Maharishi University of Management (MUM) neuroscience researcher Fred Travis completed a second tour of Germany last month during which he spoke about the brain and the Transcendental Meditation technique in 10 cities.

He spoke at public venues and universities, with each talk including an EEG demonstration.

"The German Transcendental Meditation movement is very vital and full of energy," Dr. Travis said. "They're moving in many directions to bring the knowledge of Maharishi's programs to every level of German society."

He also found the audiences to be very sincere and receptive, and to think deeply about the lectures.
"They kept me on my toes with their profound questions," Dr. Travis said.

At his public lectures he spoke about total brain function, reduced stress, and enhanced creativity. His more academic presentations focused on assessing higher states of consciousness. All talks reviewed different categories of meditation and how Transcendental Meditation practice changes the brain.

He also had many personal meetings, including two with ministers in Germany's Ministry of Scientific Research and a meeting with faculty from the University of Munich's department of meditation and spirituality.

"I felt like I was home," Dr. Travis said. "I really enjoy the focus, energy, and dynamism of the German people."
