World Peace Assemblies offer an opportunity for practitioners of the TM-Sidhi program to enjoy a weekend or week of extended practice of the TM and TM-Sidhi programs, gaining deep and revitalizing rest.

Enjoy the soft silent atmosphere created by Purusha in the deep seclusion of a forest setting. This the place to totally relax, switch off and dive into deep experiences. Enjoy the fresh mountain air and scenic walks and the added benefit of living in a Maharishi Vastu Architecture designed facility.

“The atmosphere is totally enveloped in a deep, soft silence and peace created by the Purusha doing long, deep meditations, and the experiences of all the men who attended the course with me, were the best they have had anywhere. And to top it off, it is very comfortable. It is an ideal place to go and really taste the inner essence of Maharishi’s teaching. It is obvious that much of Maharishi’s attention went into this wonderful place.”
—Michael Busch

“In over 35 years as a meditator I have never had such profoundly deep and clear programs as I experienced at the Purusha Capital in West Virginia. The facility is beautiful and comfortable in a pristine, quiet mountain setting. Most important though is being in the atmosphere of silence created by a powerful, coherent group of Purusha.”
—John Morehead, M.D.
