About Us

knowledge is structured in consciousness


Maharishi Mahesh Yogi Founder of the (now) Maharishi Free School, who introduced the Transcendental Meditation program to the world 50 years ago


Transcendental Meditation

Transcendental Meditation is a simple, effortless and enjoyable, mental technique for developing the full potential of the individual. It provides a unique experience of rest to both mind and body, a state of restful alertness. This helps balance to be restored and allows stress and tiredness to be removed.

Transcendental Meditation (TM) is the cornerstone of Consciousness-based Education. All teaching and office staff at Maharishi School practice the technique and pupils meditate in the class as part of their school day.

TM has been scientifically validated in over 500 studies, including those in educational settings. These studies quantify the effects both during, and as a result of, this simple mental technique. Many have appeared in peer-reviewed scientific and medical journals. For more information click here.

David Lynch Portrait

“I have had the pleasure of meeting many students who are practising Transcendental Meditation and experiencing Consciousness-based Education.They are amazing: self-sufficient, energetic, blissful, creative, powerfully intelligent and peaceful human beings.

Meeting these students, for me, was the proof that Consciousness-based Education is a profoundly good thing for our schools and for our world.”

David Lynch, Founder of  The David Lynch Foundation

“I am sure that the Maharishi Free School will improve choice and raise standards, and will become recognised as a flagship of the Free School Programme.”

LORD HILL, Former Under Secretary of State for Education



“We chose the Maharishi School because of Consciousness based Education and Transcendental Meditation. We believe this results in a child who is calm and less stressed, developing an individual of high self-esteem contributing to society in a positive way. We are delighted to attest to the proof of this in our own children. Many thanks to the Maharishi School and all that it stands for.”
