So I watched this special covered by the Anti-Christ Oprah on this small town of 9,500 people in Fairfield, Iowa. For a price of around $1,500-2,000, you learn the technique of practicing TM also known as "Transcendental Meditation". The people in this small city meditate twice a day for a period of 20 minutes each.
The benefits of Transcendetal Meditation can be found here: http://www.tm.org/benefits-of-meditation
It was developed by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maharishi_Mahesh_Yogi

There's also Vedic City
Here, non-organic food is banned, and all houses face east, adhering to an ancient Indian architectural style that is said to bring peace and harmony to one's surroundings. Maharishi Vedic City is also home to a top secret, 80-acre compound where 800 men from India live and spend eight hours a day meditating, chanting and studying.
So, this is a summary in a nutshell. What do you think, A brainwashing cult? or progression towards a better life?
