Raja Paul Potter, Raja of Invincible Canada for the Global Country of World Peace, recently reported that First Nations people in Canada are enjoying the benefits of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's programmes—particularly in the fields of education and health—and interest is growing.

Speaking on the Maharishi Global Family Chat he said that there are two First Nations schools in Canada offering Consciousness-Based Education. The success of these programmes has generated a stir of interest in other First Nations Schools, Raja Potter said.

The Transcendental Meditation Technique has been particularly important to First Nations people in terms of its health benefits, he continued.

Commenting on Raja Potter's talk, Dr William Overall, National Director of Invincible Canada for the Global Country of World Peace, said that diabetes is a significant concern for First Nations people. In First Nations communities, the rise of diabetes is five times greater than the national average. This is their primary health concern and Transcendental Meditation is a solution, he said.

One First Nations leader found that after learning Transcendental Meditation his condition improved—and actually normalized. Dr Overall said they hope to expand on the current success* and offer this solution to all First Nations people across Canada.

*Global Good News has featured other articles about the benefits of Transcendental Meditation for this condition.
