Maharishi International University (MIU) student Henry Gonzales Ortiz hails from Bogota, Colombia, where he studied classical music at Juan N. Corpas University. While in college, one of his classmates introduced him to the Transcendental Meditation technique, which he learned in 2015.

Henry’s parents have struggled with health issues, and in 2018 Henry lost his father to cancer. He decided to change direction and pursue training in natural health and prevention. “I realized that life is about healing and learning, and the TM and TM-Sidhi programs have sped up the process,” he said. “When you have access to your inner peace, the learning gets done more easily. I am very grateful for the deep transformation I have experienced.”

He heard about MIU’s online MS in Maharishi AyurVeda and Integrative Medicine program from his TM-Sidhi administrators and enrolled in February 2019. Henry is motivated by the desire to improve his health and help those around him.

“Ayurveda is such an ancient concept, yet it’s also current,” said Henry. “It’s a very profound knowledge that helps you connect with yourself in a way that allows you to be in harmony without much effort.”

Henry has incorporated many of the daily ayurvedic preventative measures in his life, such as the daily oil massage, and has experienced great improvements. He enjoys the weekly structure of his classes and the focus on understanding the material, while at the same time maintaining a stress-free learning process.

In addition to pursuing the online program at MIU, Henry is exploring other forms of preventative therapies, such as energy medicine, yoga, and local medicinal herbs.

Once he graduates he would like to have a practice integrating Maharishi AyurVeda and local herbalism. In his free time, he contributes to a music blog by compiling a playlist of songs.
