January 6, 2015
Address: Coalition for the Protection of Children premises, 38 Mount Hill, Pembroke HM 09.
Teacher: Sylvia Hayward-Harris
Sylvia Hayward-Harris, Bermuda’s newest and only active local Certified Teacher of Transcendental Meditation, is a mother, grand-mother, and great grandmother. The Raja-jeshri of Britain has called her the “Mother of Bermuda,” and Sylvia’s love, caring and respect for her island home and its people make this a fitting description. Sylvia learned TM in 1975, became a Siddha in 2002, and certified as a TM Teacher in March 2015. She states that her impetus for becoming a teacher of the TM program is directly related to her desire to make a positive difference in her community and her belief that TM, with its multiple scientific studies attesting to the positive impact of the practice on not only individual physical and emotional health and mental development but also on building increasingly harmonious social relationships. “Bermuda has already seen the benefits of two previous Creating Coherence projects where crime rates dropped and tensions cooled. Now we have the opportunity to make society-wide coherence permanent.”
