Paul Wilson is an MBA candidate at Indiana
University's Kelley School of Business. His undergraduate studies included
physics and mathematics at Maharishi International University (MIU), a
private liberal arts college in Iowa, with an innovative curriculum that
includes the study of consciousness as a meta-foundation for all other
disciplines. He began practice of the experiential component of this study
of consciousness at age thirteen by learning the Transcendental Meditation®
(TM) technique of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. During his years at MIU, he added
an advanced practice of the TM technique, the TM-Sidhi®
program, to his daily routine. In the mid-1980s,
he was fortunate to take a series of courses in various Vedic disciplines
that were offered at MIU, led by some of India's top Vedic scholars. His
focus was Ayur-Veda, the holistic health teachings of the Vedic tradition.
Scholars and vaidyas (therapeutic practitioners) offering this
knowledge included Drs. H.S. Kasture, C.P. Shukla, V.M. Dwivedi, Balraj
Maharshi, Raj Vaidya B.D. Triguna, and the now-famous Deepak Chopra. In
addition, Paul studied Jyotish (Vedic astrology), Gandharva Veda (music),
Sthapatya Veda (architecture), and Vedic mathematics.
In the early 1990s, Paul co-founded an Ayur-Vedic panchakarma
treatment facility in Indianapolis and received training in the
rejuvenative therapies. During these same years, he had new opportunities to
continue his studies in Ayur-Veda and Jyotish under scholars who stayed for
up to a year at his clinic. Paul has worked in
other fields during the years in-between, including computerized litigation
support and in computer book publishing, where he
specialized in quality.
