About the course

In this special online course, Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture expert Dr Peter Swan will introduce methods of gardening in light of Maharishi Vedic Science.

Open to everyone, this immersive course will take place over the weekend, bringing out the relationship between soil fertility, consciousness, and health.

By the end of the intensive weekend, you will have an overview of the most fundamental and up-to-date aspects and techniques of organic agriculture and gardening, which are also the simplest to follow. You will have new inspiration and practical tips for growing your own highly nutritious food (and flowers!) with much less work.

All the sessions will be conducted live, including many opportunities to ask questions of Dr Swan – this interactive aspect allows the course to be customised according to the needs of the group. The recorded sessions will also be available online for three months after the course ends.

The course is suitable for both beginner and advanced gardeners. In fact, you may be asked to forget most of what you’ve already learned about gardening and gain a whole new understanding based on Maharishi Vedic Science.

About Dr Peter Swan

Maharishi's Total Knowledge
Dr Peter Swan is a Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture expert who worked with Maharishi on Vedic agriculture projects for many years, and in the process deeply researched the basis of food production.

Dr Swan’s experience in gardening and agriculture means he has a great insight into the modern practices of gardening and farming and what they have done to the soil. Organic gardening and farming practices, founded in Vedic science, can help restore the natural balance, and ultimately improve our health. In other words, we can accomplish more by doing less.

With this knowledge, Dr Swan has taught Vedic Agriculture and Gardening courses in many countries around the world. His goal is to highlight the scientific research on organic farming and help make agriculture sustainable globally.

Dr Swan is the host of news programme Maharishi’s Global Family Chat, where he enjoys reporting on the latest trends and achievements on a daily basis.

What course participants say

‘Brilliant course for explaining both the principles and practicalities of organic agriculture and gardening.’

– N.K.

‘This was the most enjoyable and inspiring knowledge course ever! Peter Swan’s breadth and depth of research is remarkable, yet easy to follow for the non-scientist like myself. The course is a perfect mixture of practical information for the gardener and Maharishi’s deepest principles of life and living.’

– T.M.

‘[The course] clearly demonstrates how modern approaches to agriculture in recent decades have gone disastrously wrong and at the same time how simple, holistic and energy-efficient approaches are demonstrating the ability of Natural Law to heal the mistakes of the past, produce healthy food in abundance and through Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture create nourishing, vital food for perfect health and enlightenment.’

– H.B.

‘I have been involved in horticulture etc. for decades – and was amazed at how much I didn’t know! I feel most inspired to rush out into my garden as soon as I get home and transform it.’

– S.B.

‘The course demonstrates clearly that it is for everyone not just specialists in agriculture’

– J.
