The number of people learning the Transcendental Meditation Programme in New Zealand rose significantly in the past year.

Dr Graeme Lodge, National Director of New Zealand for the Global Country of World Peace along with Dr Raylene Lodge, reported that 330 per cent more people learned the technique in 2009, compared with 2008.

Dr Lodge praised the nation's Transcendental Meditation Teachers for their tremendous success in offering the diverse, scientifically verified benefits of this programme* to people around the country.

Over 350 people learned Transcendental Meditation—the highest number in recent years. Of these, more than 200 were students and staff who are now enjoying Consciousness-Based Education.** More than 100 people learned Transcendental Meditation in courses for the public.

Dr Lodge said that they hope to continue offering Transcendental Meditation to more and more people through the coming year.
