Artist and art teacher Greg Thatcher discusses the relationship between TM practice and the subjective experience of creating and appreciating art. He also talks about perceiving art with openness and an expanded state of consciousness, which offers us direct contact with our deeper selves and the inspiration and beauty experienced by artists in their work.

Mr. Thatcher received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in printmaking from the University of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, and his Master of Arts in drawing and painting from the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, Canada. His work has been exhibited at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; MacKenzie Art Gallery (Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada); the University of Nevada, Reno; University of Saskatchewan (Saskatoon, Canada); Burlington Iowa Art Center; Galesburg Community Art Center (Illinois); and Quad Cities International Airport (Moline, Illinois). In the United Kingdom, his work has been exhibited at the Gloucestershire Society of Artists, Artburst Painswick, and the Nature in Art Museum.

Mr. Thatcher has also received many awards and grants in the United States, Canada, and the UK. He has been a lecturer in art appreciation, and painting and drawing at the University of Saskatchewan, and an instructor and assistant professor of art at Maharishi International University in Fairfield, Iowa. He also served as art department director at Maharishi School in Fairfield for 30 years, during which time his students won over 700 state, national, and international fine art awards.
