This course gives fundamental knowledge about the Maharishi Light Therapy with Gems (MLG).
It gives insight into how this pleasant and beneficial method was developed by Prof Joachim Roller under the direct guidance of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi by merging ancient wisdom with modern technology. The significance of gemstones in Ayurveda will be discussed.
You will learn about the properties of gemstones on the one hand from modern science – like physical properties, formation, occurrence, trace elements and colours – and on the other hand from the ancient Vedic Literature.
The importance of light that is beamed through gems during MLG will be discussed and the harmonising effect of MLG on mind and body supporting the development of higher states of consciousness will be explained.
This course is the first part of Phase I of the MLG course.
It is a prerequisite for taking part 2 of phase 1, which is a residence course in Vlodrop, The Netherlands. After completing part 2 of phase 1 you will be certified to give Maharishi Light Therapy with Gems (MLG) treatments to healthy people and those with minor imbalances, the first phase of a rewarding career as a Maharishi Light Therapy with Gems practitioner.
“The information that is absorbed from the environment in very deep and very rare places on earth are brought into the specific structure, the micro-structure of the gem.”
— John S. Hagelin, PhD (Quantum Physicist)
Joachim and Iris Roller are the heads of the Maharishi Light Therapy with Gems (MLG) Department and are the faculty for this course. Professor Joachim Roller, a gemologist and jeweller, developed MLG over 30 years under the guidance of Maharishi.
After years of working as a prestigious jewellery designer, including a period as a chief designer at Christian Dior, Joachim learned Transcendental Meditation and became a Governor. He and his wife, Iris, instructed over 800 people in the TM technique. Soon afterwards, Joachim met with Maharishi and asked him how he might use gemstones to promote better health and the development of consciousness. Maharishi advised him to look into Ayurveda, India’s traditional healthcare system. Joachim took Maharishi’s advice and began his 30-year quest to create a practical, modern technology that could bring the benefits of gemstones to everyone. With Maharishi’s guidance, he succeeded, and MLG is now available in numerous countries across the world.
Today, Joachim and his wife Iris oversee the development of MLG worldwide and have together trained over 200 practitioners of MLG over the years. They have conducted Phase I of the training course more than 20 times, refining the material each year.
Orelia Roller is the daughter of Iris and Joachim and grew up with Maharishi’s techniques and MLG. After attending university and studying music, she undertook a four-year training to become a goldsmith and gemstone setter. She loves the benefits MLG is giving the people, and it is her great honour to carry this wisdom to the next generation.
