Alliance Proposes Scientific Solution to Terrorism and Conflict

We are informing top women leaders of all nations of an effective, innovative, peaceful solution to the heightened threat of terrorism throughout the world at this time.

Extensive research has shown that when a sufficient number of individuals practice the Transcendental Meditation technique and its advanced programmes together in groups, there is a dramatic and immediate reduction in societal stress, crime, and conflict and an increase in coherence, positivity, and peace in the society as a whole, nationally and internationally.

This approach has been rigorously and repeatedly field tested and verified. By the strictest standards of modern science, its efficacy is beyond question.

2015 Conference

Our last international conference, was held in Seelisberg, Switzerland on the Lake of Lucerne, 9–13 August 2015 (arrival on the 9th and departure on the 13th).


Conference Programme PDF

Inspiring speakers presented a diverse range of topics, with time for discussion. It was a three-day feast of knowledge and inspiration.

Our Purpose

The Alliance of Women Scientists and Scholars for a Better World is a collective of women scientists, scholars, and students who share a common goal of using their knowledge and expertise to create a better world.

We call ourselves an Alliance because we help to create, build, and maintain new alliances and networks for our members. As individuals we each bring vast knowledge and experience within our own fields; however, as a collective, an alliance, this knowledge is much more powerful.

For example, by connecting a soil scientist from the USA with a farmer in Kenya and a veterinarian in the Netherlands, we are able to build a powerhouse of shared knowledge that can be used in a very real way to improve our lives on this planet as well as the very soil that nourishes us.

Central to this idea is the recognition that everything in nature is connected to everything else; our own lives are intimately linked to the environment around us. In order to be truly life supporting, progress in one area of life must not deplete or degrade another area.

As women we have an innate understanding of this interconnectedness and need to nourish not only our children and ourselves, but also our whole near and far environment – and not only short term, but for future generations as well.

Our Activities

The Alliance has three principal activities at this time that provide opportunities for women to work together across disciplines to have a positive impact on our world:

  • We host international conferences that bring experts in different areas of knowledge and from different countries together for several days to get to know each other and explore the connections and synergies among their work.
  • We maintain a website where women can share their work and network with other women scientists.
  • We apply for grants to develop new knowledge or carry out projects that hold promise for improving the quality of life for people, especially women and children.
