First Nations leaders will address hundreds of delegates from countries around the world at an Ottawa conference on global health. They will speak about how the Transcendental Meditation Programme and other programmes of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi have helped First Nations and Native American communities in Canada and the United States.

Dr Christopher Collrin, Director of First Nations Programmes for the Global Country of World Peace in Canada, reported 21 October about the upcoming conference.*

The conference will be attended by over 300 delegates from more than 40 countries, representing agencies such as Doctors Without Borders, the World Health Organization, Oxfam, UNICEF, Pan American Health Organization, the International Red Cross, and representatives from a number of other United Nations Health agencies.

At a symposium during the conference on 3 November, hosted by the Assembly of First Nations, and led by First Nations National Chief Shawn Atleo, the Assembly of First Nations will give a presentation on Maharishi's programmes in the field of health, particularly health for First Nations communities.

The symposium will also feature a video clip from the American Indian conference held at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA in September 2009. The video highlights American Indian and Canadian First Nations leaders speaking about the health benefits of the Transcendental Meditation Programme.
