Where is Fairfield Iowa?

Welcome to Fairfield!

After Oprah Winfrey’s show featuring her visit to Fairfield Iowa on March 25, 2012, and being choosen as one of the great places in the USA by Mother Earth News, and just recently in 2013 by the Smithsonian Magazine, and with all the additional coverage in national magazines, ¬†you may be wondering… Where is Fairfield Iowa?

Fairfield is in the heart of the Midwest, tucked in the Southeast corner of Iowa. The crime is low, average longevity is high, home prices are feasible, and the community is diverse! Many of the meditators, artists, and entrepreneurs came here from cities on the West or East Coast, and other parts of the world, and have brought their cultural tastes and creativity with them. The movement for green, organic, sustainable living flourishes here. Fairfield has blossomed with new homes, an arts and convention center, year-round art walks, galleries, restaurants, walking trails, dance, theater, film and is still expanding and improving!

Fairfield… there is definitely something different about Fairfield, where thousands of people say they have generally moved away from the traditional outlook of everyone-for-themselves to enjoy a smoother, happier community. It’s a great place to live!

Fairfield, or “TM town” as Oprah mentioned, is the capital of the Transcendental Meditation Program, and there is a consciousness-based grade school, high school, and college.

This makes total sense to me. Transcendental Meditation really hpeeld me get though college and Graduate School. Prior to learning the technique, pressure from school really got to me, but afterwards I found I was much more relaxed and less fearful and I found that I did much better on tests as a consequence. I think every kid, well actually anyone, would benefit from this easy and wonderful technique. Worth its price in gold, if you ask me.
