In Oprah Winfrey’s most recent “What I Know for Sure” column in the February 2012 issue of O Magazine, she talks about her experiences with the Transcendental Meditation program and her visit to Fairfield, Iowa, the home of Maharishi University of Management.

During her visit to the University, Oprah meditated with more than a 1,000 people in the University’s Golden Domes. She described her TM experience this way:

“It was a powerfully energizing yet calming experience. I didn’t want it to end.
“When it did, I walked away feeling fuller than when I’d come in. Full of hope, a sense of contentment, and deep joy. Knowing for sure that even in the daily craziness that bombards us from every direction, there is—still—the constancy of stillness.
“Only from that space can you create your best work and your best life.”

Oprah’s visit to Fairfield (which she called “TM Town”) will be featured later this spring on Oprah’s Next Chapter program (Sunday nights on OWN – the Oprah Winfrey Network).

      Ask your local TM teacher about the reduced rates for full-­time students, couples, families, children, and those under financial hardship.

    Thank you Oprah for using clips of our film, SCHOOL OF THOUGHT in your movie about Fairfield, Iowa. Our film stars David Lynch, Dr. John Hagelin, Donovan and Paul McCartney. There are also in depth interviews with students from the Maharishi School who meditate twice a day. We love Fairfield and it’s great to know your producers are making good use of the scenes we filmed in town. SchoolofThoughtMovie.com

    Congratulations to the entire meditating family in Fairfield. Your decades of commitment to maintaining Maharishi’s teaching and sharing it with our World is creating such inspiring success. Best wishes for ever greater achievements.

    I just finished watching the program, went to the website, and called the 888 #. I was put in touch with the local chapter here in NYC, the fee is out of my budget range now, but I am determined. Thanks Oprah, your idea of bringing yourself to the people outside of the studio is fantastic. You are continuing the process in a new light; and I am happy to be a part of it.

    May God’s richest Blessing continue to flow through your life.
