Received a MBA from Maharishi International University. Yep, someone recently was telling me there were about a 100 people who became TM teachers out of St. Louis, Columbia, Kansas City and the Cape. Carl seems to have also been of the Missouri TM cohort for a time. His friends called him, 'Big-Beefy'. Tim Hildebrandt told a story about Carl saying one time when they were teaching TM in the St. Louis area they were in rough area using a motel to initiate in. They went out for a meal and on coming back Carl's tape recorder was missing from the room. He went out to his car, got a baseball bat and went down a few doors banging on a door to where some guys were hanging out saying to them that he was missing his tape recorder and was going out for a while but that the tape recorder better be back when he returns or.. "heads will roll". The tape recorder was back in its place when he got back. Wait. Karl ( Carl) Wannaman? I knew him. He was part of the Cape Giradeau, Mo. contingent if it is who I am thinking of. Would have been friends with George Todt and Tim Hildebrandt, (deceased). I would not have pegged him as the Navy Seal type, though, or a healer, for that matter, but he was a nice fellow. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <dhamiltony...@yahoo.com> wrote : Carl W0nneman passed away last night. An old devotee of Maharishi, very much a part of the Fairfield, Iowa Meditating Satsanga. A cultivated spiritual guy, a healer. He was a Navy Seal before there were Navy Seals, went to Viet Nam. He met Maharishi while surfing and walking on the beach one day in Malibu. Later he went to TM teacher training. For a while Maharishi made him a checker of advanced techniques. In his later years he was resident in Fairfield and very much present in the meditating community. The last couple of years he was confined in a nursing home in Fairfield. I am grateful to have known him, he taught me the night technique the way Maharishi taught it to him. I will miss him. “Free at last, he is free, thank god almighty he is free at last”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sb_g4jkPqUw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sb_g4jkPqUw ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <dhamiltony...@yahoo.com> wrote : John Ong 1927-2017 ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <dhamiltony...@yahoo.com> wrote : On Being.

The calculus of aging in TM.. Some of what we can see in these lists is a natural aging-out of the Post-War Cohort, of the people who were early with Maharishi in the very early SRM movement, the Walter Koch and Charlie Lutes generation of TM. Now what we are seeing in TM is an accelerating rate of attrition to aging-out of the Boomer I and Boomer II’s. Interestingly, the cusp time period where the Boomers I and Boomers II met was the time frame where TM took off in popular (college undergrad, grad student, professor-age) culture for a time. A lot of the TM movement intake happened in those years 1968-76, over the cusp of the Boomers I and II. You can see this particular cusp in the age span of meditators in the Dome or at campus meetings of the TM community now. The WWII generation is pretty much gone from the ranks of TM now. The Post-War Cohort are pretty gone or geriatric now and the Boomers I are increasingly shuffling or gone on. Boomers II are increasingly ‘in diminish’. Time is short regardless. Post-War Cohort Born: 1928-1945 Coming of Age: 1946-1963 Age in 2004: 59 to 76 Current Population: 41 million (declining)
