A symposium held last month during the 17th Annual Conference on Global Health in Canada was a watershed event, opening new doors to bring all of the programmes of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi for health, happiness, and success to First Nations people, and to the world as a whole.

The symposium was titled 'Pathways to Global Health through Indigenous Knowledge: First Nations as Custodians of Natural Law in Restoring Healthy, Sustainable First Nations Communities'.

Each of the First Nations speakers at the symposium expressed great appreciation for Maharishi's programmes of Natural Law, including Transcendental Meditation and the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, commented Dr Christopher Collrin, Director of First Nations Programmes for the Global Country of World Peace, Canada.

Utilization of these programmes has resulted in increased coherence and harmony and has helped address the endemic problem of violence in many First Nations communities, he said.

Dr Collrin also described several exciting initiatives and practical successes of the First Nations leaders.

The Administrator of the Global Country in Canada thanked the Global Mother Divine Organization* in the country for their representation at the event, and noted the moving presentation by the Director of the First Nations Women's Council.

Her talk built upon the September 2010 international women's conference—'Restoring Balance: Indigenous Grandmothers Call to the Women of the World' at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, and demonstrated how deeply First Nations appreciate and resonate with the ideals of the Global Mother Divine Organization.

* The Global Mother Divine Organization, founded in December 2007, is the ladies' wing of the Global Country of World Peace.
