The Invincibility Assembly for those practising Maharishi's TM-Sidhi Programme
"Positivity is like light, and negativity is like darkness. Just as a few candles will light a big hall, a few invincible, peaceful countries with groups of Yogic Flyers will create within the coming weeks an invincible, peaceful world."- Maharishi
"After several months of the Invincible America Assembly in 2006, which Maharishi addressed daily for over six months, people began to have supreme experiences of higher states of consciousness, and Maharishi said that the mission for which he had started his Movement was fulfilled. The same programme and sequence of talks today is producing the same results consistently, course after course in the Maharishi Golden Dome [in Skelmersdale], and many people report that they have had the best experiences of their lives." - Dr Peter Warburton, Chairman of the Trustees, Maharishi Foundation, UK
This MOST SPECIAL OF ALL OPPORTUNITIES for practitioners of Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme is available on an ongoing basis both in the UK and in the USA.

Three months or more
Currently, a special offer exists for attending the Assembly at Maharishi University of Management. If you can come for three months or more, it's free - thanks to the generosity of the Howard and Alice Settle Foundation. This includes free board at the brand new, Vedic architecture Argiro Student Centre with excellent catering, and lodging in comfortable buildings right opposite the Yogic Flying facilities, or Domes. There are no other fees: you only require your airfare.
Less than three months
If you can't manage three months, then it's still very cheap, with no course fee or Dome fee, and accommodation on campus starts from $150 a week. Meals at the Argiro are $8, or less if you buy a batch of 30 tickets.
See the Invincible America Assembly website for details; fill out an application form, obtain approval from the UK National Office, and complete a request for financial aid if you can stay for even one month. Financial aid comprises all accommodation and meals: you only need to pay your airfare. If you want to phone the IAA office, it is six hours behind the UK, and the office is open 1:30 - 4:30 pm US time; phone numbers are on the website.
At the same time ...
There are lots of activities on campus to enjoy during your free time, including celebrations, lectures, films and so on. You can also do pottery, sing with the choral group, learn Vedic dance ...
You don't need a visa if you are coming for 90 days or less - just get an on-line visa waiver: apply through the ESTA website. The Assembly office is happy to let you have financial aid for a stay of 88 days so that you are within the visa waiver scheme, with a couple of days to spare.
