About the Institute

The Maharishi Invincibility Institute is a non-profit organisation established in June 2007 to develop a new generation of leaders for South Africa. 

Maharishi Institute provides financial access to the qualifications of its education partners which students access via distance education, while gaining work experience.

The Institute enriches the distance education learning experience and makes it complete through the provision of comprehensive support services, including work experience, infrastructure access, bridging programmes, and self development programmes.

The Institute is a division of the non-profit Maharishi Education for Invincibility Trust (IT 9927/07) and is a Public Benefit Organisation.

The Maharishi Institute does not offer its own educational qualifications and is not a private higher educational institution. Please read more about Maharishi Institute's approach to supporting external academic programmes from partner providers.

To Enhance Success the Institute Provides:

  • Work experience
  • Self-development programmes which develop students holistically, improve learning ability, improve behaviour and lead to greater skill in action. These are the scientifically validated Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhis programmes:
  • Financial support in the way of bursary loans
  • Computer and Internet access
  • Library and canteen

Experiential learning for your career
While studying for the qualifications students simultaneously have the benefit of experiential learning programmes to build valuable work experience:

  • skills development – learning essential skills for the workplace
  • career path - training and guidance
  • a supportive professional learning environment.

Every student can make it to a life of success and achievement. The majority of youth graduating from South Africa’s high schools are in great need of the experiential skills to make them highly employable, and the entrepreneurial background to build successful businesses, and need the financial support and the academic learning skills to enter and succeed in post-secondary school studies. The Maharishi Institute provides the financing, education access, skills development path, personal development tools, and a supportive environment so that these students can make it step by step to a life of success and achievement. This is why we call our approach Stepping Stones to educational and economic freedom.

Maharishi Institute supports students’ intellectual, emotional, physical, and spiritual growth. It offers a loving, supportive, and nurturing environment in which every student naturally rises to develop their full innate potential.
