The international women's conference held recently in Fairfield, Iowa, USA launched a very fruitful collaboration between the Global Mother Divine Organization and the revered indigenous mothers of the world. Women leaders came from all over the world to participate.

The GMDO Foundation of Total Knowledge Based Culture presented the success of the conference during the organization's Full Moon celebration in November. Continuing to describe the beautiful way in which the conference unfolded, the Administrator of the Global Mother Divine Organization in the United States gave an in-depth understanding of the importance of the role of women in bringing balance and harmony for the whole world family.

Please see Part I of this article.

'The Culture foundation of the Global Mother Divine Organization is collaborating with the revered indigenous mothers of our world, who hold the knowledge of Natural Law for their people and for their homelands,' the Administrator said. 'Together we are dedicated to the restoration of . . . total Natural Law, which permeates and guides the universe. We are restoring this order, this balance, by supporting the ancient traditions of the indigenous nations, which have upheld life in accord with Natural Law since the beginning of time.'

The revered indigenous mothers uphold the nourishing power of Natural Law 'in their pious and noble responsibility to nourish the world, and to maintain this world in balance and harmony through their traditional ceremonies and practices; through their reverence for all life on earth; and through their profound awareness of the connectedness of every aspect of life on earth', she said.

On 1 October this year, 40 indigenous grandmothers from around the world convened for the women's conference in Fairfield. Sponsored by GMDO, the conference was entitled 'Restoring balance: The Indigenous Grandmothers' call to the women of the world'.

The primary purpose for creating and hosting this conference, she explained, was to create a foundation of understanding between GMDO and the revered indigenous grandmothers from many First Nations around the world.

'The indigenous people do not establish relations over the phone or through emails,' she said. 'It is their traditional way to meet face to face.' The conference provided a wonderful opportunity for everyone to meet: 'Spiritual leaders, community activists, environmentalists, traditional medicine women, and those women who keep their traditional ways and their languages alive came from as far as Tibet, Nepal, New Zealand, and Hawai'i, and all across the US and Canada'—as well as within Iowa, where the last of the original people of Iowa, the Meskwaki, reside on their reservation.

The goal of the conference was two-fold. First was to highlight 'the importance of the role of women in bringing about balance and harmony in our world family, from the perspective of the cultural traditions represented by each one of our speakers.'

Presenting principles brought to light by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Global Country of World Peace, the Administrator explained that ' ''The destiny of a country is tied to the destiny of its indigenous people.'' And integral to the destiny of all indigenous cultures,' she continued, 'is the role of women in nourishing and strengthening the family unit, and thereby maintaining a stable and progressive society.

'Our intention for this conference was to give expression to the cherished responsibility of every woman to create balance within herself, thereby creating a balanced world through the realization and enlivenment of her own nourishing power.

'The women appreciated that we can truly empower ourselves, and the coming generation of women—not by turning away from the most tender . . . values of our nourishing capacity, in our quest for equality—but rather by fully actualizing them. In this way we establish our ability to advance in every area of life, remaining rooted in our essential nature as mothers of the world, and playing our nourishing role in the world.'

Global Good News will continue featuring the November Full Moon celebration of the Global Mother Divine Organization, including interviews with several of the indigenous grandmothers who attended the women's conference in Fairfield, about their experiences with the Transcendental Meditation Programme.

* 'Mother Divine' refers to the nourishing, evolutionary power of Natural Law lively within all of creation and within the silent consciousness of everyone. The Global Mother Divine Organization, established in December 2007, is the ladies' wing of the Global Country of World Peace in 192 countries.
