The Inaugural Conference of the American Association of Health Professionals Practicing the Transcendental Meditation Program begins today at Maharishi University of Management (M.U.M.) in Fairfield, Iowa, USA.

The conference will be held in the beautiful new Argiro Student Center at M.U.M. from Friday, 26 September through Sunday, 28 September 2008.

According to Dr Stuart Rothenberg, MD, who is National Co-Director of Health for the Global Country of World Peace in the United States, the conference will include 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 pioneering researcher on the physiological effects of the Transcendental Meditation Programme. He will lecture on the expression of Veda and the Vedic Literature in human physiology.

One excellent development, Dr Rotherberg said, speaking recently on Maharishi Global Family Chat, 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.'

He also also commented that the conference programme is taking place entirely in a fortune-creating Maharishi Sthapatya Veda building, 'an ideal environment for the professionals to gather together and plan for the perfect health of the individual and nation.'

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.

The conference will also include a workshop 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.'
