At a prison in Dominica, 93 inmates and 8 officers have learned the Transcendental Meditation Technique in a continuing rehabilitation programme, for a total of 101 practitioners. Since learning the technique, the men have reported health benefits including reduction in anxiety, depression, and hyperactivity, as well as normalization of blood pressure and diabetes.

The large group of TM practitioners has also led to a coherence-creating effect for Dominica. For example, it is the only Caribbean nation to have seen economic growth during 2010, with a growth rate of 12 per cent.

The David Lynch Foundation has recently offered its support for the teaching of an additional 12 inmates at this prison, to bring the total to 130 practising Transcendental Meditation. The ultimate goal will be to have all 300 inmates practising the programme.

Global Good News will feature more achievements in Dominica from the past year, which were reported in continuing sessions of the global 12 January 2011 celebrations in MERU, Holland.
