Inside Maharishi's Ashram, a personal memoir with Guest: Rhoda Orme-Johnson, PhD

Author Rhoda Orme-Johnson details her often skeptical introduction to TM and to Maharishi and takes the reader through her years of being a TM teacher and founding faculty member of MIU, Maharishi International University (now Maharishi University of Management), and her departure from the university. Her honest, vivid, and humorous take on what was going on around her provides, in the words of her reviewers, “a riveting read”, and “a page turner.”

Rhoda’s career began with a BA in mathematics from Vassar College and a stint working on the Apollo project as a programmer assisting engineers writing abort trajectories for the missions. Drawn to her first love, fiction, she left her job to pursue a PhD in Comparative Literature from the University of Maryland in College Park. When she became involved in the TM movement she and her family traveled around the world with Maharishi and then settled at MIU in Fairfield, Iowa, until her departure in 1996.
