At Maharishi International University (MIU) students focus on an authentic exploration of consciousness.

All knowledge emerges from consciousness—and in a sense everyone is consciousness. At MIU, Consciousness-Based Education connects everything one learns to the underlying wholeness of life.


Each class becomes relevant because the knowledge of that subject is connected with one's own inner nature.


Through MIU’s approach, one also sees how each field of study can be practically applied towards helping create a better world.

Students enliven their innermost Self—pure consciousness—and connect this experience to ancient wisdom and modern science.

"Who you are is more important than what you know." MIU student

“The key to growth is the introduction of higher dimensions of consciousness into our awareness.”
Lao Tzu Chinese philosopher, 6th century BC

“Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.”
Socrates Greek philosopher, 469-399 BC.

There is also a specific major, the BA in Consciousness and Human Potential (CHP), that integrates personal experience, philosophy of mind, neuroscience and ancient wisdom.

MIU's goal for every student is enlightenment—the systematic development of full potential from within. This is the key to true fulfillment in daily life and any career.

Students at MIU learn the Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique. This effortless, evidence-based technique has been scientifically proven to reduce stress, improve health, and help the brain to function optimally, enhancing clear thinking and heightening creativity.

MIU students practice the TM technique daily to integrate the knowledge they’re studying with their direct experience, offering a practical understanding to the concepts they’re exploring in class.
