A research project on the Transcendental Meditation Programme and diabetes is to be conducted at a First Nations community in Canada. The study is just one wave in an upwelling of interest and support among First Nations leaders for the programmes of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

Raja Paul Potter, Raja of Invincible Canada for the Global Country of World Peace reported on this initiative along with a Dr Christopher Collrin, National Director of Communication for the Global Country in Canada.* Please see Part I of this article.

One of the resources supporting First Nations' health programmes has decided to develop a research project on Transcendental Meditation and diabetes.

One First Nations leader—who has also inspired several colleagues to learn the Transcendental Meditation Programme and is directing a number of initiatives to offer programmes in education, health, and other areas—was instrumental in bringing about support for the research, Dr Collrin said.

The project will be modelled on a study on the Winnebago tribe in Nebraska, USA. Winnebago study lead researcher Dr Carolyn King, from the Institute for Natural Medicine and Prevention at Maharishi University of Management, will be principal investigator for this new project. 

Researchers plan to track the progress of about 30 First Nations clients from a diabetes clinic, after the clients learn the Transcendental Meditation Programme.

'Under Dr Carolyn King's expertise and guidance we anticipate that the research publication based on this study's findings will be forthcoming,' Dr Collrin said.

More research may be a possibility, Dr Collrin continued, as other First Nations leaders are supporting programmes in their communities. One such Yogic Flyer inspired two of her colleagues to learn Transcendental Meditation, and they are now working to introduce a research study on the programme in their community.
