Through the programmes of the Global Mother Divine Organization* (GMDO) in Iceland in the past year, many women have been inspired to learn the Transcendental Meditation Technique. Interest in Transcendental Meditation has been growing steadily in Iceland in recent years, and 141 women have learned the technique since last summer.
Women who practise Transcendental Meditation have been gathering for monthly meetings at the Maharishi Invincibility Centre** in Reykjavik. They enjoy meditating together, sharing a meal together, followed by an inspiring knowledge presentation on Maharishi's Vedic Science and technologies of consciousness—including development of consciousness through Transcendental Meditation and its advanced programmes; Maharishi Ayur-Veda natural health care; Maharishi Gandharva Veda music; and Maharishi Vastu architecture (Sthapatya Veda).
Two special Residence Courses have also been held for women Transcendental Meditation practitioners in Reykjavik.
In the town of Keflavik, a presentation on Transcendental Meditation at a women's club inspired 15 women to learn the practice, with many more awaiting instruction. Ten to fifteen women enjoy weekly group meditations there also.
Charlotte Bech, MD, a Danish physician who is also an expert in Maharishi Ayur-Veda, revisited Iceland in October 2010. In addition to extensive radio and press coverage of her visit, Dr Bech gave two very interesting lectures for women. Many of the women attending requested Ayurvedic health consultations with Dr Bech, and she graciously accommodated everyone.
Three women Teachers of Transcendental Meditation attended a Teacher Refresher Course in the past year.
The Transcendental Meditation Teachers of Iceland have resolved to hold a course this year in the advanced Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, including Yogic Flying. Their goal is to train enough Yogic Flyers to establish a coherence-creating group for Iceland, large enough to create an invincible, permanent state of peace, harmony, prosperity, and progress for the whole nation.
This news was featured in a presentation of GMDO–Iceland's achievements of the past year, along with new initiatives and plans for 2011, during the global Full Moon celebration on 19 January—a continuing session of the Global Mother Divine Organization's 12 January celebrations in MERU, Holland.
Global Good News will continue to feature more news of achievements of GMDO in countries around the world.
