Success: Extinguishing stress in women firefighters

The Canadian Women’s Wellness Initiative (CWWI) – the women’s wing of the Transcendental Meditation organization in Canada – serves women whose jobs, health, and lives are at risk due to chronic and acutely high levels of stress in their professions, including firefighters, police, first responders, and nurses. When the Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs and the International Association of Fire Fighters launched a mental wellness initiative, many women firefighters in Vancouver learned TM through CWWI, and soon found very clear benefits. ‘I have been practising TM for six months now and I am feeling less stress, less anxious, and far less annoyed by the frustrations in day to day life,’ reported a fire department captain with 17 years experience. ‘I think anyone in the first responders field would benefit from learning and practising Transcendental Meditation.’
