David Lynch has been practising Transcendental Meditation for the past 40 years. He attributes his successful filmmaking career and greatly expanded consciousness to his daily meditation practice. Below is a quote from David:
"I started Transcendental Meditation in 1973 and have not missed a single meditation ever since. Twice a day, every day. It has given me effortless access to unlimited reserves of energy, creativity and happiness deep within. This level of life is sometimes called "pure consciousness" - it is a treasury and this level of life is deep within us all. But I had no idea how powerful and profound this technique could be until I saw first-hand how it was being practised by young children in inner-city schools, veterans who suffer the living hell of post-traumatic stress disorder and women and girls who are victims of terrible violence."
The David Lynch Foundation was established in 2005 to ensure that every child anywhere in the world who wanted to learn to meditate could do so. Since 2005, the David Lynch Foundation has helped to bring Transcendental Meditation to over 600,000 children and adults around the world. This includes inner city students, veterans with PTSD and their families, and women and children who have experienced violence and abuse.
In 2019 the David Lynch Foundation Australia was established to bring Transcendental Meditation to at risk and disadvantaged people in Australia. Through the David Lynch Foundation Australia, TM has been taught to women in a shelter for domestic violence, police and paramedics with PTSD and a pilot project is underway to support disadvantaged youth.
