Speaking 9 September 2008 on Maharishi Global Family Chat, Dr Stuart Rothenberg, MD and National Co-Director of Health for the Global Country of World Peace in the United States, reported progress in preparations for the upcoming Inaugural Conference of the American Association of Health Professionals Practicing the Transcendental Meditation Program.
The conference will be held in the beautiful new Argiro Student Center at Maharishi University of Management, Fairfield, Iowa, from Friday, 26 September through Sunday, 28 September 2008. 'For many of the attendees this will be their first time inside a fortune-creating Maharishi Sthapatya Veda building,' said Dr Rothenberg. 'It will be an ideal environment for the professionals to gather together and plan for the perfect health of the individual and nation.'
One excellent development, continued Dr Rothenberg, is that the conference has been approved by the American Medical Association for a Category 1 Continuing Medical Education Credit. 'This is the gold standard of approval for medical conferences,' he said. 'It has helped draw more professionals to the conference, as they are required to complete a minimum number of continuing education credits each year in order to retain their medical licenses.'
Dr Rothenberg reported that the Association has put together a database of over 800 health professionals practicing the Transcendental Meditation Technique in the US, and the list keeps growing every day. 'It's especially heart-warming to hear from doctors who completed Maharishi Ayur-Veda training 20 years ago,' he added.
Among highlights of the conference, Dr Rothenberg said, will be practical workshops and presentations on applications of Maharishi Ayur-Veda to common clinical protocols. These workshops have been developed with help from Ayurvedic experts from India. Dr Robert Schneider, National Director of Health for the Global Country of World Peace in the US, will present breakthrough scientific research on Transcendental Meditation and on Maharishi Ayur-Veda, as well as introduce new Ayurvedic therapies. Also speaking, via conference call from MERU, Netherlands, will be Dr Keith Wallace, world-renowned physiologist and first scientist of the Age of Enlightenment. He will lecture on the expression of the Veda and Vedic Literature in human physiology.
Dr Rothenberg added that there will be a workshop during the conference on how to apply for health insurance reimbursement for Transcendental Meditation. 'Already there have been several doctors in the US who have successfully obtained reimbursement,' he reported. 'Each time an insurance company reimburses for a single case, it opens the door for future cases and for institutional coverage of the TM Programme by the insurance industry—our ultimate goal.'
Dr Rothenberg concluded by reflecting upon the shift in collective consciousness within the US, due to national invincibility*, which has given rise to such groundbreaking developments in the medical field. 'The recognition of Transcendental Meditation by health insurance companies is a harbinger of great success to come.'
* The number of Yogic Flyers practising together daily that is required for the creation of national invincibility has been reached in recent weeks on the Invincible America Assembly in Maharishi Vedic City and Fairfield, Iowa.
