About the course

MERU is delighted to invite all meditators to explore Maharishi’s Total Knowledge with Dr Peter Warburton to start the New Year. Held for an international audience, with translations in Arabic, Russian, and other languages based on demand, part one of this special online course includes deep insights into the development of higher states of consciousness.

Over twelve sessions, participants will enjoy a refinement of experience and understanding of higher states of consciousness — appreciating more and more the profound truth that consciousness itself is the field of Total Knowledge, the field of all possibilities. The course features an inspiring selection of Maharishi’s talks, as well as discussion, exercises, and engaging personal stories of life with Maharishi to illustrate the knowledge for everyone.

Thousands of participants have joined the online edition of this course, and it has been a phenomenal success. Apply now for this international, multilingual course, and join us for the free introductory session of 18 January for an inspiring overview.

About Dr Warburton

Dr Peter Warburton is Chief Executive of Maharishi Foundation in the UK as well as the leader of numerous sister organisations in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. In 2005 Dr Warburton was awarded the title of ‘Raja’ (administrator) by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the founder of the Transcendental Meditation programme. He worked closely with Maharishi for 36 years, and from 2004-2008, Maharishi personally trained Dr Warburton to offer courses on Total Knowledge.

Dr Warburton has also been the leading organiser for the International Young Meditators’ Course (IYMC) for the past ten years, and has taken an active role in sharing Maharishi’s profound knowledge with the younger generations. Dr Warburton happily invites all those who have attended the IYMC over the past ten years, and feels the participants will greatly enjoy this celebration of knowledge.

Dr Warburton says: ‘This unique Total Knowledge course, designed by Maharishi, is actually a systematic and enjoyable curriculum to unfold in the participants’ awareness the profound knowledge that is being presented.’

What course participants say

‘Most enjoyable course, ever. Thank you, Dr Warburton, for presenting Maharishi’s knowledge in such a clear, concise, and succinct manner.’ 

– P.F.

‘Using Zoom felt very intimate, as if Raja Peter was speaking both one-to-one and collectively. I loved that it was so interactive and that we could ask questions. I feel my programme has deepened as a consequence, which is beautiful.”

– Jill Greenacre

‘In every way I have been deeply touched. I profoundly appreciate Dr Warburton’s way of Being — his gentle way of teaching and helping us to not just learn the knowledge but become the knowledge.’

– M.G.

‘I loved the magnificent charts, both for their beauty and for their ability to clarify my understanding of the material covered so skilfully by Dr Warburton.’

– B.D.

‘This course has been such a tonic in these uncertain times. I have experienced subtle changes in my physiology which I attribute to the course. Thank you so much to all for such a beautiful experience and awakening.’
