Below is a list of six courses to be held in 2023. We are also offering a two-day TM-Sidhi Program Refresher Course at the beginning of the October WPA. This course has not been held in the United States for many years.

World Peace Assemblies offer an opportunity to enjoy extended practice of the TM® and TM-Sidhi® programs in order to gain deep and revitalizing rest. Enjoy the soft, silent atmosphere created by Purusha in the seclusion of a forest setting. This is the place to totally relax, switch off, and dive into your experiences. Enjoy the fresh mountain air and scenic walks and the added benefit of living in a Maharishi Vastu® Architecture-designed facility. Our spacious accommodations, panoramic mountain views, delicious organic vegetarian cuisine, good company, and beautiful knowledge talks by Maharishi, all contribute to a delightful experience. Since we are offering fewer courses than previous years, they have been bigger with a larger super radiance effect.

When you apply, you will receive an automated email acknowledging that your application was received. Once we have processed your application, we will send you an acceptance email with detailed travel and payment information. If you have any questions, you can email the Purusha WPA Course Office at courses@purusha.org.

We hope you can join us this year and look forward to seeing you.

Due to changes in recommendations from the government and health authorities regarding COVID, we have dropped the need to have a negative COVID antigen test prior to attending a course. However, if you are feeling ill, we ask that you postpone coming to this course and arrange to attend a later one. The courses will start with a 4-day period of isolation from Purusha. During these 4 days, you will be doing your program together in the WPA building and eating in your own Dining Hall. Then, on the fifth day, you can join your Purusha friends for meals and walks together.

Enjoy the Unique Environment of the Purusha CapitalSM

The Purusha Capital provides a unique environment that is conducive to growth of higher states of consciousness. The deep silence, bliss, and coherence created by the Maharishi Purusha ProgramSM, living in Maharishi Vastu® Architecture buildings, tasty organic food, and being in the fresh air and beautiful mountain environment, all contribute to an ideal atmosphere for extended practice of the TM® and TM-Sidhi® programs. This, together with the sublime knowledge of Maharishi Vedic ScienceSM from the videos of Maharishi and presentations by leading Maharishi Vedic Science experts, makes for a delightful stay for course participants at the Purusha Capital.

Creating Coherence for Washington, D.C. and the World

The establishment of the Purusha Capital near Washington, D.C. constitutes the second element in Maharishi's formula for creating coherence and invincibility in America. A large group of Yogic Flyers in Fairfield, Iowa, and a complementary group practicing Yogic FlyingSM near our nation's capital are keys to creating greater harmony and coherence both for the government and the nation as a whole during this time of transition in world consciousness.
