While his friends were at Woodstock, John left for Europe to study with the master of Transcendental Meditation, the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. “Little did I know when I accidentally stumbled on my first TM seminar that it was the beginning of a life-long spiritual and practical quest for developing and expressing my full potential,” explains John.
John spent the next 9 years traveling everywhere Maharishi went and attending every training Maharishi ever taught. John was a sponge for his wisdom and he eventually became Maharishi’s personal assistant and master trainer. John went on to train over 15,000 Transcendental Meditation teachers in over 3000 Transcendental Meditation centers around the world while he was with Maharishi. Many of these teachers awent on to become world famous meditation instructors.
Gray also spent his time studying ancient texts from different religions and philosophies. “I read as many books on spiritual development that I could get my hands on. Maharishi had a vast library of books and teachings. It was exciting to recognize the truth in so many different spiritual traditions and ancient religions,” explains John. His studies eventually led to a Bachelors and Masters Degree in the Science of Creative Intelligence from the fully accredited Maharishi International University in Fairfield, Iowa.
