Consciousness-Based EducationDeveloping the full potential of the brain and unfolding the inner genius of every student

Stress-free Learning

We all remember those days when we wanted to understand all the secrets and knowledge of the universe--our mind was clear and our body was invincible.

Indeed this is the spark of life and enthusiasm that each of us has been born with--but today, modern education lacks the skill to maintain and nurture this spark of energy and dynamism and unfold our inner infinite human potential. Indeed education is one of causes of stress and tension diminishes and damages life. What the need is today is for a system of education that is virtually stress-free.

In an age as conscious as ours of stress and its effects on the body, few doubt anymore the importance of a sound and relatively stress-free physiology to effective mental performance. Yet no college assessment programmes, to our knowledge, have looked at the effect of college on health and physiological functioning.
