Thank you in advance for supporting this campaign to help amazing 4 MUM students get their TM-Sidhis!
About the fundraiser: The campaign's objective is to help Dominique Ragland, Malik Evans, Chevonne Height, and Marcello Lopez pay for their TM-Sidhi course.
Breakdown of the Costs: The course cost for each student is $1,780 ($1,250 for tuition and $530 for housing costs). $1,780 x 4 = $7,120 + $380 to cover GoFundMe fees
The David Lynch Foundation is providing scholarships of $750 per student who commits to being in the dome for 1 year.
$750 x 4 = $3,000 in scholarships
Costs plus GoFundMe fees minus scholarship: $7,500 - $3,000 = $4,500 left to raise
To avoid fees (GoFundme charges about 8%) you can also donate via Venmo or PayPal (mariamdaudi @ gmail.com) or send a check to Mariam Daudi, PO Box 2192, Fairfield, IA 52556 and I will manually apply the funds to GoFundMe.
About the students: They are new students at Maharishi University of Management who want to take this course and give back to the global community.

Malik: 25 year-old transfer student from Atlanta, GA studying Sustainabile Living. Wants to address issues of food sovereignty.

About the TM-Sidhi program: Transcendental Meditation (TM) is an effortless technique that is practiced 20 minutes twice a day. The TM-Sidhi course teaches advanced meditation techniques which build on the foundation of TM.
The Course Part 1 of the course is 3 weeks long and conducted in a classroom-type setting. Students are able to go home after each meeting. For Part 2 of the course, all students will move into on-campus housing, in a dedicated retreat space.
