Canadian Women’s Wellness Initiative serves women whose jobs and lives are at risk due to debilitating or traumatic stress. We offer the evidence-based stress reducing Transcendental Meditation program to combat the harmful effects of stress on the job or in the home. It is our belief that the stress reduction programs such as TM should be at the core of all wellness programs for women on the job or at home, so they can build creativity, intelligence, resilience, self-sufficiency and empowerment.
Who We Serve
The women we help include police, military, veterans, firefighters, paramedics, nurses and teachers as well as women suffering from domestic violence or girls at-risk due to stress at home or at school.
What We Offer
The Transcendental Meditation Technique
The Transcendental Meditation technique is a highly effective tool for overcoming stress. The technique is practiced for ten to twenty minutes twice daily while sitting comfortably with eyes closed. During meditation, the mind settles to quieter levels of thought and even beyond thought to a natural state of inner silence. As the mind effortlessly settles down to these quieter levels of thought, the body correspondingly settles down to a state of deep physical rest. This state of inner peace and calm produces profound physical relaxation, and yet the mind remains restfully alert. Published research shows that during this experience, the brain functions with significantly greater coherence while the metabolism settles down. This deep level of mental and physiological rest dissolves stress and revitalizes the individual to develop clearer thinking, increased physical energy and vitality, enhanced work or academic performance, and improved relationships with others, including co-workers and supervisors.
