Report on the Victoria School for Ideal Education

March 10, 2011

Victoria School for Ideal Education

Hilary Hillman, a Community News Specialist for The Daily, files a report on the Victoria School for Ideal Education. Have a look inside this Canadian  independent elementary school in Victoria, BC where children practice Transcendental Meditation twice a day. The younger children perform a simple walking meditation version of the technique, which does not involve any special breathing or centering techniques as mentioned in this report. Children over 10 years of age practice TM sitting comfortably with eyes closed. In these seemingly more progressive times, the introduction of yoga and/or meditation, especially the  Transcendental Meditation technique, is becoming part of an ongoing healthy trend in education.
