ABOUT: David Lynch Foundation (DLF)

Since 2005, the David Lynch Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, has helped to bring the stress-reducing Transcendental Meditation technique to more than 500,000 children and adults around the world. They focus their efforts on underserved inner-city students; veterans with PTSD and their families; and women and children who are survivors of violence and abuse. DLF organizes and hosts scientific and professional conferences on business, education, veterans, corrections, and rehabilitation as well as town hall meetings to educate leaders and the general public on the benefits of meditation and the good works of the Foundation.

 Transcendental Meditation (TM)

Transcendental Meditation is a simple, easily-learned technique, practiced for 20 minutes twice a day, sitting comfortably in a chair with the eyes closed. TM provides the body with a profound state of rest and relaxation; promotes healthy, integrated brain functioning; and enlivens the creative potential of the mind. More than 350 peer-reviewed studies verify the physiological and psychological benefits of TM for reducing stress and stress-related disorders such as hypertension, anxiety, depression, and insomnia while increasing creativity, intelligence, decision-making, energy, and focus. The TM technique has been learned by more than eight million people of all ages, educational backgrounds, and religious beliefs—and does not involve philosophy, a change in lifestyle, or religion.
