At Maharishi University of Management (MUM), students come from all around the world to learn from the best of the best about health and how to improve it through the ancient system of Maharishi AyurVeda. Undergraduate Physiology and Health students study with top-notch Maharishi AyurVedic professors, MDs, and Vaidyas with decades of experience, and then put that knowledge to work in a practicum class in the local Integrative Wellness Center. One thing that such students learn is Maharishi AyurVedic pulse diagnosis, which is a powerful tool for learning about mind/body acuity and coordination, and the elemental level of balance in the human body. Maharishi AyurVeda is fast gaining recognition in the world of medicine. Physicians, chiropractors, osteopaths and naturopaths are taking notice. Pulse diagnosis technology is an essential component of this comprehensive how-to-stay-healthy, prevention-oriented methodology and approach and is available at MUM in the most updated, complete, and comprehensive package. Honing pulse diagnosis skill is a prerequisite for getting an undergraduate degree in Physiology and Health, and it is both easy and fun to learn. “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”  Benjamin Franklin was way ahead of his time when he made this pithy observation. To avoid disease altogether is the goal of Maharishi Ayurveda. The knowledge and technologies of the Maharishi AyurVeda can bring this “Science of Life” (from the Sanskrit; Ayur, meaning life, and Veda, meaning knowledge), into the modern era, to solve our most pressing health problems.

Hi there, [caption id="attachment_23739" align="alignleft" width="150"]Brand AmBass Brand AmBass[/caption]

This is my first post as the newly hired Brand Ambassador (or as I like to call it, Brand Ambass) for the Media and Communications department, so please be nice to me in the comment section, if any.

I have some exciting news, Spring is around the corner.

But more importantly, the David Lynch Masters Film students are gearing up to shoot their projects, some of them even starting production this month. I've been privy to some sneak peek scripts and what I can tell you is … I want to see these films made soon.

Actually now. Actually yesterday. Lets just say it’s hard to contain the excitement.

I've been meeting these students and hearing their plans and now I wish I could help out all their projects and contribute to their campaigns. But unfortunately I'm only one person, so this is where you come in.

We've collected all of the films’ information and put it here in one place, for you to get in on the action and check out the projects. The crowdfunding pages indicated below are a great way to learn about each project, the filmmakers and their live updates. Some M.A. student films are not yet included, I will be posting the crowdfunding pages as soon as they are live. (Click the film titles to learn more).
