The Power of Small Actions

The Alliance of Women Scientists and Scholars for a Better World was founded in 2011 to bring together women studying our inner and outer worlds; to connect these women, to build supportive networks, and to share the enhanced quality of life available through Transcendental Meditation.

This third annual conference will gather together great thinkers and scientists from many countries working on some of the most important and challenging problems of our age—from the inner workings of a child's brain to the very nature of the universe.

In particular we will discuss and study the effects of the Transcendental Meditation Programme and its broad range of application. Join us for the three-day conference and share your expertise with women from all over the world.

This year we have assigned one day to each topic to allow participants to enjoy more time for discussion and informal meetings in the beautiful gardens and forest surrounding MERU, weather permitting.
