various fields of science, to identify and elucidate the principles of Nature’s functioning from the different perspectives of modern science.
In sequence as we go on inspecting the structure of the whole Veda, we come out to see a very intelligent and perfect sequential progression of the tree of knowledge from the seed of knowledge. As from any seed, which has compactly contained within its nature the whole diversity of the tree, the sprouting comes out, and this grows into a tree, and the whole thing comes out into a tree, and all the fruits come out from there. So, in order to enjoy the fruit of all knowledge, we have to develop the state of all knowledge in our consciousness, and the way to do it is the Sidhi Programme.
—Maharishi, 20 February 1982
Advanced Vision of Maharishi’s Apaurusheya Bhāshya, Boppard, Germany
5 – 12 August 2017 (6-day course, not including arrival and departure days)
Maharishi’s Apaurusheya Bhāshya, Personal Experience of the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, and Principles of Modern Science: 
These three angles of investigation together provide a clear vision of the mechanics of Natural Law in the unmanifest GAP between each expression of the Veda, which structures the Veda and the whole creation.
This one-week course is the first part (Theme One) of a very special three-part advanced course.
A previous course participant writes: ‘After many years of regular practice of the TM-Sidhi Programme, the Apaurusheya Bhāshya course definitely improved my understanding of Maharishi’s cognition of the Veda as the source of all creation, the unmanifest field of all possibilities, infinite silence and infinite dynamism. As a result, my daily Sidhi Programme has naturally been revised and enriched. All this was possible on the steady basis of the silence I experienced at Mother Divine’s home of silence in Seelisberg.
At the end of this course there will be a possibility of an extension to Theme Two and Three.
