After learning the Transcendental Meditation Technique and finding deep relaxation and peace during the practice, as well as improvements in their own health and well-being, many of the revered indigenous mothers who attended the recent international women's conference in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, now want to make the programme available throughout the world.
Video interviews with some of the traditional women leaders were played during the Global Mother Divine Organization's* November Full Moon celebration, which reported on achievements of the conference, 'Restoring balance: The Indigenous Grandmothers' call to the women of the world'.
The grandmothers spoke of their desire for the Transcendental Meditation Programme to be implemented everywhere. 'If we had Transcendental Meditation in every city, it would make such a difference in our communities' health. I think TM needs to be taught to the world at this point in time.'
Several women especially recognized the potential benefits of Transcendental Meditation for young people: 'I'd recommend it especially to the young children, the adolescents. I'd like to learn more so that I could present that to others—and of course starting with my grandchildren.'
Some of the mothers expressed concern at rising depression and despair among young people on the reservations. 'The children, the young people growing up, can use that meditation and . . . learn something good from it,' said one of the mothers.
Many new initiatives came out of the international women's conference, with the aim of fulfilling these timely needs. Global Good News will feature these initiatives in the coming days.
