Organization Mission

The purpose of the Canadian Women’s Wellness Initiative is to provide access to the Transcendental Meditation® (TM®) technique to individuals who are at risk for, or suffering from, high levels of burnout, traumatic stress or occupational stress injuries

We offer the Transcendental Meditation technique to individuals in high stress professions such as police, firefighters, paramedics, nurses and teachers. We also offer TM to veterans and family members who are experiencing occupational stress injuries or facing the challenges of transitioning to civilian life and to at-risk families.

In addition to offering training in the TM technique we also fund independent research on the effects of TM practice on physical and psychological stress in individuals.
