Thursday night began the 11th annual World Association for Vedic Studies Conference at Maharishi University of Management.

This year’s WAVES theme was “Vedic Living in a Modern World.”

MUM brought in guests from around the globe to speak on topics such as, leadership, management, agriculture, psychology and medicine.

“I really enjoyed the conference,” said Janet McDonald. “The three ladies who spoke went very deeply into what it means to be a conscious woman.”

McDonald attended Sunday’s, “Medicine and women” sessions, where doctors Denise Denniston Gerace, Veronica Butler and Leslie Goldstein explored topics such as the effects of stress on women, the biological differences between the sexes and how Transcendental Meditation has been linked to aiding in the stress reduction of women living in poverty.

“I think the message from this ancient system of health is still relevant,” said Nancy Lonsdorf.

Lonsdorf added that there are simple things women can do in their lives every day to become more healthy.

The question and answer sessions encouraged audience members to actively participate in the seminars.

“Some of the speakers were absolutely outstanding,” said Jocelyn Comtois.

The four-day event culminated Sunday evening.
